  • Focus on the Family's TrueU mentions Ratio Christi

    TrueU's article titled "The Three Columns of the Christian Apologetics Movement" (referenencing Greg Koukl's article) describes Ratio Christi as 

    Ratio Christi as a movement that strategically connects “second-column speakers and organizations [including curriculum like TrueU] to third-column groups on campuses and in churches around the country.”  There is no other organization with a university-focus that has this comprehensive cooperative apologetic outcome in view, and TrueU is one of the best curricular partners of Ratio Christi.  Greg Koukl understands this and thus lists Ratio Christi and Stephen Meyer (best accessed through TrueU) as strategic partners in Christian apologetics today.

  • RC Mentioned in Billy Graham Magazine

    In the unexpected providence of God, Ratio Christi was mentioned this month [May 2011] in one of Christianity’s most widely circulated publications. Decision Magazine, published by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, interviewed three experts in missions and evangelism.  One of the questions asked of these experts was
     
    Question:  What exciting trends are you seeing in missions and evangelism?
     
    Answer:  One thing we are seeing is a movement called Ratio Christi, which is an apologetics ministry on campuses across the country, from Ohio State to the West Coast. It’s an apologetics approach to defending the faith in an atheistic culture on secular campuses. 
     
    President of Ratio Christi, Rick Schenker said, “Can you see the hand of God at work here?  Ratio Christi is a very new organization, we have grown by 300% in just the last 90 days, and now we have been mentioned in one of the most influential magazines in Christianity. It ist extremely exciting to see the sovereign hand of God on a movement that we hope will participate in ushering in the ‘age of the apologist.’” 
     
    The Ratio Christi staff would like to say thank you to the staff of Decision Magazine, and to Dr. Wayne Detzler, Dean at Southern Evangelical Seminary, for mentioning Ratio Christi.  To read the entire Decision Magazine article click here. (Digital copy—click on PREVIEW)

So many people are training themselves in apologetics through their own research or by attending universities like Biola or Southern Evangelical Seminary for apologetics degrees. They do this on the side because they love it, not yet knowing how the degree will be used.

    If you’re one of these people, you should look into Ratio Christi, a fairly new apologetics organization that is seeking to change the intellectual atmosphere at universities by bringing Christianity into public, academic discussion. Their goal is to start on-campus apologetics clubs at 500 universities in the next five years. This is where you come in--because it’s also Ratio Christi’s goal to connect each of these clubs with a person who has been trained in apologetics (but who probably has a different day job) to act as chapter director.

    Ratio Christi helps each chapter organize one or two campus-wide events a year by connecting them with speakers and debaters like William Lane Craig and Gary Habermas, helping them find the funding, etc. But after the event has come and gone, the lay apologist is still there to lead discussions and interact with the Christians, skeptics, atheists, and seekers who may never have...

    The event, hosted by Ratio Christi Apologetics and Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, was intended to answer some tough questions about people who claim to have had an out-of-body experience while they were proclaimed clinically dead.
