On-line Resources

Post a comment on on-line or other Apologetics resources you have found insightful for your growth.

Dr. Frank Turek at Ohio University February 2011

Have you ever asked yourself these questions?

  • Is Christianity actually true?
  • Does being raised in a Christian home make Christianity true?
  • Does your faith make Christianity true?
  • …Do atheists have faith?
  • Does it take faith to trust that blind, undirected, natural processes can explain many of things we observe in reality?
  • Do Richard Dawkins and other atheists really present credible arguments against the Christian faith?

Perhaps you are already saying, “I have never thought about these issues.” That is why I am pleased to announce that Ratio Christi Student Apologetics Alliance will be hosting an apologetics event at The Ohio State University. Dr. Frank Turek will be coming to the campus on Feb 24th, 25th 2011 to do a two day presentation on his book which he co-authored with Dr. Norman Geisler called I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist. Frank has debated Christopher Hitchens on two occasions and spoken on dozens of college campuses. Here are the official details: Dr. Turek will be in two different university campuses the week of February 21st.

Current Book Study

In a 2003 study, the Barna Research Group revealed a stunning statistic that continues to reverberate throughout the evangelical world – only nine percent of professing Christians have a biblical worldview.1

Because of this, today’s believers live very similarly to non-believers.  A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy, and we begin to wonder what life’s ultimate purpose really is.  We are, in short, losing our bearings as a people and a nation.

To counter this downward slide within the body of Christ, Focus on the Family has launched one of the most ambitious and powerful projects in the history of our ministry – Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project®.

The Truth Project is a DVD-based small group curriculum comprised of 12 video lessons (recommended to be viewed and discussed over 13 consecutive weeks) taught by Dr. Del Tackett, instructor of Christian Worldview at the Focus Leadership Institute and a former Senior Vice President of our ministry.  This study is the starting point for looking at life from a biblical perspective.  Each lesson discusses in great detail the relevance and importance of living the Christian worldview in daily life.

Who Was Jesus?

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”  (Mark 8:29, NIV)

What do we base our knowledge and faith of Christ upon?  Can scripture be relied upon?

This is a sample of Chapter 8 of William Lane Craig’s book On Guard.
