In my first ever podcast interview, I interview scholar Dr. Lydia McGrew regarding her upcoming book Liberating the Gospels from Literary Devices, which comes up December 10th and can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com. The book has been positively reviewed by noted Christian scholars like Peter J. Williams, JP Moreland, and Craig Blomberg.
She is a widely published analytic philosopher, specializing in formal and classical theory of knowledge, testimony, and the philosophy of religion. She received her PhD in English from Vanderbilt University in 1995. She is the author of the widely acclaimed Hidden in Plain View: Undesigned Coincidences in the Gospels and Acts (DeWard, 2017), which defends the reliability of the New Testament using a long-neglected argument from incidental details. (I can’t recommend this book more highly!) She also co-authored the chapter on the Argument from Miracles in The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology along with her husband Dr. Tim McGrew.
