At a Campus Crusade for Christ retreat in spring of 2009, a group of Ohio University students decided to form a community to respond to intellectual attacks on the Christian faith. The resulting group, Christian Engineers and Scientists, discussed topics related to apologetics at weekly meetings. Past studies have covered the material presented in The Case for Faith, The Truth Project, The Case for a Creator, On Guard, the Screwtape Letters, Cold-Case Christianity, and others. The leaders of CES joined forces with Ratio Christi in fall of 2010, hoping to gain additional assistance in carrying out our vision of teaching Christians how to defend the faith.
Each year, Ratio Christi at Ohio University hosts several guest lecturers to start dialogue on campus about important apologetics-related issues. This year's events include Scott Klusendorf on September 25th and Dr. Chris Hook of the Mayo Clinic on October 2nd.
