"Why believe the Bible?"
with Hank Hanegraaff and Lee Strobel
Thursday, October 17, 2002
4:30 pm - 6:00 pm Pacific
You've heard it a thousand times: "The Bible says...."
But who says the Bible is accurate to begin with? Maybe it's just a copy of a copy of a copy, with fresh errors introduced at each step. Can we be certain the Bible is divine rather than human in origin, while other religious books are human rather than divine in origin?
Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and national radio's Bible Answer Man, says yes. He will not only defend the reliability of the Bible, but he also will provide a helpful tool so others can remember why the Bible can be trusted. He'll be joined by Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Faith, who will challenge him with the toughest questions that seekers ask.
This seminar will equip your leaders and congregation to answer questions about the truth of the Bible with confidence and clarity. In addition, the format of this program makes it a perfect outreach event for unsaved friends, family and neighbors. If you've ever been asked, "Why should I believe the Bible?", this seminar is for you and the seekers in your life.
Who should attend this seminar:
Children's ministry leaders
Women's and men's ministry leaders
Your unsaved friends, family members, neighbors, and acquaintances
