Seven local churches across four denominations, representing more than 1000 people in the Northern Illawarra are working together to present a series of public events that tackle some of the big questions that people commonly have about the Christian faith.
The ten part series called ‘Towards Belief’ has been created in response to research conducted across Australia by McCrindle, one of the country’s leading market research companies.
Producers, Olive Tree Media, analysed that research and set about talking with over 30 of the world’s leading Christian scientists, academics and philosophers, to grapple with the 10 most common issues Australians have regarding faith, including suffering, its relationship with science, and abuse within the church.
From this, they created the series of videos called ‘Towards Belief”.
Olive Tree media spokesman and presenter Karl Faase says Towards Belief deals with ‘belief blockers’. “We talk with some of the best Christian minds / thinkers across the globe,” says Karl, “to give those with serious philosophical questions responses that have both academic rigour and accessible information.”
