Why Bertrand Russell Was Not A Christian  (5 pages)

Bertrand Russell was not only one of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century, he was also one of the century's most prolific and lucid writers. Since his famous essay explaining why he was not a Christian continues to be read and to have influence, I have offered a short essay interacting with it.

Answering Michael Martin's "Atheism, Christian Theism, and Rape"  (10 pages)

This essay attempts to answer an essay by Michael Martin in which he defends atheism against the charge of holding a subjective view of ethics. The specific issue of the ethical debate was rape. According to Martin, the Bible condones rape in certain cases and on the whole has a less than enlightened view of sexual morality. This essay offers another look at Euthyphro's Dilemma and an explanation of the Biblical passages that speak of rape.

The Harmony of Faith and Reason: Why Believe the Bible?  (1 page)

Modern men generally take faith and reason to apply to entirely different, and perhaps even opposing, realms of knowledge. Reason operates, it is thought, upon hard facts, whereas faith is thought to be a leap into the unknown. In a series of essays (not yet complete), I attempt to set forth a Biblical view of the relationship between faith and reason that is fundamentally different from the one offered by modern men.
