Adult Education Study - January
"Why Do You Believe That?"
This 4-part series is based on the book
Why Do You Believe That? A Faith Conversation
" by Mary Jo Sharp, a former atheist and now Christian author and apologetics instructor. Each week, we will look at topics such as: foundational beliefs, how Christianity compares to other religions, how Jesus used reasoning in the Bible to talk to unbelievers, and how the story of Jesus has been reliably transmitted 2000 thousand years later. This series will definitely come with some great discussion time. It's an opportunity for all of us to understand
why we can be confident in our faith conversations with others about the truth of Jesus and who He is.
For more information, contact Katherine Richards about this offering and other offerings during our Education Hour.
