Can We Find Hope in Life Without God?

We live in a world where hope seems in short supply. The Coronavirus pandemic has revealed that so many of the things we placed our hope in (career, health, or our comfortable lifestyles) can let us down. Can we find a hope that carries us through difficult times? In this very personal Short Answers video, Andy Bannister shows why, if there were no God, then there would be, tragically, no hope to be found—but that if the claims of Jesus stand up, there is a hope to be found concrete enough to support us even through turbulent times. The famous atheist, Friedrich Nietzsche said “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.” Watch this Short Answers video and discover why Christianity offers the answer that Nietzsche was so desperately yearning for.
