My talk at Valley Bible Fellowship - Las Vegas this last Sunday has been recorded and is available for download:
"Apologetics: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why'"
(April 6, 2014)
This is a discussion about what apologetics is and the importance it has for the Christian life. I offer my own testimony here as well as how scholarship has influenced apologetics for the academic and popular culture.

What people may not appreciate is that the recent finding of gravitational waves from the Planck era spells the end of "brane" cosmology. This is what I wrote in my second edition of my Master's Thesis on this subject back in 2010:
"Though observational evidence is currently pending, hopefuls are expecting that within the next year or so we shall discover that there are no (or not a significant amount of) gravitational waves. This discovery (or lack thereof) will either confirm or deny whether this theory gathers any ground or if the popular Inflationary Universe Model retains the upper hand" ("Theism and Contemporary Cosmology", pp. 98-99).
Here is a "spirited" discussion from William Lane Craig on this issue.

Okay, a topic and date has been set for my upcoming talk with the Fellowship of College Grads - UNLV. It will be on April 25th (Friday) in the afternoon (time is yet to be determined). The topic will be "The Meaning of Life as a Philosophical Tool for Evangelism." I look forward to it!
