I am increasingly convinced that Christianity is among the most intellectually viable world views available. This message needs to reach and penetrate American culture. Christianity is not a dumb man’s religion. On the flip side, you don’t have to be a philosopher to engage in rational discussion. It doesn’t take a degree in Astrophysics or Systematic Theology to engage with Christianity intellectually. All it takes is an open mind and willing heart. Any Christian, no matter the stage of spiritual development, can learn to give a defense of the hope that is within them (1 Peter 3:15). This is the heart of Capturing Christianity. I want to empower Christians with the knowledge that the intellectual side of Christianity isn’t scary.

Maintaining a full-time job as a photographer means that Capturing Christianity receives only a small portion of my time. With your financial support, I can focus more of my efforts toward writing, speaking, interviewing professional philosophers, hosting discussions between theists and atheists, recording podcast episodes, and spreading the Good News.
We’ve recently developed an “Early Access” model on our website. Anyone that donates $5 or more per month to Capturing Christianity gains early access–usually around 3 days or so–to new articles and podcast episodes. You get to read and see things before everyone else! The reason we’ve selected this model is because it means that all of the content will still be available for everyone (eventually). We wanted a model that provided perks to patrons but ultimately didn’t inhibit reach. This was the perfect solution.
If you’d like to sign up and gain early access, visit the Patreon link above (the link that says “Monthly Giving”) and donate $5 or more. Ongoing support is what’s really going to help get us where we need to be. If that’s not for you, the second option is standard one-time giving (see below).
Pledging support either way will make a huge difference! Oh, and btw, Christianity is true.
