  • Ratio Christi Featured on TBN-TV

    Rick Schenker, President of Ratio Christi, was interviewed on TBN-TV about the movie "God's Not Dead" and the university apologetics movement. UPDATE: August, 2014- "God's Not Dead" is now considered the #1 Indie Film of the Year, earning to date roughly $62 million worldwide.  

    Watch a full two (2) hour segment from March, 2014 dealing with the Gospel, apologetics, the upcoming movie, and a discussion on science and faith as broadcast on TBN. This is not your typical content you might expect on TBN and we were pleased to have Rice Broocks, author of the introductory text on apologetics God's Not Dead and designer of The God Test, interview Rick Schenker to discuss what God has been doing with Ratio Christi.

    We particularly recommended the last two segments; the first of which was a discussion on the relationship between faith and science (beginning at the 55:35 mark) with Dr. Ming Wang, who is a Harvard graduate, an eye surgeon, and research scientist. A former atheist, Dr. Wang’s story is one worth hearing, not to mention the excellent discussion on faith and science. The last segment (beginning at 01:31:30) features the interview with Rick Schenker.
