God Created Your Brain: Fall 2008 Online Apologetics Academy Enrolling

Many people are intimidated by the pompous declarations of those like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris.  Many people think that becoming a Christian means checking your brain at the door.  Some think that it would take endless study to be able to stand up to the challenges against Christianity.  Let us be clear:  it does take some work, but it need not be all at once and you can do a little at a time.  The Athanatos Online Apologetics Academy offers short modules that do not require massive amounts of your time.  At the same time, you’ll gain resources to … continue reading...

Highly Recommended: Peter Kreeft’s Handbook of Christian Apologetics

This isn’t a formal review by any means but I did recently complete this book and thought it was so fantastic it deserved a quick mention. The book was suggested to me in my quest for a ‘basic Christianity’ book to give to skeptics that would lay out in easy to understand but documented detail precisely what Christianity is, the kind of thing that Dorothy Sayer’s ‘well educated Zoroastrian’ could produce. Kreeft’s Handbook is not that book. (It is, however, the book I was looking for to serve as the apologetics text book for the certificate of apologetics for my … continue reading...

And on the Sixth Day: God Created Your Brain. Apologetics Academy Update

NEW LINK TO ACADEMY

I am very pleased to announce that the online academy produced through my ministry, Athanatos Christian Ministries, has developed an apologetics certificate program. It is designed mainly for Christians who know that apologetics is important but don’t know where to start, though conceivably it could be useful for anyone who is interested in developing a deeper understanding of what Christianity is all about.

Our “On the Sixth Day” advertising campaign is also up and running. We are advertising on the ChristianPost.com and other places. Take a look at the banners in this post and scattered … continue reading...
