The Zacharias Institute is launching a new evening series called #trendingquestions. Several times each year, we will bring in a speaker for an evening of engagement with one of the many urgent questions facing our culture. The topics include questions like, “Is Christianity a white man’s religion?” “Am I just my brain?” “Is suicide an option?” “What does the Bible have to say to the #MeToo generation?” and more.
Oxford University Professor and RZIM adjunct John Lennox will kick-off this new series on October 9 by addressing the critical questions surrounding artificial intelligence and how the future of artificial intelligence bears on a Christian vision of reality.
Just as many will be attending the event live at the Zacharias Institute, we will host a conversation about the event in RZIM Connect!
To prepare for the event, whether you’ll be with us in person or joining us online, the Zacharias Institute team has prepared a study guide for you!
You can download the study guide here:

We’re also going to start a series of conversations on the questions in the study guide.
We believe that active engagement is a better learning experience than passive watching.
So that you can get the most out of this unique event with Dr. Lennox, we encourage you to ask your questions, share your insights, and learn from other participants.
RZIM Connect is a friendly, encouraging environment for learning and growth. If you have any questions about the ground rules, please check out our A Checklist For A Good Response and RZIM Connect: A Moderated Community posts.
By the way, you can find all the conversations for this event organized under the ‘trendingquestions’ tag. Think of this like an automatically generated Table of Contents! You may also want to bookmark this post so it is easy for you to find.
Finally, you’ll be able to watch the livestream in RZIM Connect too! It is embedded right here and will start playing the night of the event. Set a reminder!
