Mike Licona

Professor at Houston Baptist University “God has given this brilliant young man a passion for using the mind–which is often neglected by Christians–to reach the seeker and the doubter. He is resilient, focused, and disciplined.”

Gary R. Habermas

Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University “I have known Nick Peters for a couple of years and, in spite of several serious physical ailments, he excels at graduate level research, writing, debate/dialogue, and evangelistic efforts with those of other faiths. I commend his ministry.”

Tim McGrew

Professor of Philosophy at Western Michigan University “Practical apologetics requires more than just knowledge, though it does take that; it also requires wisdom in its application. I am grateful that Nick has both and that he makes time, faithfully, to share that knowledge and wisdom with the wider Christian community.”

Craig Blomberg

Distinguished Professor of New Testament at Denver Seminary “I am very impressed with what I have seen and heard. And during the two hours I was interviewed, Nick Peters was the most informed show host I have ever encountered. I think he knew my book, on which the interview was based, well enough to have been the interviewee himself.”
