Woohoo! Thanks for collecting these links, Brian! I gave you a plug in my post, so you should see a little inbound traffic.

I would highly recommend the Tim McGrew one. I listened to it today and was thoroughly enjoyed it!

I also enjoyed the McGrew interview. One question: does anyone know how a skeptic would respond to the argument from undesigned coincidences? The best argument I could offer would be to claim that Markan priority could explain any Mark-Matthew-Luke coincidences. Some scholars also claim that John had access to Mark, which would then partially explain the Mark-John coincidences. I might chalk the rest up to chance?
This obviously seems ad hoc to me, but I always like to think out the possible responses to an argument before I use it. Any other ideas?

Hi Neil,

I had a similar thought when I heard some of the undesigned coincidences. However, I wonder how much the Mark explanation could solve. If I remember correctly, many of the coincidences in the non-mark gospels add information that wasn't in Mark. Therefore, they must have some information that Mark did not provide in his account. I would be interested to see how some of our skeptical friends answer these as well. It's still amazing to me how they are not used more.
