I am one brazilian kid with 14 years old, this is my second post in this forum, so again, sorry by my poor english.
The IMPACT that William Lane Craig's work have in the word is gigantic. But unfortunately, the Impact that he have in Brazil is still little
. I am myself a witness of the this sort of Impact. I was one atheist kid, because of my one research in the internet and on literature, and suddenly, I adopt Richard Dawkins as one of my idols.
I absolutely love how Richard Dawkins was aggressive and rude with Believers.
But, one day I saw one video: "Why Richard Dawkins refuses to debate with William Lane Craig?" This was about april of 2011.
When I saw this i thought "MY IDOL DON'T REFUSES TO DEBATE WITH ANYONE WITHOUT A REASON!" so, I saw the excuses of Richard Dawkins, he says that he will not go into a debate with that Craig because he isn't at least a bishop. I laughed about it, but I began to wonder: "Who IS WILLIAM LANE CRAIG?" And when I started to research about him, I started my trip that was going to lead me to Jesus Christ HIMself. My first debate of Dr Craig, was "Craig vs Peter Atkins " with legends in portuguese. And I was absolutely shocked when I saw one christian type of person, speaking about "Logic" and really speaking WITH LOGIC(Yes I was one prejudiced atheist). First, I wasn't able to understand every type of so incredible structure of argument and advanced english (and portuguese with the legends) vocabulary. But, I saw, one debate, and two, and three, and four, and five, and since then, I never stopped.
Ok, so I began to see the word with other view. Now I was one theist.
I Was convinced that God exists, but I wasn't able to see, why it must be the christian God.
So, in one of Craig's lectures, he recommended the reading of the book "The Case for Christ" bad translated to portuguese as "In Defense of Christ"(Em Defesa de Cristo). So, like Craig says in one video about his testimony, to a make a long history a little more short, in September 25 of 2011, in a meeting of the church that one friend invited me to go, I gave my life and my mind to Christ, and received and felt the power of the Holy Spirit.
BUT AGAIN, THERE ARE MANY ATHEIST UNTIL IN BRAZIL, AND I'AM JUST A CHILD. I HAVE NO FAME, NO REPUTATION, I AM IN A ACADEMIC SENCE:NOBODY! BUT CRAIG, YOU ARE THE LEADER APOLOGIST IN THE WORLD, IF SOMEONE CAN CHANGE THE MIND OF THE BRAZILIAN PEOPLE THAT PERSON IS YOU.
Very little people knew about your coming to Brazil, and less people came to know you because you came to Brazil. In fact, everybody that was in that conference, already know you in some sort of way. So I Beg you, give Brazilian people another chance, try by you own, to make a trip in Brazil, I'AM SURE THAT EVERY CHURCH WILL BE HONORED IN FINANCE YOUR COMING. But please, beg to them put you in Jô Soares¹, or in Jornal Nacional² or in Época³.
Please return to Brazil, so that your works are best known.
¹Jo Soares is like one Opra in Brazil
²Jornal Nacional is the greatest jornal in the TV of Brazil, and they didn't told to anyone in anytime about your least coming.
³Época is the greatest magazine, and just Veja interview you.
