It's a nice idea for a debate topic, but I think we've got a mismatch on our hands here, going by Will's opening car crash.

If anything, I'd think that Byron could probably mount a better rational defence of Christianity than Will, as he'd choose his battlegrounds more carefully. Many modern Christians don't believe that there's proof of the existence of God, the resurrection as a historical event, miracles, etc. but merely that the garbled messages of the Bible have something important to tell us. At the end of the day, that's probably going to hit some irrational buffers too, but the theology of John Shelby Spong seems a lot more defensible than that of William Lane Craig for sure.
