Presentations

Shroud lectures & slides:
  • The Incredible Shroud of Turin: Where Science Touches Faith!  (30-90 minutes depending on time allotted, followed by time for questions from the audience)  This intriguing presentation delivers a fascinating overview concerning the unique characteristics of the image on the cloth, discoveries scientists have made, the likely historical trail the Shroud took since the first century, and a brief explanation why certain texts in the New Testament are probably veiled references to the Shroud. 
  • Are There Veiled References to the Shroud In the New Testament?  (45 minutes)  If the Shroud is genuine, why does the Bible fail to mention its startling image?  Due to persecution and the desire to safeguard the Shroud, we should not be surprised that any such reference during the early Church would have been veiled or cryptic.  
Other apologetic talks & slides: 
  • I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be An Atheist! 
    (30-60 min. depending on time available)  An intriguing and rational presentation that makes a convincing case for God's existence!  All talks are supplemented with true stories and PowerPoint slides
  • The Fingerprint of the Messiah!  (30 min.) 
    Did Jesus—and Jesus alone—match the identity of the anticipated Jewish Messiah?
  • Jesus Among Other Gods?  (30 min.) 
    We live in a time when you can believe anything, as long as you do not claim it to be true.  In the name of "tolerance," our postmodern culture embraces everything from New Age spirituality to Chrislam, to Atheism. Aren't all religions fundamentally the same?  After all, why should one believe that Jesus is "the way, the truth, and the life?" (John 14:6) 
  • Why Value the Bible in the 21st Century?  (30 min.) 
    Our culture no longer values the Bible as it once did, and we are witnessing the sad consequences.  Where should we look to find meaning for life and our very existence?  Is there evidence that this book is more than a mere product of ancient mortals?
