S03-E04 Josh McDowell and his speech “A logical defense of the Christian faith”. McDowell has spoken to millions of college students over the past forty years. His most popular public lectures were on a logical defense for the Christian faith. McDowell traveled the country making presentations with sponsorship by various organizations. An emphasis of his talks was that a choice to believe in the Christian faith is not a leap of faith. Rather, there is plenty of evidence that can lead someone to make a decision for believing in Christianity. This particular speech is a long-one at over an hour. It is packed with the evidence that led Josh McDowell as a skeptic to make this decision. I thought this a good episode in the context of our approach to Easter in a few weeks.

In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: one a biography of Mr. McDowell and an article about one of key arguments for the faith originally written by C.S. Lewis, an enormously influential Christian who also argued that Christianity was not a blind leap of faith.
