Hello, friends! (@Interested_In_Ask_RZIM, @interested_in_Ask_Away)
I am so excited to announce that this coming week Lisa Fields will be joining us in the hot seat. Lisa is the founder and President of the Jude 3 Project, a Christian apologetics organization based in Jacksonville, FL, which is dedicated to helping the Black Christian community know what they believe and why.
EDIT: Each Q&A with Lisa Fields is now in its own topic in order to make finding these resources easier.
Lisa Fields, one of the world’s most sought-after female apologist, combines her passion for biblical literacy with her heart for sharing God’s love to all those she meets. During college at the University of North Florida, she took a New Testament course that shifted the trajectory of her life. As a pastor’s kid, she was familiar with church, the Christian faith, and the importance of reading the Bible. She was also planning a career as a stockbroker in New York City. On the first day of her New Testament class, the professor declared, “I’m going to change everything you thought you knew about Jesus.” Throughout the course, her professor focused on biblical contradictions and textual criticism. In every sense of the matter, Lisa’s faith was challenged – she was forced to rethink what she believed and decide if she would keep believing or abandon her faith.
After college, she continued to wrestle with biblical concepts and her faith while working in the financial services industry. Each day she wrestled with God’s call on her life to further her education to better defend the faith. She pursued her Master of Divinity from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Her time in seminary propelled her into her calling as an apologist.
Lisa speaks regularly at evangelism, apologetic, and biblical literacy events at various universities and churches across the country as well as co-hosts a secular podcast for young professionals called Brunch Culture.
