Overview

Do You Know What You Believe and How to Defend Your Faith?
 
The world is full of ideas that don’t reflect Jesus. In fact, according to a recent Barna study, only 3 percent of American evangelicals have an authentic biblical worldview.
 
As president of Summit Ministries and an authority on Christian worldview and apologetics, Dr. Jeff Myers will teach you how to understand what you believe, why you believe it, and how to defend it against these five fatal worldviews: 
  • Secularism
  • Marxism
  • Islam
  • New Spirituality
  • Postmodernism
