Apologetics and Worldview

Paul Henebury

These lectures on Apologetics and Worldview were given to people whose ages ranged from about 15 to 70. I tried to be quite low-key and to strike a balance between a full-on presuppositional apologetics presentation and Christian worldview course. That means that I was not focused so much on just one or the other, but a blend of the two. I think it worked well sometimes and other times it just worked. [19 hours 11 minutes]
