We are fortunate as a church to be close (driving distance) from BIOLA UNIVERSITY. They have an amazing graduate program in Apologetics (that's the discipline of defending the faith), which offers free and reasonably prices events in our area. Check out the below events and try to make one. You won't regret it.

PRIVILEGED SPECIES: AN EXCLUSIVE ADVANCED FILM SCREENING WITH DR. MICHAEL DENTON
La Mirada (Los Angeles), California
Michael Denton, MD, Ph.D.
Craig Hazen, PhD
The renowned Australian biologist Dr. Michael Denton (author of the groundbreaking books EVOLUTION: A THEORY IN CRISIS and NATURE’S DESTINY) will present a new film highlighting his work that overturns the Darwinian idea that life on earth, especially human life, is the result of accidents in a blind and uncaring universe. PRIVILEGED SPECIES is a documentary that explores growing evidence from physics, chemistry, biology, and related fields that our universe was designed for large multi-cellular beings like ourselves. The documentary investigates the special properties of carbon, water, and oxygen that make human life and the life of other organisms possible, and it explores some of the unique features of humans that make us a truly privileged species.
NEWS FLASH: A free DVD of the new film will be given to attendees at the event (one per household, while supplies last).

The demand for apologetics education is growing exponentially in churches around the country. Christians everywhere want to gain the confidence that comes with the knowledge to give “reasons for faith.” So rather than waiting for Christians to come to the Biola University campus, Biola is bringing apologetics learning to churches everywhere. More than a quarter million people have taken advantage of the expertise of the Biola faculty on the road, and now, so can you and your church.
Speakers at the upcoming conferences include Lee Strobel, J.P. Moreland, Clay Jones, Sean McDowell, Craig Hazen, and many more. Plan a conference at your church today!
