“How do I share Christ with someone who is an agnostic?” a college student asked after a talk I gave last month at a church in Oklahoma.

Brittni's Story: When All You Know Gets Put to the Test

Dear Friend, Ideas have consequences. What we believe about God and the world is ultimately manifested in our day-to-day life.
