Does God exist? In this remarkable recording, listen as Greg Bahsen (author, pastor, and lecturer) and Gordon Stein (PhD and advocate of “rational atheism”) debate their respective beliefs. Includes over 2 hours of debate and bonus material.


Over 20 years after this great debate in 1985 at the University of California at Irvine, the question continues, “Does God Exist?” In this remarkable recording you can listen as Greg Bahnsen, author, pastor, lecturer, and founder of the Southern California Center for Christian Studies, and Dr. Gordon Stein, an aggressive advocate of “rational” atheism, who considered it his mission to destroy the silly faith of those who would dare embrace the existence of the God of the Bible, debate their respective beliefs.

Dr. Bahnsen was passionate about teaching apologetics. His conduct during this “Great Debate” exemplified the humble faithfulness to Christ and His Word. He tirelessly wrote and lectured in order to equip others to give a reason for the hope that they have in God and Jesus Christ.

Following is a quote from Dr. Bahnsen’s son as included in the bonus material:

In his life, and since his passing, I have listened to as many sermons of his as anyone has, yet I really do believe that this February 11, 1985, event ranks amongst his most faithful defenses of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In thought, word, and deed, he dismantled the arguments of the city of man, and portrayed them to be exactly what they were: theft from our own worldview, wrapped up in rebellion.
