  • Courses to assist seekers in understanding the Christian faith
  • Courses to disciple and nurture new Christians
  • Courses to provide further education for Christians and facilitate growth towards maturity

PURCHASE THE BOOK:

Finding God When He Seems To Be Hiding“, examines the 12 most common questions and objections raised against Christianity. It provides detailed responses that move beyond the standard, glib answers that are often proposed, and addresses these issues with clarity and insight. It is an excellent book to give to seekers and sceptics, as well as a valuable resource for your own understanding. The book can also be used as a study book for Home Bible Study groups, with reflection questions at the end of each chapter.

You can purchase the book now from the SmartFaith shop.
