I was a bit disappointed this interview. Rauser holds some controversial positions (for example, his book on "The Shack" and his position that possibly Scripture is inerrant in a mythical sense). You didn't bring up Rauser's controversial contention that God did not command the destruction of the Canaanite civilization even though the Bible clearly says that God did. (In an article published by the Philosophia Christi ) I was very interested in what Rauser had to say on these issues but they were not brought up.

Anyways, Rauser did have some good things to say, and your interview was well done for what it was. I was just hoping that some of these issues would have been addressed.
