Contending for the Faith

A multi-topic course in Christian apologetics that will strengthen your faith in the Bible and equip you to contend for the faith on a wide range of issues

“Charlie Campbell’s books and materials are incredible—beautifully illustrated, thoroughly researched, and very well written. He is an apologist extraordinaire! Don’t miss his stuff—it will stretch your mind, stir your soul, and bless your heart."
ED HINDSON, Distinguished Professor of Religion at Liberty University

Would you like to be better prepared to answer atheists, skeptics, and people in the cults?

Atheists and skeptics raise several objections and questions about God and the Bible that many Christians are not prepared to answer. If you could use some help being better prepared to "contend for the faith" (Jude 1:3), you're going to love this course.

Would you like to learn how ancient historical sources have confirmed numerous details in the Bible?

Many Christians are unaware of how the ancient records of the Assyrians, Babylonians, and Romans have verified details in the Bible. That won't be you after you take this course.

Are you a visual learner? Do photographs of archaeological discoveries, distant galaxies, the Dead Sea Scrolls, etc., help you better understand and remember facts?

Then you're going to love this course! Charlie Campbell is well-known for his visual presentation style, i.e., lots of high-quality photos in his PowerPoint presentations. And you'll see those images embedded in each video. It will be like having a front row seat in his classroom or at one of the big apologetics conferences he speaks at.

Hundreds of people have told us that these videos...

Strengthened their faith and confidence in the Bible
Emboldened them to speak to non-Christians about Jesus
Equipped them to answer the challenging objections Christians face
Reignited their love for Jesus

And we trust that God will work in your heart and life in this way as well.

Videos are about 50–60 minutes long (a couple are longer). You are free to pause or stop the videos whenever you need to. When you log back in, the video will remember where you left off.
Is the course mobile friendly?
Yes! You can watch the classes right on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. How cool is that!?
Are there homework assignments or tests?
No, but we do provide downloadable (printable) questions with the class lectures for reflection and discussion. They are provided to help the student take notes and reflect on what he or she is learning. Parents or instructors could require that their students answer the questions.
What age range is this course appropriate for?
We recommend the course for 8th graders and up. Charlie is known for his clear, easy-to-follow teaching style that incorporates lots of photos and visuals into his talks. We've heard from dozens of junior high and high school students how much they've loved the videos.
Why are you charging money for this class?
ABR would love to give away every book and video we've published for free! But quite honestly, we'd also like to continue contending for the faith and equipping God's people to do the same. And that takes people, time, research, office space, supplies, books, and a lot of hard work. And our small team needs to eat and support their families with a bit of income. So, thank you for understanding!
Is a refund available if I'm not happy with the course?
Yes! Based on feedback from hundreds of students, we think you are going to love the course. But if you don't love it, just let us know via email (alwaysbeready.com@gmail.com), and we will be more than happy to issue a 80% refund up to 7 days from the date of purchase.


“I just wanted to thank you for the killer work on the video series...I am taking my youth group through the whole series. It has been incredible. We use a lot of it when we go out and evangelize on the streets, and not only that, but I have grown as a pastor through it as well. I feel it is a huge piece we are missing in the overall picture as the church. We are good at telling people what to believe, but rarely why they should believe it.”
TRISTAN, Pastor, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

“I just finished watching Charlie Campbell’s video on evidence for the Bible and all I can say is WOW and thank you very, very much. I read and search always for things to strengthen my faith and knowledge in and about God and this is by far the best. It’s very easy to follow and understand and is a work of art. Great job and keep up the good work as there are so many of us out here that need these types of aids in our journey. Thanks again and God bless you.”
