Weekly Round-Up: Conning African Christians, Free Apologetics Audio, Frame on Evil, and Budziszewski on Nihilism

Here's this week's round-up:

1) Kevin Kadipo, "Preying on the prayerful" in Eastern Standard newspaper (Kenya). Another example of how Africans are conned out of their money and possessions.

2) Rob Bowman, "Introduction to Apologetics Course" on the Parchment and Pen blog. I mentioned this course when it was originally offered, but now the folks at Reclaiming the Mind Ministries are making the audio of the entire course free to download. If you weren't able to be a part of the class, then don't miss listening to this excellent evangelical scholar teach about defending our faith. And make sure to sign-up for Bowman's next class: Christian Apologetic Methods.

3) Andy Naselli, "Interview with John Frame on the Problem of Evil" on the Between Two Worlds blog. Take one of my favorite living apologists/theologians and ask him questions on one of the most difficult challenges of the Christian faith, and the result is this brief interview. If you or someone you know is struggling with the problem of evil, then you'll want to read this discussion.

4) J. Budziszewski, "Escape from Nihilism" on Leadership University. This link is a little different for me to include, but I just came across it and found it fascinating. Budziszewski writes about his conversion from nihilism to Christ. In reading it, I couldn't help but think of Romans 1:18ff.
