Ask Andy Bannister (November 25-29, 2019)

Hello, friends!

This coming week we are pleased to welcome to the forum (all the way from ‘Fun-dee’, Scotland) Andy Bannister to answer our questions about faith and life! Andy is the author of our current #christian-growth:book-studies read: The Atheist Who Didn’t Exist, so all of those who are @Interested_In_Book_Studies do take advantage of this opportunity to ask him about some of the questions that are arising for you.

Please note that, due to travel, Andy will start replying to you and your questions on November 27th.

EDIT: Each Q&A with Andy Bannister is now in its own topic in order to make finding these resources easier.
