Is there credible evidence for life after death? Drawing on compelling conversations with respected scientists, scholars, and other experts, our guest will examine the concept of hell, the logic of damnation, the alternative view of reincarnation, the exclusive claims of Christ, near-death experiences---including his own---and more to show why death is not the end but the beginning.
Evangelism is an extraordinary task; it’s what God uses to bring people from death to life. But it has always been difficult. C.S. Lewis was used by God in the conversions of countless people, from friends and acquaintances in his own lifetime to modern-day readers of books such as The Chronicles of Narnia and Mere Christianity (the most influential Christian book of the 20th century). So, if we want help with evangelism, there is much we can learn from the clarity and imagination of this hugely influential Christian writer. Join us today as our guest helps us to apply the methods Lewis used (storytelling, humor, imagery and more) in our own conversations.
