Thrive Apologetics Conference 2014:
Inspiring An Intelligent Faith

Roseville, CA October 10-11, 2014

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

Join us as Dr. J.P. Moreland, Dr. Stephen Meyer, Dr. Craig Hazen and nationally renowned former atheist Lee Strobel 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.
