MAKE ROOM FOR THOUGHT: Is faith unreasonable?

Students in Leiden here in The Netherlands run a week with talks about the meaning of life.

So they asked me to prepare a talk about the question of faith in relation to reason. My talk was under the general topic of MAKE ROOM FOR THOUGHT. Here then is a summary of my talk in 5 minutes.

We all have the same starting point: we believe something about reality. The real question then is: which view makes more sense? Would like to hear what you think. leave a comment or ask a question. Stay safe!

Προσευχή και τα καλά νέα – Β’ Θεσσαλονικής 3,1-2

Η ομιλία είναι στα Ελληνικά (This talk is in the Greek language)

Samuel Zwemmer, a missionary statesman, once said that “the history of missions is the history of answered prayers.” In this talk, we draw three lessons from 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2.

The apostel Paul is asking prayer for the advancement of the good news, for receptivity and protection. This talk is in Greek and was delivered at the Greek Evangelical Church in Thessaloniki.
