Hi friends, @Interested_In_Ask_RZIM,
This week we have the very special opportunity to ask our questions of Dr. Craig Hazen, the founder and director of the Christian Apologetics Program at Biola University.
I always look forward to seeing Craig. We meet at least twice a year at the Apologetics Leadership Group meetings, which includes a small group of participants from most of the leading apologetics ministries in the United States. I particularly admire Craig’s absolute dedication to God, genuine love for others, passion for apologetics, and great sense of humor. There are dozens (and dozens?) of successful ministries that got their start thanks to Craig’s encouragement and vision.
During our last meetings, this summer at the Zacharias Institute, Craig shared excerpts from his new and excellent book Fearless Prayer. It is now available for purchase:
Having heard Craig speak about the book, and having read it for myself, I am so encouraged that we have the opportunity to ask him our questions about prayer. In particular, the incredible promise that Jesus gives us, as recorded in John 15:7 — If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
In his book, Craig explains why we often doubt this promise - and why we can and should trust that Jesus really meant it!
