“Residents of the Charlotte and surrounding areas may not realize that one of the premier apologetics conferences is practically in their back yard,” Wildmon said of this weekend’s event. “Southern Evangelical Seminary’s National Conference on Christian Apologetics will offer the timely theme of ‘Pursuing a Faith That Thinks.’ Attendees are sure to come away with a much better understanding of how to give a reasonable defense of the Christian faith. We’re honored that this excellent conference will also be the site of the debut of American Family Studios’ new documentary, ‘The God Who Speaks.’ The conference is a must-attend event for Christians who want their faith to shine bright in a dark world.”

The God Who Speaks” is a powerful feature-length documentary that explores the evidence of the Bible’s inspiration and authority through some of the most highly respected voices within evangelicalism.
