Certain challenges to your Christian convictions come up with regularity. The ones you fear the most will be the ones that demand the most courage, and you may not feel up to the task. So make your job easier by taking the edge off the fear. Develop a good answer to the issue—one you can deliver in a tactically sound way (with a thoughtful opening question, for example)—and your courage will soar. You won’t fear the test because you’ll know the answers in advance.

One way we at STR have worked to make these challenges easier to address is through the Q&A videos on our blog. Each one is a short vignette—a brief but thoughtful reflection by Greg—providing useful information to encourage you in your role as an ambassador. We’ve collected the best of them on this DVD.
Nearly two thousand years ago, on a single weekend in the Jewish month of Nisan, two profound miracles occurred, the effects of which have reverberated throughout human history.  The first miracle no one saw, because it couldn't be seen except by God Himself.  The second miracle only a few saw, but multitudes actually experienced.

This was the week of Jesus' passion, the occasion of His miraculous death and resurrection.  If you've ever pondered the question of why Jesus came in the first place, this important new presentation will help elucidate the mystery, that the Son of God was "delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification."
This presentation will open your eyes to the reality of the secular college campus and its aggressive assault on the faith of our students. In addition, Brett will examine recent data suggesting our students are ill-equipped for such challenges and then discuss what we can do about it.
Why I Am a Christian
DVD Video: $9.95
In this presentation, Greg narrates the Christian story—the Christian view of reality, or world view—in a way that is a refreshing in its simplicity and clarity. Greg describes the basic concepts that form the cornerstones of all world views, and the five simple words needed to outline the plot of the Christian account of reality. In this presentation, Brett examines the most common reasons Christians give for why they embrace Christianity, and then examines the primary reason why we ought to embrace Christianity: because Christianity is true. He clarifies this controversial claim and shows how the truth of religious claims must be grounded in reality. Naturally, such a claim is followed by questions of how we can know Christianity is true, so Brett sets out a cumulative case approach that takes into account the wealth of evidence for the Christian worldview. In assessing numerous evolutionary arguments for universal common descent, Tim finds that each falls into one of three categories: 1) exaggerated extrapolations, or the mistaken projection that if given enough time, the same processes that produce evidence of microevolution will produce macroevolution, 2) egregious errors, or evidence that has been shown to be false and outdated, and 3) equivocal evidence, or evidence that could just as easily be interpreted as proof of intelligent design.

Exaggerated extrapolations fail to provide the right kind of evidence, and egregious errors fail to provide the kind of evidence that is right. With these out of the way, the evolutionist is left with only equivocal evidence to make his case. And as Tim further explains, an intelligent designer is a better scientific explanation of both the irreducible complexity we see in certain biological features and the specified complexity we find in the diversity of life.
The Star of Bethlehem
DVD Video: $12.95
Most Christians are ill-equipped to handle themselves in discussions with Jehovah's Witnesses. JW's seem to know their stuff while most Christians don't. Most Christians know what they believe, but don't know why they believe it. This is where this two-part series comes in; it answers the "why." Watch and listen as Tim Barnett graciously and respectfully walks through the reasons for believing that Jesus is Jehovah! "As a Christian, I believe that Jesus is the only way for me, but I can't say He is the way for others."

Statements like this have become increasingly common among Christians of all stripes. In both confessing Christ and retreating from the Gospel at the same time, these ambivalent confessions betray a deeply confused understanding of the Christian message.

In this talk, Greg exposes the error behind this relativistic religion, identifying and repudiating the three corrosive elements that prompt such confused confessions: theological uncertainty, religious pluralism, and Christian inclusivism.
For centuries, skeptics and seekers alike have pondered the star of Bethlehem. The Bible describes unusual or even impossible astronomical events at Christ's birth. Was it a miracle or mere myth? This compelling DVD--from producer Stephen McEveety ("The Passion of the Christ")--examines Scripture, ancient writings, indisputable astronomical facts and more. Learn nine specific features of the star recorded in the Gospel of Matthew and how it established a date for Jesus' birth and death.
Jesus: Fact or Fiction
DVD Video: $14.98
Few issues are riding the cultural wave as high as the question of same-sex marriage. Homosexual partners continue to vie for legitimacy by having their relationships sanctioned with the same privileges and protections afforded their heterosexual counterparts. But when challenged to defend the traditional view of marriage, too many Christians have little more to offer than "because the Bible tells me so." In this timely session, Greg presents several effective arguments in defense of one of the most embattled institutions of our time. Lee Strobel, from the foreward of Tactics:
Greg was simply so engaging and so effecting in poking holes in [New Age author Deepak] Chopra’s worldview that I had to keep the cameras running. Time after time, Greg was able to expose the faulty thinking underlying Chopra’s amorphous theology and correct his inaccurate claims about Jesus and the Bible. Before I knew it, we had consumed the entire hour of the show. Chopra—who was accustomed to spouting his opinions unchallenged on television and radio—was left thoroughly defeated and deflated.
Now more than ever people are asking hard questions about Christianity: Did Jesus really rise from the dead? Are the biblical accounts trustworthy?

Explore the evidence with experts Lee Strobel, Ravi Zacharias, Darrell Bock, William Dembski, Josh McDowell, and others. Together they tackle dozens of theological difficulties posed by skeptics--and offer compelling reasons for confident faith along with believers' testimonies. This DVD includes the famous Jesus film, starring Brian Deacon as Jesus and more than 4½ hours of special features.

This extraordinary documentary will be a focal point in the escalating debate between evolution and design.
Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of life and our universe. In The Case for a Creator DVD, Strobel reexamines the theories that once led him away from God. 

Highlighted by spectacular computer animation, The Case for a Creator DVD is a remarkable film in which you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness.
This remarkable film features interviews with ten leading Biblical scholars from North America and England, including J.P. Moreland, William Lane Craig, and Gary Habermas, cutting-edge apologetics, and a compelling original music score.

Watch this film in a small group environment to begin discussion about Jesus, by yourself to gain a deeper understanding of the case for the historical Jesus, or provide it as a gift to someone that might not otherwise expose themselves to the compelling evidence in the case for Christ.

Bonus interviews are also included as special features.
In The Case for Faith journalist Lee Strobel investigates two of the most emotional objections to Christianity, barriers to faith confronted by believers and skeptics alike: Why is Jesus the only way to God? And how could a loving God exist if there is evil and suffering in the world?

Based on Strobel’s Gold Medallion-winning book of the same name, the film includes interviews with scholars, theologians, and ministry leaders including Joni Eareckson Tada, N.T. Wright, Ben Witherington, Rick Warren, and Greg Koukl. Each reaches beyond intellectual arguments to touch the depths of the human heart.

The Case for Faith is a powerful biblical apologetic for anyone who has ever experienced doubt or uncertainty about God. It is an honest message of hope and spiritual clarity in a world where faith is tested on a daily basis.
Responding to Relativism
DVD Video: $19.95
Darwin’s Dilemma explores the Cambrian explosion and the scientific controversy that still surrounds it. Where are the missing transitional forms that Darwin’s theory requires? Can any undirected evolutionary process explain the origin of animals?

Filmed on four continents, this fascinating documentary examines some of the most important fossil discoveries ever made, and with them, a mystery deeper than Darwin ever imagined. The Cambrian explosion was actually an explosion of biological information: assembly instructions in DNA and embryonic blueprints that directed the development of the first complex animals--information that points unmistakably to foresight, purpose and intelligent design.
Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before.

Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly's life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they designed by an intelligent cause?
This small-group resource focuses on the death of truth in contemporary society. It prepares you to respond in a gracious yet effective manner.

Greg Koukl and Frank Beckwith are featured responding to live clips of students on college campuses challenging the notion that truth can be known. They offer cogent defenses for the concept of absolute truth against the fallacy of moral relativism.

A leader's manual in PDF and student worksheets are included in order to make your small group training simple and effective.
Does God Exist?: A Debate
DVD Video: $19.95
In front of an overflow crowd and a global internet audience, William Lane Craig and Christopher Hitchens debated the origin and design of the universe, the implications of human morality, the deity of Jesus, and the validity of Christ's resurrection. It was a compelling clash of worldviews and an examination of the major arguments for and against Christianity and atheism.

This two-DVD set captures every moment of the debate (documented by 10 cameras). Bonus features include the pre-debate press conference, a question-and-answer session, and interviews with Hitchens and Craig.

Photographed in North America, Peru, England, Greenland and Antarctica, the film combines stunning images and computer animation with cutting-edge research and an original musical score to celebrate birds and their incomparable ability to live in the skies. In Flight, the ingenuity of a bird's behavior and biology showcase unmistakable evidence for design, purpose, and plan.

Pastor and author Timothy Keller meets with a group of skeptics over six sessions to debate their doubts and questions about Christianity. Using literature, philosophy, real-life experiences and constant reference to the Bible, Keller explains how the belief in a Christian God is a sound and rational one. Filmed live and unscripted as Keller interacts with the group, this curriculum models the way in which Christians can address the six most common questions from skeptics. The companion discussion guide (sold separately) also provides additional resources for Christians to meet with their own group.

Session Topics Include:

1. Isn't the Bible a myth?
2. How can you say there is only one way to God?
3. What gives you the right to tell me how to live my life?
4. Why does God allow suffering?
5. Why is the Church responsible for so much injustice?
6. How can God send good people to Hell?
In 1999, Illustra Media began a project that would span more than nine years, four continents, and thousands of hours of research, writing, editing, computer animation, and location photography. The objective was to create a documentary trilogy that would present the scientific case for intelligent design.

• Unlocking the Mystery of Life (released in 2002) revealed compelling evidence for design at the level of molecules and cells.
• The Privileged Planet (2004) explored the depths of the cosmos in a memorable search for purpose in the universe.
• Darwin's Dilemma (2009) examined the Cambrian explosion of life, one of the most remarkable events in the history of our planet.

These critically-acclaimed documentaries were broadcast on PBS and translated into more than 20 languages. They have inspired and educated millions and fueled an international debate on the origin of life.

The intellectual and moral challenges facing our young people are immense. It's time for the church to step up the training and discipleship of our students.

Specifically tailored for students, this conference features a lineup of speakers who not only know their stuff, but can also make the content accessible to young minds. These video sessions will be an invaluable tool in effectively equipping students to stand for the truth of the Gospel.
