Cold Case Christianity

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 08:27:55 +0000
As an unbelieving skeptic, I was willing to accept the possibility that Jesus lived and taught as a 1st Century Rabbi, but I rejected much of the gospel accounts as fiction. I suspected the gospels had been corrupted and altered through the centuries. Defense attorneys often have similar questions about the status and condition of …

Why It’s Important to Guard Against Your Presuppositions

When I was an atheist, I held many presuppositions that tainted the way I investigated the claims of Christianity.

I’m occasionally asked to train people to share the Gospel, sometimes at evangelism camps. Whenever I begin training of this nature, there are always students present who have never shared their faith or the offer of Salvation.

Mark said he met Cindy at a party and intentionally directed the conversation toward spiritual matters; he hoped to share the gospel with her at some point in the evening. …

John’s Gospel May Have Been Last, But It Wasn’t Late
Mon, 13 Mar 2017 08:55:20 +0000
While teaching a recent Colson Center Short Course, I was asked about the dating of John’s Gospel.
