Over the years we've hosted different speakers and teachers to help us grow in our ability to answer both questions from others about our faith and our own questions and doubts.
Dr. William Lane Craig has had a big impact on us in both regards. Dr. Craig is renowned in the world of Christian apologetics. His book On Guard and his Reasonable Faith website and ministry are go-to resources for anyone beginning their study of apologetics. Dr. Craig cogently articulates the claims of the Christian faith and has engaged in fascinating discussions and debates with the likes of Sam Harris, the late Christopher Hitchens and recently with Jordan B. Peterson.
We dug through our Flickr and Vimeo archives and unearthed a few pictures and videos from his visits to our church!
More than 10 years ago, we hosted him for a few talks including one on the existence of God, another on the historicity of the resurrection, and he even preached the message at our Sunday worship service.
In 2010, Dr. Craig came back to Berkeley and gave a compelling argument for how an all-powerful, all-loving God can exist amidst a world of suffering and pain.
During that trip he also gave a talk called, "How Do We Know Jesus Was Raised from the Dead?" to a gathering of youth students at Rise, an event hosted by our Interhigh ministry.
We're grateful for how Dr. Craig has inspired us to think clearly and to increase our knowledge of the evidence for the Christian faith we hold.
