Dr Craig ! Thank you so much for using your gifts to help other believers. In my background I was just taught to believe or not question anything. Thank you for showing people that we can explain why we have the truth and that there is plenty of proof for it.I pray Gods blessing on you and your family. Thanks for being such an encouragement! Your brother in Christ
Dear Dr. Craig, I am a believer in the “five fold” ministry of the church, as recorded in Ephesians 4:11. I have always thought of you in the work of “teacher”; not necessarily because of your profession, but because of your style. But when I read the question of the week “#715 Is It All Right to Be Gay?”, my first thought was “how loving!”. You truly stepped into the posture of “pastor” with the response you gave. It takes great courage to speak truthfully, but it takes courage and humility to “speak the truth in love”. You did more than answer the question, you answered the person, à la Colossians 4:6. Good job.
Hi Dr Craig, Greetings from Singapore! I have been an ardent follower of your apologetic and philosophical work for a few years now and I just want to convey my heartfelt gratitude for all that you do for the body of Christ. Your clear logical reasoning, solid animation videos on YouTube and solid arguments during debates are a real treasure for anyone and everyone who wants to seek the truth. Thank you once again and I wish you good health and blessings for many more years to come. Blessings,
Dr Craig and Reasonable Faith ministry have been a huge help to me. I didn't even know how to ask the questions I had in my faith journey - a friend suggested I borrow the copy. of Reasonable Faith the church library = mind blown. I had to renew the library-loan many times, because I could only get through a page or two before I had to stop and do R&D, read scripture, think long and hard before moving on (not that I'm saying "I got it all"!). This got me to the RF site, and to Defenders. ...which is faith-life affirming. Defenders has helped me understand just how solid a rock I'm standing on, has helped me mature in my thinking, and has inspired my thirst for more of God and knowledge about Him.
Hello Dr. Craig and Reasonable Faith Ministry team! I really just want to say a heartfelt thankyou for all the ways in which you have contributed to my confidence in the truth of my Christian confession, my understanding of Christian doctrine and God, and my personal relationship with Christ, and the other persons of our wonderful triune God! The first time I was exposed to Dr. Craig's insights, was in The Case for a Creator, and The Case for Christ, by Lee Strobel. At that time I was a high school student who firmly believed in the Gospel intellectually, and from personal experience, but lacked the wherewithal to evaluate the claims of scientific naturalism. Looking back at that point in my life, I would say that I was a carnal Christian, an infant who was learning how to distinguish right from wrong and allow the grace of God to conquer my frequent temptations. I can say that apologetics, and some of your specific contributions to the field, prevented me in the long run from becoming consumed by sin and walking away from God, rather than limping and falling towards him until I was at last secure in my faith, and noticeably born again. You see, I just couldn't suppress the truth, which I deeply believed, anymore. Nor could I go from His Spirit or flee from His presence. Something had to give. It would either be my resistance and pride, or my sanity. Thankfully, I responded to his gracious call and surrendered my life as a 20 year old, while on a short term missions trip during a gap-semester. The most significant factors in my journey of sanctification have been reading the Word, prayer and engaging in fellowship with other believers, even those who I've never met in your Defenders classes. How your work has helped to make me unashamed of the work of our Saviour and Lord Jesus! After moving from Canada to Denmark to be with my wife, I read On Guard, and then Reasonable Faith. I am just about to start reading your academic book on the Atonement, and am really looking forward to your new book as well. I have listened to the last one and a half defenders series over the last year as well, and really appreciate that class! Overall, you have helped to ignite a passion for biblical theology and apologetics, and a keen interest in philosophy. I would also say that you have strongly influenced my decision to go into "full-time Christian service," not as a medical doctor, or musician as I had previously imagined, but as a pastor-teacher-theologian-musician of some sort! As they say in Danish, "tusind tak," equivalent to the British "thanks a million"! I appreciate your work, and also the time you have taken to read this, if you have found the time to do so in your productive and (likely) full schedule. May the Lord bless you and keep you, your family, and your ministry Dr. Craig! You have certainly been a blessing to me and have helped keep me on the narrow path to eternity with God! Sincerely,
