Here are details of another of our new virtual classrooms which are running this autumn and which are open to anyone. (You can find more information about our virtual classrooms here.)
We live in a world where doubt is heroic and faith is moronic. That’s why we need apologetics, which helps us in two ways: (1) personal edification and (2) persuasive evangelism.
It is common for Christians to be disturbed by things they find in the Bible and doubts that they have encountered out in the world. Apologetics helps us tackle and understand these issues that otherwise can undermine our confidence in the person and promises of the Lord Jesus.
Also in our increasingly post-Christian society there are many objections to taking the Bible seriously and many difficulties in communicating the gospel with secular people. Apologetics helps us to think through the hardest questions in the classroom, and equips us with strategies for sharing the good news of Jesus out in the field.
The course will be taught by Rev David Nixon and Dr Andy Bannister, drawing on materials and experiences developed while doing apologetics ministry in 21st century Scotland.
Wednesdays October 7, 14, 21, 28; November 11, 18, 25; December 2, 9
Time: 11.00am – 1.00pm

We want to make our courses as widely accessible as possible so this course, like our other virtual classrooms, is available on a donation basis, though the usual cost for this course would be £90.
Pre-registration for this course is essential and can be done here.
