David Robertson, Dr. Devin Brown
Air Date December 18, 2014
Hour 1 – The Faith of our Families
It can be heart-breaking when your child or loved one rejects the Biblical truth they once embraced. What is the best way to encourage them to re-examine the claims of Christ for themselves? Bible teacher and Christian apologist, David Robertson, will teach us to effectively share the love of Jesus to those who have walked away from the faith!
Hour 2 – Tolkien
J.R.R. Tolkien’s books, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy, are some of the most popular books of the last century. While we may be familiar with some of his written works, very few of us know anything about the man behind these epic tales. English professor and Tolkien scholar, Dr. Devin Brown, will give us a glimpse into the life of this beloved author and will explain why he very nearly didn’t write these great works at all!
