Frank Turek, co-author of “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist” with Normal Geisler has some interesting comments in his latest newsletter. Turek is hitting the college campus as a Christian apologist. Here are a few pertinent points he makes:
- Three out of every four Christians leave church in college (that’s 75%!!!)
- A hunger for truth is still present in the college arena
- Doing presentations on campus has (generally?) drawn far more people than expected
- Skeptics have turned up at the presentations, asked questions, and admitted the answers given were “good”
- Attendees have stayed well after planned finishing time
This reminds me of the Bill Craig visit earlier this year. People were apparently sitting on the floor, having packed out three lecture theatres in Auckland! Can we do something similar on campus in NZ?
Finally, Turek has written a new book: “Correct, NOT Politically Correct: How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone”. You can buy the PDF eBook online now. Here is the description:
Why not legalize same-sex marriage? Who could it possibly hurt?
Using sound reasoning and evidence—not religion—award-winning author Frank Turek shows that everyone will be hurt including children, the nation, and even homosexuals themselves. Turek provides concise answers to objections about equal rights, discrimination, and being born a certain way, and he exposes the real reason gay activists are trying to impose same-sex marriage on the country without a single vote from the people.
Turek’s message is direct but respectful. It is correct, not politically correct. And it is a message that we must not ignore.
