Some atheists have asked me about the academy. Look, I’ll be frank. It’s designed with Christians in mind. Honestly, some of you skeptics couldn’t go wrong being exposed to Christianity as taught and I think if you could stomach the fact that you were financially supporting this ministry you would be well served to have a guided tour of such influential Christian scholars such as FF Bruce, Bruce Metzger, Peter Kreeft, William Lane Craig, and Gary Habermas. It ain’t going to be “Sntjohnny Hour.” So, do what you will, but remember, the ACADEMY is NOT A DEBATE FORUM! Ask questions, sure. Our facilitators have better uses of their time then to get into extended arguments.
Other notes: The Problem of Pain and Suffering is canceled for lack of students. The other courses are currently set to go forward on schedule. Some adjustments may be necessary.

And for goodness sake, please don’t sign up with a yahoo or AOL address. They’re killing me.
Look forward to having you, or those that I already have, seeing you!
