Butt/Ehrman Debate DVD


<<Order Here>>

We at Apologetics Press have always been particularly sensitive to those voices that have exerted the greatest negative impact on mainstream culture. The forces of evolution, atheism, skepticism, and pseudoscience have swept over American civilization with flood-like devastation. For over 35 years, A.P. has sought to combat and expose these sinister forces in hopes of insulating as many souls as possible from their fury. The truth is powerful. It will save the receptive heart. But it must be proclaimed and defended (1 Peter 3:15).

An all-too-common sentiment in our culture is that oral debates are ineffectual. But, of course, such thinking is incorrect. As the Bible abundantly demonstrates, the time will never come—this side of eternity—when it will not be necessary for the saints to stand up and speak against the error that seeks to subvert men’s souls. Even as Jesus went “toe-to-toe” with Satan (Matthew 4), and Elijah squared off publicly with the prophets of Baal (1 Kings 18), so Christians must ever be willing to challenge the forces of falsehood that seek to turn people away from the living God.

Two months ago (April) on the campus of the University of North Alabama, a debate was conducted between A.P.’s Kyle Butt and University of North Carolina professor Bart Ehrman. Ehrman has been a popular and prolific writer in recent years. His writings constitute significant influences in undermining belief in God and Christianity for many young people. Thanks to our good friends at World Video Bible School, the debate was taped, edited, and now is available for purchase at our Web site or via our offices. The subject: Does the pain and suffering in the world indicate that the Christian God does not exist? Even if you have already viewed the debate, you will want to have a copy on hand to urge others to view it and see firsthand the superiority of the truth. You might want to play the DVD in Bible classes for teens and adults. Or you might want to have a viewing in your own home. Please aid us in our evangelistic efforts to point people to the truth about God, by ordering your copy and, perhaps, copies for others.
