Apologetics for grade school children


(Carol Lou) #1

Our culture tends to make belief in God as a step into intellectual suicide. And so many of our children are walking away from the faith in high school and college. I was wondering if there is an approach that would present apologetics for the younger children so they are better prepared to face the challenges of our culture.
Thanks for considering my question.

Thanks so much. I am afraid I am rather computer illiterate and am still
trying to figure out how to understand the connect website. I appreciate
what you are doing very much. Thanks again.

You’re doing a great job - the first question you asked was excellent!

Hi @clou. It is indeed good to prepare the youth for what is waiting out for them in the real world. I’m not sure if this link would help, but this playlist is a simplified version of the arguments in I Don’t Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist by Norman Geisler and Frank Turek.
