Why We Need a Saviour

Imagine a World Without a Saviour

Professor Bruce G Charlton, a gifted British medical doctor and author, has commented on the video, Why We Need a Saviour.

“This inspiring two minute video shows that it is possible to communicate solid theology simply, briefly and also movingly. It honestly contrasts the essence of life-without - and then life-with, Jesus.”

“The video ... emphasises that the ultimate meaning is ultimate healing - that is, healing overall and in the end.”
