NEWS & UPDATES
• Questions of Faith is the title of Shane’s forthcoming book, due out this coming spring. Shane has also been working on a book related to the ancient creed found in 1st Corinthians 15 (which also happens to be the subject of episode 9). Look for that book to come out sometime in the fall of 2024.
• Shane recently gave a talk on Jesus’ fulfillment of messianic prophecy, along with how that discovery ultimately led to his conversion to Christianity. You can watch a video of that presentation here (the talk begins at 1:45 from the start). Click here to download a PDF copy of the lecture slides.
• The folks at PJ Media recently highlighted Shane’s article on the Bethlehem prophecy found in Micah 5:2. On Christmas morning Chris Queen wrote a column about this piece titled “Christmas Day Thoughts: Promises Fulfilled.”
• Shane was recently interviewed by Joshua Simpkins for The Broken Vessels podcast, and that conversation appears on Episode 63.

Shane’s humble Christian apologetic approach to challenging our cultural confusion is enlightening and refreshing. I feel he can clarify Christian truth and doctrine for my millennial children in a way I have not been able to. — Pamela
Shane’s ability to clearly and kindly articulate the claims and doctrines of Scripture while simultaneously presenting the false beliefs in their best lights in order to reason through the arguments is incredibly helpful and needed. — Brandee

The Cross & Resurrection Conference • March 29-31, 2024 • Memphis, TN
Where was Jesus crucified, and why is this important? Did his death occur on a Thursday or a Friday? What is the significance of his death, and how should we respond to common objections to the resurrection? Can we be sure that Jesus existed in the first place and that his story isn’t some kind of legend? Join Shane Rosenthal and Kent Moorlach as they discuss these questions and more this spring at The Cross & Resurrection Conference in Memphis, TN. This 3-day conference is free but registration is required. Click here to sign up or for more info.
