Where does the burden of proof rest in discussions about Christianity? Can the claims of Christianity be rationally defended or must we check our brains at the doors of faith? Join us Sunday night at 8p Central as we welcome apologist Larry Lewis live from Berlin, Germany. Larry is director of the Connections Resource Center in Berlin. Connections is part of a larger effort known as the Open Door Libraries which bring the knowledge of God to countries where Christian teaching and resources have been limited or restricted.
Do you have questions about the legitimacy Christianity and the Bible? Then grab a friend and stop by our live webcast. You can catch the program here or on our Sunday Night Discussions Google + page. Questions can be sent in prior to the show or while the program is live through one of these mediums.
This week for the Discussions we’ll be diving into some specific questions that have come in from our viewing and listening audience. Questions about God, the Bible, faith, pain and suffering? All topics are open for the discussion this week. Feel free to chime in if you want via Google + or our SND Face Book Page.
