Unbelievable? Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World

London, England July 12, 2014

Learn to answer the tough questions from some of the leading Christian thinkers of our day.

Join us as Justin Brierley, William Lane Craig, Os Guinness, Craig Hazen, Ruth Jackson, Jeff Zweerink and Clay Jones tackle some of today's most commonly asked questions. Questions like: Why does God allow evil? Is there evidence for the resurrection? Does God Exist? Are the Scriptures reliable? We hope you'll join us as we explore why we believe what we believe as Christians.
