What People Are Saying

Sean McDowell
TrueU meets a tremendous need within the body of Christ for a first-class, relevant, and well-researched apologetics curriculum for upper high school and college students. Stephen Meyer is an engaging communicator who will help prepare your students for the intellectual challenges Christian students face in college.

Dr. Alex McFarland; President
In twenty-one years of working with youth and college ministries, rarely have I been as impressed as with Focus on the Family’s new series, TrueU. These DVDs, along with a comprehensive manual, are vital resources that are extremely well done. predict that they will become standard resources in many churches’ student ministries programs and in the homes of many Christian families. Every volume is filled with facts, stimulating data, and practical application, and all are firmly based on Scripture. I appreciate the topic selections, the production value, and the credible voices heard on the videos (including Stephen Meyer, Ph.D., who is one of our own adjunct faculty here at Southern Evangelical Seminary). Like all of the resources I have seen produced by Focus on the Family, these are faithful to Scripture and helpful to viewers, and they effectively point people to Jesus Christ. I highly recommend the entire TrueU series.

    MAKES YOU THINK

    In the DVD kit Does God Exist?: Building the Scientific Case, Professor Stephen Meyer discusses many topics that include- The Big Bang theory, faith and reason, DNA, Intelligent Design, The Return of the God Hypothesis, and The Moral Necessity of Theism.There are two DVD's with ten 30 minute lessons and a 64 page guide with Discussion questions.Professor Meyer and a classroom of college students discuss the topics and incorporate video clips to help explain the information. Dr. Meyer examines the evidence and provides the tools needed for students to defend their faith and make it their own. This is the first set of the True U series.



    My Thoughts-

    I felt that Dr. Meyer rambled on a bit and was to vague at times. I had to rewind the DVD to grasp some of the information presented. My mother watched the DVD with me and helped me understand what he was discussing. She said that the kit is appropriate for college bound students and would be a great tool to use in Sunday School or a Bible study group. The information presented allows the student to decide for themselves what is really true and they are not forced to make a decision about their faith.


    Disclaimer: I received the kit free from Tyndale Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review

    A great Discussion Starter

    Focus on the Family has come out with a wonderful little dvd set that focuses on making and argument for the Existence of God using Science.

    I received my set from Tyndale House for and honest review and received no compensation for my review.

    This set comes with two dvds and a little booklet.

    There are 10 lessons which would be about right for a high school or college level Sunday School class quarter. The little booklet has an overview of each lesson and then some questions to help facilitate discussion in the class. Throughout ar sprinkled quotes by scientists pertaining to the topics. The lessons are about 30 minutes long and cover such topics as DNA by Design and The Big Bang Cosmology.

    These lessons help the student to be able to defend their faith with scientific knowledge. This is really helpful especially when you are up against those that think that Faith and Science are exclusive of one another.

    I plan on using this for part of my daughters high school curriculm and will encourage my church to use a copy also.

    A great resource

    I really enjoyed watching the lectures by Dr. Stephen Meyer. He has a witty and somewhat engaging personality. The videos though are very much like college lectures and in my opinion are geared for young adults or maybe high school juniors and seniors. The sessions present basic philosophical arguments based on scientific data for the reasonableness of theism (and hopefully in particular Christianity). While Dr. Meyer does provide a great critique of a few objections to theism from other world views (the naturalistic or material worldview in particular), in this series he does not provide a steady way forward (though it is my understanding that there is a second series coming out in regards to the reliability of Scripture).

    The accompanying book does a great job of highlighting key concepts taught in the lecture. It also includes three follow up questions per section to use as discussion starters. The value of this resources is probably found in a group format. Groups can meet, review the DVD material, and follow up with discussion.

    This is a great resource but it doesn't contain a strong way forward (I suspect that is coming up in a second series). I would recommend it to student pastors and home school parents to use with high school seniors or young adults. In my opinion it isn't a great stand alone series, but is a great introduction to some of the arguments that students will face on secular school campus.

    As a blogger I received a complimentary review copy from Tyndale House Publishers through the Tyndale Blog Network program. There was no requirement to give it a positive review, just for the reviewer to call it like they see it.
