Can I Trust the Bible? Premiere
Apologetics Canada will be premiering this brand-new video series on important questions about the most important book of the last two millennia: the Bible. Wesley Huff and Andy Steiger will be there in person to discuss the videos and you will have an opportunity to ask them questions during a time of Q&A. Coffee, tea, and desserts from Afterthoughts will be served during the break. Don’t miss out!
From sitting at the formation of governments, cultures, and law, the Bible has shaped the modern world in ways you may have never realized. However, while the Bible’s influence has remained, central attitudes towards it have radically shifted. Once referred to as “the Good Book,” there has been a growing skepticism and downright distaste for the Bible.
Are there good reasons to take the Bible seriously? Can we have confidence that it hasn’t been altered, adapted, influenced, and edited since its last book was penned nearly two thousand years ago? What are the implications if the Bible’s claims are true?

Wesley HuffCentral Canada Director / Apologetics Canada
Wesley Huff was born in Multan, Pakistan, and spent a portion of his childhood in the Middle East. After being diagnosed with a rare neurological condition at the age of eleven that left him paralyzed from the waist down, Wes experienced a miraculous recovery that the doctors themselves said they had no medical explanation for. This experience, along with a great deal of study and soul searching in his later teens, solidified his interest in the subjects of faith and engaging the beliefs and worldview perspectives of others. He spent his high school years in the Northern Ontarian town of Elliot Lake and currently lives in Toronto, Canada, with his wife, Melissa, their son Eli, and daughters Everly and Juliette.
He holds a BA in sociology from York University, a Masters of Theological Studies from Tyndale University, and is currently doing a PhD in New Testament and Christian origins at the University of Toronto’s Wycliffe College. For five years Wes worked as a writer, researcher, and speaker for Power to Change – Students (formerly Campus Crusade in Canada) and has made online contributions to Apologetics Canada, Power to Change – Students, The Gospel Coalition Canada, and the Apologetics Academy Webinar. Along with being involved in the collective with Talk About Doubts, he has been a curriculum contributor with Trans World Radio and written multiple entries (including those on Rastafarianism, Canadian Druze Society, and Kathok Conpa Buddhism) in the Melton’s Encyclopedia of American Religions (Ninth Edition, Vol 2: Canada).
Wesley is currently the Director of Central Canada for Apologetics Canada and has participated in numerous talks and interfaith dialogue events at universities and colleges across North America. He has been participating in public dialogues on issues of faith, belief, and religion for the last ten years.
He enjoys canoeing, archery, and cats (although not all three at the same time).
