Wednesdays 7:30pm | Paraparaumu

Last term was a raging success, with feedback such as 1 out of 15 participants describing the group as "Mind blowing", "I wish there was some kind of written material", and "Give everyone prep work". With that in mind we will be working through On Guard, written by one of Christianity's most astute philosophers Dr William Lane Craig. It's an excellent introduction to useful apologetic material that will strengthen your faith and ensure you have answer as to why you believe.
