GodQuest Church Resources

Go on a GodQuest with Sean McDowell - a new sermon and small group series for adults and teens!

A recent study by the Barna Group found that 59% of Americans and 40% of born-again Christians believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. With the dizzying array of spiritual options, and the increased acceptance of universalism (that all people will eventually go to heaven), is it any wonder that people are confused? This is a wake-up call for churches to focus on the core beliefs of the Christian faith—and on Jesus as the one true path to God.


"I am thrilled about GodQuest..."

– Dan Kimball, author of They Like Jesus But Not The Church

 

"In a world where spiritual confusion is increasing, GodQuest helps bring clarity and conviction..."

– Lee Strobel, bestselling author The Case for Christ

 

"GodQuest is an awesome resource to explore life's most important questions..."

– Jud Wilhite, author of Torn and Senior Pastor

 

"I highly recommend GodQuest for any church..."

– Josh McDowell, bestselling author of More Than a Carpenter

 

"This is not just another apologetics resource. This is a great resource..."

– Michael Licona, Ph.D., Apologetics Coordinator, North American Mission Board

The Quest
Novel

By Bob Hostetler & Sean McDowell

A single phone call launched twenty-three-year-old Emma Seeger on the journey of a lifetime. And it turned out to be a more dangerous—and a more consequential—journey than she could have imagined... or feared. For Christian readers, The Quest will provide a compelling model for effective ways of sharing evidences for the Christian faith with resistant—even antagonistic—minds and hearts. For spiritual seekers, this book will answer questions they don't even know they're asking, and lead them to a discovery they didn't even know they were seeking—the object and fulfillment of every human heart.
