A 12-part Christian education series authored and promoted by Colorado-based Focus on the Family has been circulating around Iowa for the past few years. The program has been screened and discussed in local churches and private homes, but starting Monday the series will have its first screening in the state Capitol.
"The Truth Project" is a set of 12 DVD lessons, each one-hour in length, presented by Dr. Del Tackett and marketed by Focus on the Family. According to the project's Web site, the series was a response to a study that indicated only about 9 percent of professing Christians have a "Biblical worldview." The series, which is divided by topic, aims to retrain Christians on how to develop such a worldview and further inject the belief into the public sphere.
