Ratio Christi believes that Christians have failed to address the pressing questions of worldview, science, philosophy, history, and the other academic disciplines. Consequently, the Secular Humanist worldview has overtaken the university and the minds of students. Ratio Christi, a Student Apologetics Alliance, places Christian apologetics clubs at secular, liberal, religious, public, and private universities around the world in order to take part in the battle for the mind, and begin to reverse the Humanist trend of thought by providing and equipping students with the answers, or means of getting the answers, to the pressing questions of life that shape our worldview. Crossroads supports Danny and Becky Loe who recently joined Ratio Christi and live in Louisiana. For more information, click on the Ratio Christi picture.
