    "Alot to think about."

    This book refutes attempted secular moral arguments against the God of the Bible. It also discusses the use of hyperbole in the Old Testament.

    "a different point of view."

    it is interesting to realize what GOD'S plan for the nation of Israel really was, not exactly what we think GOD planned

    "Answering the hard questions of the Old Testament!"

    Please read this book! It is very long but it's worth it. If you have ever struggled with the Old Testament before this book will answer your questions. Single-handedly this book refutes any Old Testament disputes of what really happened in ancient Israel.

    "Is God a moral monster?"

    As a 45 year student of the Bible and apologetics, I greatly enjoy and profited from this work.

    "Well-rounded, thorough, and not bulletproof"

    As much as this audiobook presented material that was often presented in a dry, systematic manner, the narrator and the material hit the mark of completing a sweeping response to all the complaints about the morality of God, His people, and the Law of Moses based on events and teachings in the Old Testament. I was impressed that, as different topics and questions were addressed, I might think of a question or issue with the logic or information presented, and then, before the discussion of the topic was complete, those questions and issues were often addressed! :) I say that Mr. Copan's material isn't bulletproof as an apologetic because folks' perspectives on these topics and questions may not be satisfied with answers like 'the situation was a significant moral upgrade of existing social values' or things like that. For people who see themselves as having a superior intellect and moral foundation to which God must answer, some of Dr. Copan's arguments and conclusions will come short. But within faith in the risen Lord Jesus Christ and Him being the fulfillment of the Law and the revelation of God's character in light of that Law, it is a very powerful and condensed refutation of neo-atheist criticisms.

    "Boring"

    This book just seems to be a bunch of excuses, not explanations, for the difficult passages in the Old Testament. In one of the last chapters of the book, he even states that the church is the true Israel. That's when I stopped listening.

    "In your face Dawkins!"

    This is a refreshing book that lets the Christian reader know that he doesn't have to apologize for the God of the Old Testament. A great explanation of why calling God a moral monster is more to stir a emotional response rather than any in depth look at the subject matter.
