Citizens’ E-Courier – September 3, 2008

Truth Project Simulcast September 27

Dr. James Dobson calls it “one of the most exciting programs to come from this ministry in many years.”

Christian author and apologist Ravi Zacharias says, “The content of a project like this is the best gift you can give your children and yourself.”

They’re talking about The Truth Project – a DVD-based Christian worldview small group curriculum introduced by Focus on the Family in 2006.

It is worldview training that focuses first on personal transformation – on looking into the face of God, studying His nature and character, and discovering how He seeks to stamp His image on every aspect of our lives.

To date, this impactful, important curriculum could be obtained only by traveling to one of the Truth Project’s regional orientations – a full-day seminar that introduces the curriculum and prepares attendees to facilitate small group studies.

On September 27, Focus on the Family will hold its first ever live simulcast training event at churches throughout the nation.  And we encourage you to take part in this landmark event.

Recommended resource: The Bible, Voters & the 2008 Election

Confused by all the campaign rhetoric?

Last week we heard from the Democrats.  This week, the Republicans are in the national media spotlight.  Both parties, and all candidates, claim to identify with our values.

How does a Biblical voter cut though the flowery promises and create a framework by which to evaluate the opposing claims?  What is the Biblical basis for evaluating a presidential candidate’s agenda?

This new booklet by David Barton, The Bible, Voters & the 2008 Election, provides  simple, clear Scriptural answers to these questions – answers illustrated by historical examples and elucidated with current statistics.

Available through Wallbuilders’ online book store, this 64-page booklet is available for only $2.98!  To order a copy, click here.
