Dr. Robert Sungenis
Dr. Robert Sungenis is a theologian and Christian apologist, and the president of Catholic Apologetics International (CAI), which evangelizes the Catholic faith. He has also been a preacher, elder, and adult Sunday school director in several Protestant churches. He is not only an apologist, but also an author, and sometimes appears as a guest speaker on various radio programs. Dr. Sungenis received a B.A. in Religion from George Washington University, an M.A. in theology from Westminster Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Calamus International University. He is renowned for the apologetics and geocentrism.
Dr. Hugh Ross is president and founder of Reasons to Believe (RTB). Dr. Ross is also an astronomer and best-selling author who travels the globe speaking on the compability of advancing scientific discoveries with the timeless truths of Christianity. At RTB, Dr. Ross leads a team of scholars who keep tabs on the frontiers of research with the goal of demonstrating that sound reason and scientific findings—including the very latest discoveries—consistently support rather than erode, confidence in the biblical God. He shares this message through numerous books—including
Navigating Genesis, Hidden Treasures in the Book of Job, and Why the Universe Is the Way It Is. With a degree in physics from the University of British Columbia and a National Research Council of Canada fellowship, Dr. Ross earned a PhD in astronomy from the University of Toronto. In 2012, Dr. Ross, together with Dr. Gerald Schroeder, received the Ide P. Trotter Prize presented by Texas A&M University in recognition of his work in demonstrating connections between science and religion.
