Product Description:

December 11, 2006 marked the 11th anniversary of the death of Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen. February 11, 2007 will mark the 22nd anniversary of the "The Great Debate: Does God Exist?," a formal debate between Dr. Bahnsen and Dr. Gordon S. Stein, held at the University of California (Irvine) in 1985. As time passes, it is important that we continue to introduce people (especially young people) to Dr. Bahnsen's work in Christian Apologetics. This new multi-media edition of the Great Debate provides a wealth of introductory materials, useful for individuals and schools.

Limitations in the original recording equipment and master recordings left us with some diminished audio quality. However, through the kind services of Imagineering Studios, Inc., these recordings were digitally remastered from the original reel-to-reel recording and they were able to offer some helpful improvements. In addition, we have added 3-minute tracks to the recordings, which make stopping and starting the debate more convenient. The debate is offered on two standard CDs, playable on any CD player.
