About The Author

Rick Mattson

Rick Mattson works as an Apologist for InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He travels around the country to college campuses making a case for the Christian faith. In churches, he helps lay people and pastors work through the hard questions of faith, like why bad things happen to good people, how to think about the relationship of Christianity to other religions, and how to have productive conversations with atheists and other skeptics.

Rick makes his home in St. Paul, Minnesota. He's a committed family man (and serious golfer!).
