Harari's Fiction: Where Does the Israeli's Historian's Story Go Wrong?

Yuval Noah Harari became famous for his two best-selling books on human history: Sapiens and Deus Homo. In these two engaging books he gives a short summary of history and where he thinks it is leading. Harari's books are widely read and have earned praise from the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama, and Bill Gates. In this talk we will look at the main arguments behind Harari's historical vision and then subject his vision to an evangelical criticism.

We are often told that penal substitution as a model of the atonement is a late invention of Saint Anselm or the Reformers, and so we are encouraged to go back to earlier interpretations of the death of Christ. This talk will use patristic evidence to demonstrate that this is a false reconstruction of history and explain the biblical basis of the penal substitutionary view of atonement.
