Os Guinness on the Essence of Apologetics (Part 4)

In part 4 of this lecture series on the essence of apologetics, Os Guinness considers how to persuade those who appear 'hard-hearted' and how to awaken an awareness of their need for the Gospel through various creative means.

How can there be just one religion?

In this talk, pastor and author Tim Keller addresses the objection of religious exclusivity and whether it is reasonable for Christians to claim that Jesus alone is the "way, the truth, and the life".
