From issues like Islam to the problem of pain and suffering, from science to sex, our culture is increasingly thrusting us into challenging questions and conversations. 
Are we prepared to answer?

Join leading apologists Lee Strobel (The Case for Christ) and Mark Mittelberg(The Questions Christians Hope No One Will Ask), along with some of today’s most respected apologists, authors, and theologians as they address various collision points between our culture and a biblical faith. Together they will help us, as 1 Peter 3:15 commands, to become "prepared to give an answer … with gentleness and respect."

Invite friends from the community or campus to join you for a stimulating discussion of hot button questions:
  • "Is the New Testament Reliable?"
  • "Does Science disprove God?" 
  • "Would A good God allow pain and suffering?"
  • "Did Jesus really rise from the dead?"
  • "Which is true: Christianity or Islam?"
  • "Is God against gay people?
