Description

The Case for Christ DVD
A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed – or didn’t believe – as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.

Starring Mike Vogel (The Help, Cloverfield), Erika Christensen (Parenthood, Flight Plan), Faye Dunaway (The Thomas Crown Affair, Chinatown) and Robert Forster (The Descendants, Jackie Brown). Rated PG. Approx. 113 minutes.

Life in the Trinity: An Introduction to Theology with the Help of the Church Fathers

By Donald Fairbairn,
Robert E. Cooley Professor of Early,
Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Seminary

What can the early church contribute to theology today?

Although introductions to Christian theology often refer to its biblical foundations, seldom is much attention paid to the key insights of the early church into the nature of Christian faith and life. Donald Fairbairn takes us back to those biblical roots and to the central convictions of the early church, showing us what we have often overlooked, especially in our understanding of God as Trinity, the person and the nature of our salvation as sharing in the Son’s relationship to the Father.

“Donald Fairbairn’s mastery of early Christian theology shines out of this wonderful introduction to the world of patristic theology for evangelical readers. It is more than a wise and trustworthy guide taking the reader along what are unfamiliar paths for many Western readers. It is also a work that wears its learning lightly, but amounts to nothing less than a sustained exposition of the majestic coherence of the early Christian doctrine of union with God. I recommend it most highly.”

Why Does God Allow Evil?

By Clay Jones,
Associate Professor of Christian Apologetics,
Biola University

“If you are looking for one book to make sense of the problem of evil, this book is for you.” – Sean McDowell

GRASPING THIS TRUTH WILL CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF GOD FOREVER

If God is good and all-powerful, why doesn’t He put a stop to the evil in this world? Christians and non-Christians alike struggle with the concept of a loving God who allows widespread suffering in this life and never-ending punishment in hell. We wrestle with questions such as:

  • Why do bad things happen to good people?
  • Why should we have to pay for Adam’s sin?
  • Can eternal judgment be fair?

But what if the real problem doesn’t start with God… but with us?
