And You. . .
Conversations of Consequence. At your level. This is a show dedicated to providing believers and skeptics with the evidence for the Christian worldview, introducing 'Truth' with a capital T, and leading people to the person of Jesus Christ. Learn more about Ratio Christi, a campus apologetics alliance.
The 90-minute show will consist of three, 30-minute episodes, often with a common theme. We want the show to appeal to a wide audience: from parents, children, and lay audience, to high school and college students, to university professors and other scholars. While each of the three episodes will be geared to a particular audience, they are meant to be one unified show of great content.
Block A: Answers Matter (Mondays 7:00pm - 7:30pm EST on Trinity Channel)
Introductory Level Content: For families, parents, children (junior high students and below), and everyone with a budding interest in apologetics, as well as people who don't know what 'apologetics' is.
Block B: Evidence Matters (Mondays 7:30pm - 8:00pm EST on Trinity Channel)
Intermediate Level Content: A strong resource for college and high school students, pastors, apologists, and lay leaders.
Block C: Scholarly Matters (Mondays 8:00pm - 8:30pm EST on Trinity Channel)
Advanced Level Content: Taking it to another level and digging deeper into the issues. Geared toward professors, faculty, graduate students, and serious students of apologetics and 'Truth.'
