Only $20 for all three Saturdays!
PART 1. Saturday May 26
Introduction: the challenges or questions people have. In the context of Australia today, an approach that is neither defensive nor aggressive, but confessional. Examples from history.
PART 2, Saturday June 2
What the Christian faith has contributed to society. The new atheism of Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens and the older atheism of Feuerbach, Marx, Nietzche and Freud. Charles Darwin and the relation between science, faith and the Bible.
