It discusses the benefits and dangers of doubt and emphasizes that it is possible to have a strong faith and still have some doubts. [Available NOW]
This lesson examines the concept of emotional doubt and proposes a biblical and practical approach to dealing with it. It also offers specific suggestions for responding well to THREE common emotional struggles that people have with God: (1) Am I really saved? (2) Why is God so silent? (3) How can I know I’m doing God’s will? (This lesson could easily be expanded into several different lessons if desired.) [Available NOW]
This lesson identifies different types of doubt and briefly considers how one might respond to each type of doubt. It also stresses the importance of putting the significance of one’s doubts into proper perspective. [Available NOW]
This lesson aims to show how Christianity meets our deepest human needs.

The lesson includes a fill-in table activity. [Available NOW]
This lesson examines how major religions and worldviews think about God and how their conceptions of God differ from the Christian conception. It then explores the key attributes of the Christian God, showing how they are both biblical and reasonable. Along the way, it also responds to some objections or misconceptions raised against the Christian God. [Coming soon]
This lesson provides an overview of the Kalam cosmological argument for God’s existence–an argument that claims the universe began to exist and must have been caused to exist by a Being who sounds a lot like the God of the Bible. It briefly discusses the strong scientific evidence that the universe began to exist and shows how this points to God. [Coming soon]
This lesson examines how there is information behind life (contained in DNA) that is incredibly complex and points to an intelligent designer. It also points out how numerous factors are incredibly fine-tuned to allow life to exist anywhere in the universe and how this points to an intelligent designer–an intelligence who sounds a lot like the God of the Bible. [Coming soon]
This lesson briefly introduces the strategy of using moral arguments for God’s existence. It then focuses on one specific moral argument–a famous one often used by William Lane Craig. It summarizes and briefly defends Craig’s moral argument for the existence of God. (C. S. Lewis also used a moral argument for God’s existence, which was a key consideration in Lewis’s conversion to Christianity.) [Coming soon]
This lesson examines key historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. It defends FOUR basic historical facts that powerfully point toward the truth of the resurrection. (This lesson could easily be extended to two separate lessons.) [Coming soon]
This lesson shows how we can trust the Bible. It addresses: how we can be confident that the right books were included in the Bible; how we can know what the New Testament books originally said even though we only have copies of these books and not the originals; and how we can respond to the claim that the New Testament is filled with contradictions. [Coming soon]
This lesson addresses the most common objection against belief in God: the claim that an all-loving, all-powerful God does not fit with suffering and evil. The lesson examines the nature of evil, and it responds to the claim that God is incompatible with evil (the “logical” problem of evil) and the claim that evil makes God’s existence unlikely (the “evidential” problem of evil). Finally, it discusses how evil remains an emotional challenge for many people even though we can provide good answers to show that God is compatible with evil.
This lesson offers a biblical perspective on tolerance. It emphasizes that Christians are called both to be tolerant (properly understood) and to uphold objective truth. It explores the nature of objective truth, showing that truth does not depend on our preferences and that contradictory truth claims cannot both be true. The world’s religions—since they contradict each other—cannot all be true, and we must uphold the truth of Christianity.
This lesson examines the concepts of justice, human rights, and human equality. It reflects upon the moral foundation that is necessary in order for us to have an objective moral duty to uphold justice and the dignity, rights, and equality of all humans. It examines key biblical teaching that should direct our attitudes and behavior concerning justice and human equality, and it shows how these biblical principles apply to specific examples of injustice and inequality that are prominent today (injustices related to race, sexual orientation, gender, and the unborn).
This lesson draws many insights from Greg Koukl’s excellent book Tactics. It examines what it means to be an ambassador for Christ and provides tips on how to do this effectively. It emphasizes many purposes and advantages of asking lots of questions when sharing your faith with others. It discusses the value of recognizing the need to diagnose and target an unbeliever’s specific barriers to faith in Christ when witnessing, and it helps you to detect and kindly correct some common errors that unbelievers make when objecting to Christianity.
