"I'm going to do you the dignity of making an argument"
- Dr. Stephen Meyer
It is with this statement, early on in the first lesson of TrueU's Does God Exist? video series, that Dr. Stephen Meyer, author of the best-selling book Signature in the Cell, begins systematically making a scientific and philosophical case for the existence of God.
TrueU, from the creators of Focus on the Family's The Truth Project, is a DVD-based apologetics curriculum aimed at students 15-22 "who are high school students preparing to go to college and undergraduate students who have already begun to experience an onslaught of challenges both in and out of the classroom."
Indeed; statistics indicate that nearly 90% of students who enter college lose their faith before leaving. Something is very wrong.
In TrueU's: Does God Exist? Dr. Meyer plays a "philosophical survival game" pitting four worldviews against one another in the quest to decide which one gives the best answers. Dr. Meyer helps you examine the evidence and provides the tools needed to defend your faith and make it your own.
Here are some video previews of the series:

As I have written about before, we in the body of Christ have for to long sat on the sidelines and watched what we believe and hold so dear be torn apart by false teachings and vain philosophies. It is time for us to stand-up and engage our cultural intellectually! The Bible commands it, reason demands it, and are children deserve to be equipped to "make a defense"(1 Peter 3:15) to those who question them.
TrueU is an outstanding apologetics curriculum that I believe followers of Christ of all ages will benefit from. I strongly encourage you and your church to check it out and implement this outstanding program.

Courage and Godspeed,
