Christianity was also, to my surprise, radical – far more radical than the leftist ideologies with which I had previously been enamoured.
“What does it mean to be human?” I think that is one of the great questions of our age which pops up all over the place.
So I started to look (really look) for this atheistic evidence on Jesus. I trawled bookshops for books on atheism. I scoured atheist websites. I read detailed, hostile reviews of “The Case for Christ”. I listened to and read articles and interviews with well known atheists. I read the New Testament for myself. I read biographies and critiques of Jesus by non-Christians. I did this when I was an agnostic. I still do this today as a follower of Jesus.
Solas is excited to announce that we are actively searching for a gifted speaker to join our ministry. We need someone to work with the growing Solas team to help fulfill the speaking, writing and teaching obligations of Solas (both in terms of evangelism and evangelism training) throughout the country and, where required, further afield.
In the last few weeks I have also had the incredibly exciting opportunity of going and speaking at Edinburgh University. This time though, it was not at any of the campus Christian groups, but at the Edinburgh University Islamic Society. The way that meeting came about is hilarious!
I think the same is true of evangelism. Fear doesn’t have to be paralysing
a historian who had seen the damage the church has done when it has tried to manipulate society to enact the vision of some strange kind of theocracy. Understandably he recoiled from it
It was great to see responses during the mission—some people giving their lives to Christ for the first time and about 40 people signed up for the Alpha Course
It was great to see the students really engaged, the lunch-bars full; and people coming to Christ – all the things we get really excited about.
The opportunities for evangelism are tremendous, and that's what I want to do.
