Review

TrueU’s Does God Exist? content is very well done with great production value. It fills a void and makes me want to watch the rest of the series titles. Our oldest daughter’s fiancé is getting his clinical doctorate and has experienced a great deal of opposition throughout his education because of his faith (illustrating the reality of the academic world elitists towards Christianity). (Joel Pilcher; Vice President of Communications, Open Doors USA)

TrueU meets a tremendous need within the body of Christ for a first-class, relevant, and well-researched apologetics curriculum for upper high school and college students. Stephen Meyer is an engaging communicator who will help prepare your students for the intellectual challenges Christian students face in college. (Sean McDowell, teacher, speaker, and author)

Too many students are entering college with faith in God but leaving with that faith seriously damaged, often destroyed. TrueU deals with this issue head-on and provides the certainty that kids need to not only survive but flourish on the university campus. (Chuck Klein; Director, Campus Alliance)

TrueU’s Does God Exist? is an excellent tool for youth pastors and leaders who are striving to equip students for the philosophical onslaught they face in their schools. Dr. Stephen Meyer presents a compelling case for the reasonableness of our Christian faith while making very complex topics understandable. I highly recommend it for college students, college-bound high school seniors, and their parents. (Bob Long; Director of Student Ministries, Converge Worldwide Converge MidAmerica)

Here’s an excellent, timely, and compelling resource that will bolster the faith of students and prepare them to defend their beliefs against challenges that may arise in school and beyond. I highly recommend this first-rate program! (Lee Strobel, author)

In twenty-one years of working with youth and college ministries, rarely have I been as impressed as with Focus on the Family’s new series, TrueU. These DVDs, along with a comprehensive manual, are vital resources that are extremely well done. predict that they will become standard resources in many churches’ student ministries programs and in the homes of many Christian families. Every volume is filled with facts, stimulating data, and practical application, and all are firmly based on Scripture. I appreciate the topic selections, the production value, and the credible voices heard on the videos (including Stephen Meyer, Ph.D., who is one of our own adjunct faculty here at Southern Evangelical Seminary). Like all of the resources I have seen produced by Focus on the Family, these are faithful to Scripture and helpful to viewers, and they effectively point people to Jesus Christ. I highly recommend the entire TrueU series. (Dr. Alex McFarland; President, Southern Evangelical Seminary)

If you are familiar with The Truth Project, you will love TrueU, which is targeted at high school students who are preparing to enter universities and at students already in those schools. This series of 25-minute lessons will equip students as they confront a collegiate environment and professors who will seek to demean and destroy their Christian faith. TrueU will help Christian youth workers and parents to build into their students’ hearts and minds so those students will have a confident faith and be able to stand firm and share their faith at this crucial time in their lives. I believe this tool can make a significant difference for our students. (Paul Fleischmann; President, National Network of Youth Ministries)

I’ve spent over 17 years working with students. One of the toughest challenges was finding good curriculum. Most of the stuff out there is either too lame and cheesy or too shallow―nothing you could use with students without reservation. True U has finally solved the problem. Their DVD curriculum is deep, equipping students with a sophisticated but accessible defense of the faith. But it’s also pretty cool, produced in a way that won’t have you thinking, “there’s another tacky Christian product.” Seriously, this video curriculum needs to be shown in Christian homes, youth groups and schools across the nation, if we’re going to adequately train up a new generation of Christ followers. (Brett Kunkle; Student Impact Director, Stand to Reason)

In an era when deep Biblical teaching seems to be lacking, TrueU is proving to be an excellent resource to provide high school students with a depth that they not only need, but are hungry for. Our ministries would do well to equip teenagers with such a firm foundation for their faith as is provided in the TrueU video series. (Kevin White; Director of 24-7 Ministries, the youth ministry of Awana)

From the Back Cover

“Do you really believe that what you believe is really real?” ―Dr. Del Tackett

Does God exist?

In TrueU: Does God Exist? Dr. Stephen Meyer plays a sort of “philosophical survival” game pitting four worldviews against one another in the quest to decide which one gives the best answers. Dr. Meyer helps you examine the evidence and provides the tools needed to defend your faith and make it your own.
Includes two DVDs, each with five 30-minute lessons, and a discussion guide. additional discussion guides also sold separately.

Format: Paperback
One of the high school experiences that is permanently etched on my mind is the teacher who constantly tortured me because I was a Christian. At first I really didn't realize why she was picking on me. I just knew that she really seemed to make a point of making cutting remarks and trying to find ways to embarass me. After she called a practice for a time when I normally had church and I told her that I would have to miss that practice, she called me a very inappropriate name. I never said anything about it to anyone. I lived in the day when teachers were always right.

What a difference it would have made if I had the advantage of TrueU during that time. It is a confidence and knowledge that I want my own boys to have as they go out into the work/college/friend world.

This series includes 2 DVD's with ten thirty minute sessions. The sessions included are: Faith and Reason, The Big Bang theory, DNA, Intelligent Design, The Return of the God Hypothesis, and The Moral Necessity of Theism. If you have ever watched the "Drive Thru History" series, you will recognize Dave Stotts as one of the series narrators!

I love the way Dr. Meyers presents the creationism view to his students. He allows them to asks the questions. Through their discussions he shows them how creationism is the most perfect worldview.

I am so excited to use this in our homeschool Bible study this fall and then share this with our church youth group.

I received this series free from Tyndale Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program in exchange for a honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commision's 16 CFR, Part 255.

"Do you really believe that what you believe is really real?"

In the DVD set, Does God Exist?, Dr. Stephen Meyer* attempts to answer the question, "What is the prime reality?". This boils down to "What's the thing from which everything else comes?". He takes a classroom (of what appear to be college students) through multiple competing hypotheses. Looking at evidence from the natural world, he makes his case for which of the four worldviews (deism, theism, pantheism, and materialism) provides the best explanation.

The set contains two DVDs, with ten thirty minute lessons. These include Faith and Reason, The Big Bang Cosmology Parts 1-3, DNA by Design Parts 1-3, The Return of the God Hypothesis, and The Moral Necessity of Theism Parts 1-2. There is also a nicely done booklet included, which contains an overview for each session, highlights from the lesson, and discussion questions that would actually lead to discussion. For example, "Why is it important to think of the Big Bang as an 'effect' of the universe rather than the 'cause' of the universe?", "What is meant by "self-organization", and why does this theory fail to account for the arrangement of information in DNA?", and "Why is it so difficult to live as a moral relativist- to deny the existence of any objective moral standard?".

Dr. Meyers respects his student's intelligence, encouraging them to look at the objectives to his arguments and come to their own conclusions. He makes his case for Intelligent Design and asks them to decide if his evidence is persuasive. He doesn't belittle other theories and scientists, but rather explains their viewpoints and then shares why he does not believe the evidence backs them up.

Recently I had the opportunity to review the DVD Does God Exist? Kit: Building the Scientific Case, produced by Focus on the Family, and featuring Dr. Stephen Meyer. I'm so glad that I did! There are two DVD's with ten 30-minute lessons (plus a bonus extra: The Toughest Test in College), along with a 64-page color booklet with discussion questions. Topics discussed are: Faith and Reason, The Big Bang theory, DNA, Intelligent Design, The Return of the God Hypothesis, and The Moral Necessity of Theism.

For decades now, our society has been embracing intellectualism and the climate is growing increasingly hostile to faith. This series is geared toward young people, to help answer questions (that we all have) and then be able to defend their faith. It is perfect for those who are college-bound, but it is also perfect for those who don't go to college. It can be taught in a home-school environment, in youth groups or small groups, or even simply as family viewing and learning together. It is not a finished set. There are two additional kits planned for the future. It is a wonderful resource to have and to use.

This kit was provided to me for review by Tyndale House Publishers.

I come from a science-heavy education and a love of philosophy, so this DVD series was mind-blowing to me. I am a newly affirmed Christian who is coming back to my faith after a 24 year struggle with the emptiness of the modern thought. Dr. Stephen Meyer is a brilliant thinker and presents logic in a way that leaves very little room for rebuttal. The series takes place with Dr. Meyer speaking to young college students who will be entering a secular University. The main thrust is to help equip these students with the factual scientific basis for their Theistic worldviews because they will most certainly be challenged as they take their college degrees.

Dr. Meyer establishes a rock solid case for the presence and ongoing involvement of God in our world. He showcases the talking points used by "big minds" in the opposition to Theism and deftly exposes the circular reasoning and fallacies that are the backbone of the Atheist argument. The great thing is that he makes a point to fully acknowledge Darwin's contribution the validity of micro-evolution and biological adaptation, which is usually the first target for the Neo-Darwinist if/when they challenge a proponent of Intelligent Design to a debate.

I will say that he speaks somewhat quickly and offers his discussions at a college level which will challenge some to listen and absorb effectively. If you find that this is the case be prepared with your remote and your computer so you can pause to look things up if you need to. I would encourage everyone to watch it multiple times anyway, and include your kids, This will help to solidify they vast about of information the Dr. Meyer lays out here.
