This brief story represents precisely why I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Apologetics.
Like Dr. Thornbury, the story’s author, “I [have] covenanted with God to help people like the 18-year-old version of [Dr. Thornbury] —people who are on the boundary of leaving the church, and are looking for just one good reason to stay.
I have highlighted various statements that stood out to me, personally. For instance, it’s “after high school/beginning of college” that most Christian students are confronted with intelligent challenges to their faith, catapulting them into a philosophical and theological whirlwind.
Dr. Gregory Thornbury is President of The King’s College in NYC.
