Mike’s Workshops: 

Session 1

The Return to Genesis

Why is the book of Genesis so important? What difference does it really make? Is Genesis to be taken literally? Are the days of creation really six, literal days? How could we know? The book of Genesis comes under more attack than any other book in the Bible. Specifically, the accounts of creation, original sin, and the global flood are at the forefront. It’s understandable that secularists would criticize it because it stands squarely in the path of their evolutionary views. However, much more troubling is the question of why so many Christians dilute the Bible here!

Session 3

Lost Secrets of the Ancient Civilizations

Strange carvings. Impossible accomplishments. Baffling ancient maps. Strange machines. Mysteries from the past. How could ancient man do that? Can we learn anything? How does this apply to us? With fascinating illustrations, this session contrasts the evolution model with the creation model from an historic standpoint through a look at what many ancient cultures were able to accomplish. These accomplishments baffle us even today! How did ancient man do these things? This session contrasts some of these civilizations to our own and has a personal application.

Session 5


Repulsive? Perhaps. But spiders are actually quite incredible! There are three basic types, and each one displays amazing capabilities that astound anyone who bothers to take a look. They are marvels of design and very beneficial to mankind. While most people’s negative reaction to spiders is understandable, those willing to suspend their disgust long enough for a closer look will discover a hidden world of incredible design. Not only do spiders benefit us by consuming massive quantities of insect pests, but they do so using ingenious tactics. Some hunt and pounce, others build traps and wait. Many are cleverly disguised or camouflaged. They can spin up to six different kinds of silk for various purposes, each a marvel of engineering.

Session 6

The Mystery of the Dinosaurs

There is a biblical alternative to the standard explanation for these creatures. This session answers the basic questions on the subject. What were they? When did they live? What really happened to them? Does the Bible talk about them? And more! This is one of our most requested sessions.
