October 31st: Was Jesus God? A Rational, Philosophical Defense of Christian Faith
with Richard Swinburne
Does Christianity make sense? Can a rational, modern person believe that Jesus rose from the dead? Richard Swinburne, an internationally recognized professor of philosophy from Oxford University, explains why he believes that the main Christian doctrines about the nature of God and his actions in the world are true — and rationally justifiable, even in today's world of science, sophistication and doubt.
