400-408Kenneth Samples, Senior Research Scholar at Reasons To Believe (, and author of Without a Doubt and A World of Difference, shares his testimony.  He teaches Sunday mornings from 9-10am at Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, on Sunkist between Lincoln and Ball.
Ken switched from pursuing a career in professional baseball to voraciously studying Christian philosophy and theology when his thirst for purpose found relief in the Bible. He earned his undergraduate degree in philosophy and social science from Concordia University and his M.A. in theological studies from Talbot School of Theology. For seven years, Kenneth worked as Senior Research Consultant and Correspondence Editor at the Christian Research Institute (CRI) and regularly co hosted the popular call-in radio program, The Bible Answer Man, with Dr. Walter Martin.  As a youth, Kenneth wrestled with "unsettling feelings of meaninglessness and boredom," driving him to seek answers to life's big questions.  An encounter with Christian philosophy in Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis led Kenneth to examine the New Testament and "finally believe that Jesus Christ is the divine Son of God, the Lord and Savior of the world."  From then on, he pursued an intellectually satisfying faith.
