Throughout my years of teaching and preaching, I have devoted particular attention to apologetics, especially the case for Christ; developing material to help teachers of adult Bible classes; and the principle and practice of undenominational Christianity. The lesson series listed below were developed from studies and presentations regarding those themes.
Each series can be adapted for a weekend seminar, Vacation Bible School or other weeknight series, retreat, or similar setting. All are designed to help believers "in the pew" be better equipped to meet some of the challenges of living the Christian faith in the 21st century. Specific lesson subjects can be included or omitted to fit different scheduling formats.
The series are listed alphabetically by title.

A Case for God in Person
Every component of the evidence for the traditional view of Jesus as Lord and Christ has been challenged, including the veracity of the Gospels, their claims that Jesus was divine, did miracles, and was raised from the dead. This lesson series — the main parts of which can be presented as series in their own right — is designed to help believers be better prepared to give an answer by providing an overview of the evidence that Jesus was Lord and Christ.
Basic Bible Study for Teachers
Can We Trust the Gospels?
Were the Gospels written too long after Jesus lived to be accurate? Does the fact that our earliest manuscript copies of the Gospels were not made until 200 to 300 years after the events mean that we cannot trust the accuracy of what we have received? Did the writers invent a different Jesus than the man from Nazareth who walked the roads of Galilee and Judea? Topics include:
Among all religions, Christianity is unique in claiming that its founder was raised from the dead. This is no mere incidental teaching, a part of what constitutes Christian doctrine. Paul taught that Jesus’ resurrection validated his ministry, is the basis for justification, and is the ground of ultimate hope. He also argued that, if Jesus was not raised, Christians have been misrepresenting God, are presenting an empty message, have a futile faith, and are not forgiven. This course briefly introduces the reasons we have for credibly believing in the reality of the resurrection.
