What can Christian apologists learn from Jordan Peterson?

The Christian viewer might be left feeling a little perplexed, because unlike most other guests on this show, Peterson does not fit neatly into either the “Christian” nor “non-Christian” box. Susan Blackmore left us in do doubt as to her atheistic views, but what has Peterson offered, if anything, in defence of the Christian faith, that could be of use to us?

The answer turns out to be, surprisingly, quite a lot! With a little bit of digging and explaining, we can take away much from his exchange with Blackmore, to help us make the case for Christ in a unique, creative, and culturally engaging way!

And that’s what I’m here to help you do! In this course, consisting of lecture videos, clips from the episode, slides, and question assignments, I will be walking you through key moments in this debate and helping you to unearth the sometimes hidden gems that Peterson offers us, in making the case for why we really do need God to make sense of life.
