An introduction to this video series with Josh and Sean McDowell

The Truth About Atheists

What would you say if an atheist challenged your deepest convictions about God and the Bible? In this session Sean role plays an atheist, raises tough questions against the faith by taking live questions from the audience, and then steps out of character and helps the audience reflect on the experience. This is a hands-on experience where you will walk away motivated and equipped to more lovingly and intelligently make a case for Christianity.

The Skeptics Quest

Josh shares the unforgettable story of his personal encounter with Jesus Christ. A dysfunctional family life, an alcoholic and violent father and a sexually abusive worker on the family farm left Josh with a lifetime of scars and shame. Eager to rail against the existence of a loving God, he set out to intellectually disprove Christianity. You’ll find encouragement, hope and redemption in Josh’s story of how God’s passionate love and grace, along with the evidences for the truth of Christianity, forever changed the life of this former agnostic.

Talking Truth Together

Josh D. McDowell has been at the forefront of cultural trends and ground breaking ministry for more than 50 years. He shares the essentials of the Christian faith in everyday language so that people of all ages and stages are prepared for the life of faith and the work of ministry.

The Truth About The Old Testament

This incredible spiritual adventure through history, archaeology and antiquities will satisfy your mind and soul regarding the reliability of the Bible. You will see and experience an authentic 500-year-old Jewish scroll, learn how these ancient scrolls were preserved and see manuscript fragments that were hidden for over 1600 years! Through the unveiling of ancient artifacts you will have a first-hand encounter of how God has protected His Word through the centuries.

The Truth About Intelligent Design

In this session we will explore the most recent scientific data in cosmology, physics, biochemistry, and biology that point toward an Intelligent Designer. David was right that the heavens give us knowledge about God (Ps 19:1-2). Those who open their minds to the possibility of an explanation beyond the natural world will find the design hypothesis a powerful explanation for the scientific evidence.

The Truth About The New Testament

Does the Bible we have today really contain what was written down over 2000 years ago or has it been changed? Through manuscript authority Josh presents convincing evidence supporting the reliability of the New Testament. The evidence for the validity of Scripture reveals that God has protected His Word through the centuries and we can know that it’s true.
