We live in a skeptical age. People especially young people express doubts about Christian faith. In this thoughtful eight week study, Bishop Scott Jones, author of The Wesleyan Way , partners with his son, Rev. Arthur Jones, to address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion, and the church. The DVD consists of 8 videos, one per session. Each video is 8-10 minutes in length and includes an introduction by Scott J. Jones as well as a diverse group of young clergy addressing the eight questions with honesty and biblical integrity. Session Titles Can only one religion be true? Why is there suffering and evil? How can I believe in science and creation? How can I believe in a God I can't prove? Can I trust the Old Testament? Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues? Was Jesus' resurrection real? Why do Christians disagree about so many things? All video sessions are closed captioned.
