Course Description

The Problem of God online course is taught by a skeptic who became a Christian and then a pastor, all while exploring answers to the most difficult questions raised against Christianity. Mark Clark grew up in an atheistic home, and after his father's death, began a skeptical search for truth through exploring science, philosophy, and history, asking the big questions of life, and eventually finding answers in Christianity. In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God online course responds to the top ten questions people raise against God and Christianity.

Each session answers the specific challenge using a mix of theology, philosophy, and science on the one hand, while also using stories and anecdotes. It's apologetics for the rest of us, focused on both convincing the skeptic and informing the Christian.

By completing this course, you’ll gain:

  • A greater understanding of God and Christianity
  • A discussion of key challenges to Christianity – your own or those you encounter
  • Familiarity with the Bible’s answers to science, evil and suffering, hypocrisy, hell, sex, the existence of God, and more
  • Confidence in your growing knowledge through personalized review sessions, unit assessments, and award-winning memory building tools
