In episode 227 of the Parker's Pensées Podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Greg Welty to discuss his new book on Alvin Plantinga in the P&R Great Thinkers series. We start off by discussing the nature of philosophy and Christian philosophy, then Dr. Welty gives us a brief intro to Plantinga and his thought, then we dive in deep on the logical and evidential problems of evil and recount the ways in which Alvin Plantinga sought to solve them.
