Jonathon interviewed CCBR co-founder and now Executive Director of Faith Beyond Belief, Jojo Ruba. Jojo equips Christians to effectively explain and defend their faith using reasonable arguments that make sense to non-believers. Jojo focuses on practical ways to defend the faith. He teaches Christians how to explain their worldview using tools that non-Christians can understand.
2001 was the year Jojo Ruba and I met. It was also the year we started CCBR. And it just so happened that “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” was released in theatres then too. And as long as I can remember, Jojo was particularly fond of the following exchange between Frodo and Gandalf:
Frodo: “I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.”
