330-338Sean McDowell, (, head of the Bible department at Capistrano Valley Schools (, and author of many books including Apologetics For A New Generation: A Biblical And Culturally Relevant Approach To Talking About God.  And, in the new revised version of his dad's 1977 megaseller More Than A Carpenter, Sean joins his father, Josh McDowell, to tackle the questions that today's generation continues to ask about the person of Jesus Christ – with a new chapter devoted to addressing the "New Atheism."
• The Nation (6/7/07) The New Atheists.
What began with publisher W.W. Norton taking a chance on a gutsy, hyperbolic and idiosyncratic attack on religion by a graduate student in neuroscience has grown into a remarkable intellectual wave.  No fewer than five books by the New Atheists have appeared on bestseller lists in the past two years--Sam Harris's The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation, Daniel Dennett's Breaking the Spell, Richard Dawkins's The God Delusion and now Christopher Hitchens's God Is Not Great. The scandalized media have both attacked and inflated the phenomenon. After the New York Times Book Review, for example, ran a thoughtful review of Harris and then a negative front-page review of Dawkins, the daily paper published two weak op-ed attacks on the writers and a vapid article on how atheists celebrate Christmas, followed by tongue-in-cheek admiration in the Book Review for Hitchens's ability to promote his career by saying the unexpected.

512-523David Trujillo, he is the pastor of Calvary Chapel South LA since 2005 (, 323-583-8894).  David was a gang member who came to Christ at the age of 19, in 1992, after hearing David Rosales preach.  He started playing basketball with the kids in South Central, and that grew into a shuttling ministry taking car loads of kids to hear pastor David.  In time, many of the kids were unable to keep going, so David asked Rosales what to do.  Rosales encouraged him to start a Bible Study – that has now become Calvary Chapel South LA.  Edwin approached Trujillo about the idea of a skate park, David consented, and the Lord has opened many doors to reach the kids, and their families, in the neighborhood that was once rival turf for Trujillo.  Today, hundreds of kids are reached with the gospel at their skate park.  What a creative outreach!
We want to invite you to Hear His Voice '09 this Saturday from 10am-4pm at the Nokia Plaza.  Find out more by going to  You'll be hearing from David, David Rosales, David Zamora, Gary Ruff, Jimmy Orate, and Tommy Cota.
