Invite Jonathan Clerke to speak

Well experienced at teaching and preaching, I am passionate about helping people to know Jesus through pages of the Bible. I have greatly enjoyed the privilege of presenting to a wide variety of people, including church bodies, sports teams, young adult groups and students.

I greatly welcome the opportunity to present at your next conference, church service, university/ school group, or camp, no matter where in the world you are located.

Jonathan Clerke is a highly intelligent man who has used this gift to become a formidable and loving apologist for the Gospel.

He has extensive knowledge about the formation of the Scriptures and has recently published his first book on this subject, ‘Echoes of Jesus’.

He has been used by the Holy Spirit on many occasions to help inquirers see the accuracy and trustworthiness of the Bible. Over recent years, Jonathan has presented a seminar series in our church called ‘Seriously’ which addresses many of the intellectual questions raised by those seeking to determine the truth about Jesus Christ.

As a passionate evangelist, Jonathan constantly shares his faith on all the frontlines of his life and he has developed a special relationship with the Iranian community here in Australia.

Jonathan along with his wife Anita have been long term members of our church community and I commend Jonathan to any person, group or church who is seeking to help others overcome intellectual barriers to Christian faith.

As a pastor I believe the church should always be a safe place for those searching for answers to the meaning of life. For that reason we don’t ask people to leave their brains at the door and jump blindly into Christianity.

Recently I asked Jonathan Clerke to come and speak at our church about the credibility and reliability of the bible, drawing from his book ‘Echoes of Jesus’.Jonathan’s talk was engaging and accessible for both Christians and seekers alike. In fact many people bought a copy of his book following the service, and others expressed how surprised they were to discover the enormous amount of intellectual and historical evidence for the validity of the scriptures.

I am grateful as a pastor that a specialist like Jonathan is available to come and speak at churches. There is definitely a need to sure up the confidence of those in the congregation that the bible we preach from can be trusted.

I highly recommend that pastors consider inviting Jonathan to fill a space in their preaching calendar.

It was a great pleasure to have Jonathan come and speak at Hope Community Baptist Church.

I invited Jonathan to speak into some of the doubts and questions that people face when it comes to the Bible. The message he shared was engaging and inspiring and the way that he connected it to the Gospel was brilliant!

His approach to the topic took what could seem like complex issues and made them easy to understand.

A wide range of church events will be blessed by Jonathan’s ministry.

I am happy to recommend Jonathan Clerke and we look forward to having him back one day.

During the five day seminar we really enjoyed learning the Bible Apologetics and Gospel Cultural Studies here at Fera’abu Bible School.

We learnt a lot of new things in the studies, and the way Jonathan Clerke taught was absolutely extremely good.

I and my fellow pastors have no hesitation to say that Jonathan has done a very good job.

We salute you Jonathan for your good, clear and sound teaching.

This gave us a great sense of achievement after studying the Word of God and successfully completing the units. God Bless.

Recently our Men's Fellowship invited Jonathan Clerke to come and share at our monthly breakfast. Jon shared with us a little on the journey to, and following the writing of his book 'Echoes of Jesus: Does the New Testament Reflect What He Said? The time that we had with Jon was fun and inspiring, with many of the guys getting into stimulating conversations. These conversations revolved around the claims of some regarding inaccuracy of the New Testament writings, and the educational status of those following Christ's death and resurrection. The comments of those after the breakfast were all positive and showed gratitude for being able to spend time with Jon.

Jon is a friendly, jovial brother in Christ that has a deep love of God in Christ. I would highly recommend inviting him to any of your church functions. We also had the opportunity to purchase a few books off him on the day.

The book you have in your hand is the fruit of long, meticulous, and scrupulous research from a man who has been motivated by love to God and love to his neighbour. 'Echoes of Jesus: Does the New Testament Reflect What He Said' demonstrates that the facts of Jesus' are life beyond reasonable doubt, leaving readers with the choice to follow Jesus or not.

Jonathan delivered a sermon at my church with his characteristic Australian sense of humour, beautifully presenting what he discovered and what the Lord revealed to him.

В ваших руках плод долгого, кропотливого и скрупулезного труда человека, который был движим силой любви к Богу и к ближнему. 'Голос Иисуса' демонстрирует факт жизни Христа на уровне вне разумного сомнения ставя читателя пред выбором. Джонатан, с присущем ему австралийским чувством юмора, красиво излагает то- что он обнаружил и что открыл ему Господь.

Эмиль Рагимов, старший пресвитер Церкви Славян Баптистов, Брисбен- Австралия.

Emil's church made a recording of the evening service, so check out the this link to enjoy watching it at the Slavic Baptist Church preached in English and consecutively interpreted into Russian.

The introduction to the presentation starts at around 14:15, and the sermon itself at 15:55.
