"Count on it, when kids get to college their faith will be viciously attacked. It is vital to give them rock solid reasons for belief early - while in junior high and high school." - Josh McDowell

In this video series, Josh McDowell declares overwhelming evidences for the Christian faith in easy to understand terms that will ground your young people in the reasons for faith. Designed as a foundational "Ready Defense", this series will equip your junior high and high school students with answers to tough questions about what they believe.

In this long-awaited series Josh brings your youth a simplified version of Evidence That Demands A Verdict through fascinating motion picture illustrations, animation, humorous skits, and easy to understand teaching. Each video session opens with a relevant dramatic vignette that sets up the lesson. Then Josh provides answers, insights, and evidence for the reasons we believe. The sessions conclude with a dramatic vignette or a music video. The entire series is a faith-grounding, fun-filled experience.

The sessions include:
Session 1: Know Why You Believe
Your youth will discover that the Christian faith is based upon objective fact, not subjective feelings, and that the Christian faith is an intelligent faith, not a blind faith. The content is made easy to follow with clay animation, graphics, and motion picture illustrations.
-- This session finishes with the music video for the song "Be The One" by Al Denson

Session 2: Defending The Faith
Can you "prove" Christianity? Here Josh uses on-screen illustrations to examine the proper method to prove Christianity beyond a reasonable doubt. The entire session builds confidence that there is solid evidence for our faith.

Session 3: The Uniqueness Of The Bible
Students will discover that the Bible is the most amazing book in the way it was written, unique in its circulation and translation. On-screen animation drives the points home in a factual and enjoyable fashion. Your students will gain a boldness to share their faith with others.

Session 4: The Reliability Of Scripture
Step-by-step, students learn how the Scriptures were preserved, insuring their accuracy. Fascinating illustrations will help them examine the number of available manuscripts, which gives further evidence of why the Bible can be trusted. Your youth will grow in their faith as they gain confidence that the Word of God is the most reliable document ever written.
-- This session finishes with the music video for "Seen And Not Heard" by Petra
