July 12, 2021

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An exciting new television program from Southern Evangelical Seminary (SES, has arrived. “Why Do You Believe?” began airing on NRB-TV on July 7 at 10 p.m. ET—and it will continue to air weekly on NRB-TV on Wednesday evenings at 10:00 p.m. ET.

Says Dr. Richard G. Howe—Provost, Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics, and Norman L. Geisler chair of Christian Apologetics at SES—“Our program addresses an issue that is profound for all of us: Why should anyone believe the Christian worldview is actually true? We know that Christians are called to combat false ideas that stand in the way of the Gospel (2 Cor. 10:5; 1 Peter 3:15), but how do we evangelize the lost and equip the saints in a post-Christian and even hostile society?” Dr. Howe adds, “Are you ready to do so?”

Dr. Howe serves as host of the “Why Do You Believe?” one-minute radio feature that airs nationwide on numerous stations. The first television episode of “Why Do You Believe?” explained why today’s times are much more like those of first-century Christianity than last-century Christianity—and that our paradigm must change as a result.
