Why Believe?

CE 2023

Welcome to Christian Education @ The Crossing


Where: Room 202

Time: Sundays, 11:15am - 12:15pm

If you're interested in joining, please sign up below!


For the rest of this year, we will be going through a book called Why Believe by Neil Shenvi.

"For centuries, skeptics have disputed the claims of Christianity―such as belief in an eternal God and the resurrection of Jesus Christ―arguing that they simply cannot be accepted by reasonable individuals. Furthermore, efforts to demonstrate the evidence and rational basis for Christianity through apologetics are often deemed too simplistic to be taken seriously in intellectual circles."

Each week, we will be going over the homework assignments, review the chapter contents, and then participate in a group discussion / activity.


If you need a copy of the book, you may purchase it by yourself here or purchase the book in person for $10.  An audiobook is also available for those who prefer listening!

6/25/2023 - Break for July

I hope you all found the first part of CE Why Believe? to be helpful in better understanding why you believe what you believe and hopefully having more spiritual conversations.

We will be on break for the month of July and starting back the first Sunday of August (8/6/2023) August 13, 2023

Please have Chapter 4 read and homework complete when we resume class in August. If you have not read Chapters 1, 2 and 3 yet or if you are joining us for the first time, please use the month of July to catch up! Slides and homework can be found below. If you would like a book, please reach out to me or Kevin Zhang.

We are also collecting anonymous feedback for how things went in the month of June. Your feedback will help shape future sessions.

6/11/2023 - Week 1

Thank you for attending today's first CE class. We'll be using this google group as the main form of communicating to the class.
