In case you missed this week's series on my time at the Religious Freedom Monument this past Sunday, January 12th, here is a list of the postings so you can have them "at the ready."
Let me share you with you that it was an enlightening experience and one that gave some confidence in my listening and sharing with those who are antagonistic to the historical Christian faith.
Atheism is a bankrupt worldview and folks who embrace such a worldview need to see this from those who are ready to engage the atheistic worldview with "gentleness and respect." (1 Peter 3:15). Here are the links to this week's posts.

I will be more than happy to answer your questions and share with you more about what we can offer you as a ministry.
Here is a recommended resource that will assist you in understanding the atheistic worldview and in the defense of the faith:
I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist, by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek. One review said the following,
To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.
Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. Buy this book here on Amazon's website.
True Reason Confronting the Irrationality of the New Atheism, by Carson Weitnauer and Tom Gilson (eds.) The Amazon description states that,
In sixteen, carefully constructed essays, these Christian thinkers demonstrate that “reason is the New Atheists’ weakness, not their strength.” They show that “Christianity is on the whole much more reasonable than atheism,” and that “Christian faith as a whole supports sound reason, and Christians have applied it well.” With coherence and competence these writers address the fallacies of “the party of Reason,” and offer an introduction to the true reason of Christianity by making their case equally accessible to both the casual enquirer and the serious student.
