- Truth Matters is a seven-session study for all youth based on the book of the same title.
Easy to read yet loaded with meat and substance, this book is a level-headed reaction to those who equate Christian faith with "blind faith," even those whose subtle or stated goal is to separate students from their religious traditions. Readers will discover the kind of historical information and thinking skills that build a sturdy backbone of confidence in high schoolers and young adults, making them able to defend by "reasoned faith" what the Bible claims as truth.
This seven-session study will help equip students to defend their faith in a world that continues to challenge the existence of God and the validity of His Word.
Students will be equipped to respond to tough questions that challenge the validity of their beliefs Group sessions will provide opportunities for discussion of these issues and help students know they are not alone in defending their faith.
