I’ve heard people say to be the student of just one book. The idea is to find an author or a few authors who you feel challenged by and try to master the message they teach, rather than chasing after every train of thought that becomes popular. There’s a lot to be said for that. However, that can also create a mental rut. Sometimes we need to purposefully take a stroll and see what others are putting out there. It keeps us fresh and challenged.
Today I came across this video called, Learn How To Do Apologetics in the Twenty-First Century with Ravi Zacharias. I recommend giving it a watch. The reason I like it is students are looking for meaning in life. Ravi’s teaching will help us think through this from a Christian perspective and churn up some questions we may not have considered since we were the age of our students. In this video he is speaking at Saddleback Church, where I serve in youth ministry.
