Understanding and Answering Atheism

Live Stream Available at Individual and Group Rates

Is religion dangerous? Is Christianity intolerant? Does God exist, and is He worth following? How do I share my faith in a culture where belief in God is dismissed as anti-intellectual and ridiculous?

Understanding and Answering Atheism is a conference designed for students, families, small groups, churches, and anyone interested in the rising challenge of atheism to the Christian worldview. Whether you’re a questioning skeptic or an interested Christian, join Ravi Zacharias, Abdu Murray, Vince Vitale, and other members of RZIM’s global speaking team June 23-24, 2017 as we consider the evidence for the Christian God and how Christians can lovingly respond to those who don’t believe in him.
