Defending Truth and Christianity at the University
While the Christian church has been battling false ideas since its inception 2000 years ago, the reality has become even more apparent in our current global age of information overdose, the myriad of ideas, religious pluralism and the cults.
Apologetics is now more important than ever.
MAKING AN IMPACT
Apologetics + Evangelism
Ratio Christi (Latin for ‘The Reason of Christ’) is a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ, and to engage with the prevalent ideas in the culture around them.
Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student and faculty-led apologetics clubs at universities around the world.
“I don’t know of one single ministry doing what Ratio Christi is doing.”
– Dr. JP Moreland
