Why and How Do I Pray? is a chapter from Nicky Gumbel's book, Questions of Life, and the sixth talk on Alpha. Nicky looks at the reasons why to read the Bible and ways we can read the Word of God. This booklet may be given to any guest who missed this Alpha talk. Nicky offers answers to questions such as, "What historical evidence is there, other than the Bible, that Jesus actually existed?" He also discusses how what Jesus said and did two thousand years ago could still be relevant to us today. This is a great booklet to pass along to family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. It can also be given to a guest who may have missed this Alpha talk.
Alpha creates an environment of hospitality where people can bring their friends, family, and work colleagues to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view. Alpha makes it easy to invite friends to have spiritual conversations which explore life's biggest questions in a safe and respectful way. Alpha's approach to hospitality, faith, and discussion is designed to welcome everyone, especially those who might not describe themselves as Christians or church-goers. Each session includes time for a large group meal, short teaching, and small group discussion.
