From Coach Gibbs:
“One of our main goals for the Game Plan for Life is to help men see that the Bible is still a relevant book that is life-changing. One question that always comes up from guys is, ‘Can I really believe the Bible?’ It is a great question and there is probably no one more compelling than Josh when it comes to answering this question affirmatively. If you get a chance to see or hear Josh speak, I’d highly recommend you take the time to do so. He is simply one of the best communicators of our time.”
Official Player Stats:
Since 1961, Josh McDowell has had the opportunity to speak to more than 10 million students at live events. He has given over 23,000 talks in 115 countries. He is the author or co-author of 108 books, selling over 49 million copies worldwide including More Than a Carpenter (15 million copies worldwide) and The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict, recognized by World Magazine as one of the century’s top 40 books.
As a young man, Josh considered himself an agnostic and believed that Christianity was worthless. After being challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling and overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After his conversion, his plans for law school turned instead to plans for seminary and for telling a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. He completed his college degree at Wheaton College and later attended Talbot Theological Seminary where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Master of Divinity degree.
Josh joined the staff of Campus Crusade for Christ International in the early 1960s. A few years later, the Josh McDowell Ministry formed to realize the vision of reaching young people worldwide with the truth and love of Jesus Christ
Josh is currently traveling the United States with a message designed to help adults and young people take their faith and scriptural beliefs to form solid convictions that will stand firm in the face of constant worldly attacks.
Josh and his wife, Dottie, have been married for 37 years and have four children and two very precious grandchildren.
