Are you a thinking Christian with questions about faith? Do you know anyone who would like to explore their spirituality? Are you looking for an alternative to the Alpha Course?

Living the Questions is an open-minded alternative to studies that attempt to give participants all the answers and instead strives to create an environment where participants can interact with one another in exploring what’s next for Christianity. The 20-minute video segments include conversations with leading voices of faith, digital stories illustrating aspects of an evolving faith, and concrete spiritual practices and disciplines.

Featuring thirty acclaimed scholars, theologians and other experts, Living the Questions consists of 21 sessions grouped into three short courses: “Invitation to Journey,” “Reclaiming the World” and “Call to Covenant.”
