THE NEW SPIRITUALITY: A Christian response to Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, and other new age adherents’ views on reincarnation, moral relativism, religious syncretism, pantheism, human divinity, and more
(DVD) by Charlie Campbell

Millions of people today say, “I’m not religious, but I am spiritual.” Many of them have left behind the religions they were raised in and adopted several new beliefs being promoted by Deepak Chopra, Oprah Winfrey, and others. Several of these beliefs come from what is known as “new age spirituality” or more recently, just “the new spirituality.” But are the beliefs really new? Will humans be reincarnated after death? Are we one with the universe? Are there no moral absolutes? Are all religions equal? Are humans divine? Charlie Campbell answers these questions and others in a visual presentation recorded before a live church congregation in San Juan Capistrano, California. 53 minutes. 2018 edition.



Was the Bible written by deceitful men? Is the Bible out-of-sync with scientific discoveries? Has the Bible undergone corruption as it was translated down through the centuries? Are the persons, places and events mentioned in the Bible mythological? What sets the Bible apart from other religious writings like the Quran, Hindu Vedas, or Book of Mormon? Charlie Campbell has been researching answers to questions like these for more than twenty years. In this updated, expanded DVD he answers these questions as he builds a compelling ten-pronged case for the trustworthiness of the Bible. You’ll learn about:
  • Scientific Discoveries
  • Archaeological Evidence
  • Fulfilled Prophecies
  • The Dead Sea Scrolls
  • Extrabiblical Historical Sources
  • The Martyrdom of the Disciples
  • Problems in the Quran
  • Problems in the Book of Mormon
  • And more!

NEW! THE BIBLE'S SCIENTIFIC ACCURACY AND FORESIGHT
(DVD or On-Demand Video)
by Charlie Campbell
Has the Bible been disproved by scientific discoveries? Is the Bible hopelessly out-of-date? Critics of Christianity say yes. But the evidence says no. In this 50-minute video, Charlie Campbell lays out a case for the scientific accuracy of the Bible by looking at several ancient revelations in the Bible that revealed amazing facts about the Earth and the universe thousands of years before the invention of telescopes, satellites, deep-diving submarines, and all the other technology that finally allowed scientists in the last century or two to verify these revelations were correct! This video will surely strengthen your confidence in the accuracy and trustworthiness of the Bible!

ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE FOR THE BIBLE
(DVD or On-Demand Video) by Charlie Campbell
Is the Bible a collection of fables and myths? Are the persons, places, and events in the Bible just fabrications by deceitful men? Many critics of Christianity think so, but archaeological discoveries show otherwise. Over the past two centuries, archaeologists have made thousands of discoveries that have helped to verify the exact truthfulness of the Bible's detailed records of various events, customs, persons, cities, nations, and geographical locations. This DVD by Charlie Campbell will introduce you to several of these fascinating Bible-affirming finds, both old and new. Length: 53 minutes.

SCROLLS & STONES: Compelling Evidence the Bible Can Be Trusted

(Book) by Charlie Campbell
Can we trust the Bible? Isn’t the Bible just “ancient fiction” written by fallible, perhaps even deceitful men? Haven’t books of the Bible been lost and even tampered with down through the centuries? Isn’t the Bible out-of- sync with scientific discoveries? What about the apparent contradictions in the Bible? What makes the Bible any different than the Hindu Vedas, Quran, or Book of Mormon?  Charlie Campbell has been researching answers to questions like these for nearly twenty-five years. It was his initial research that led him to become a follower of Jesus in 1990. In Scrolls & Stones he shares some of the evidence that changed his mind back then but also fascinating new discoveries...all confirming the reliability of the Bible. You’ll learn about:
  • Extrabiblical Historical Sources that Verify Biblical Events
  • Scientific Discoveries
  • Archaeological Evidence
  • Fulfilled Prophecies
  • Ancient Scrolls and Manuscripts         
  • Answers to Skeptics’ Objections and Questions
  • And more!

 Atheism evidence Jesus 282
ANSWERS TO ATHEISTS' ATTACKS ON JESUS

(DVD or On-Demand Video) by Charlie Campbell

When it comes to Jesus, atheists commonly say:

  • There’s no credible evidence Jesus existed
  • The authors of the Gospels stole their ideas for Jesus’ life from other ancient religions
  • The earliest Christians didn’t believe Jesus was God
  • The Gospels contradict one another
  • There are scientific errors in the Gospels
  • The “Gospel of Thomas” and the “Gospel of Judas” give us a more accurate understanding of who Jesus was
  • Accounts of Jesus’ miracles are fabrications

Charlie Campbell, an author and Christian apologist, responds to these charges and lays out a compelling case that Jesus really did exist and the Gospels are trustworthy accounts of His life (52 minutes).


Contradictions 282px
One of the number one reasons nonbelievers give as to why they don’t believe the Bible is their belief that the Bible is “full of contradictions.” In this hour long DVD recorded at Calvary Chapel South Bay in southern California, Charlie Campbell examines seven popularly cited examples of contradictions in the Bible. After pointing out the apparent contradictions, Charlie demonstrates how the apparent difficulties are resolved and where the critics have erred. DVD length: 60 minutes This new edition was shot in a widescreen format and contains many of the images Charlie uses in his PowerPoint presentation.
