Hello Professor Francisco,

I am an SMP student at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Professor Benjamin Mayes learned that I would like to focus my ministry on Christian Apologetics and suggested that I contact you. Any advice or direction that you could point a very raw beginner like me in, would be greatly appreciated.

A Blessed, Merry Christmas and New Year To You And Your Family

Greetings Professor Francisco,
I’m wanting to learn more about how to defend the gospel against the New Atheist movement. We found out that our new daughter-in-law decided that her faith in Christ had no empirical basis and because he didn’t answer her prayers to take away her doubts she decided there was no God. Now her focus in life is telling everyone how immoral God is and how Christians are a bunch of superstitious, close minded, homophobic bigoted idiots. She is also estranging us from our son whom we’ve heard is either an agnostic or also an atheist.

The strange things that come out of her mouth as to what she now believes the Christian faith is sounds like a different Christ then the Christ of the Bible. If I interpreted scripture like they do I too wouldn’t worship or believe in God. How something can get so twisted amazes me I’m not sure if I believe the battle lies in trying to prove there is a God to her. But maybe to show her that the God she once believed in wasn’t the God of the Bible. I also wonder if part of turning the light on for them might be in helping them to see that the bible can be trusted to be accurate and that Jesus was a real historic person not someone made up from fairy tales. They are now reading Godless by Dan Barker. From what I understand about his faith in Christ before he became an Atheists was based more on emotion and superstition then on the objective word of God. Any help you can give me would be appreciated greatly.

Happy New Year, Professor Francisco

I am interested in starting a series of six to eight week Apologetics Classes at my church. I was wondering if you could recommend a curriculum (that includes videos, Bible passages, and handouts) that I could use.

God’s Peace
