7 Ready Responses to the Objections of Unbelievers: Apologetics- ONLINE Course

Are there unbelievers and questioners of your faith in your circle of family and friends? This 10 lesson course will prepare you to confidently defend the truthfulness of your Christian faith. Scripture says we are to be ready to give an answer for the hope within us, but we want to give an answer, not get into an argument. The purpose of this course is to provide you with ready, reasonable responses that should communicate the reason for your hope in Christ, in a kind and convincing manner that may become a mind changing, life changing conversion.
