TrueU is a DVD-based apologetics curriculum. Dr. Del Tackett, architect and voice of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project®, describes this endeavor this way:
“Produced by Focus on the Family in conjunction with Coldwater Media, TrueU is an apologetics training series primarily geared to help prepare high school students for the rigorous challenges and attacks that will confront them on the university campus. My guess is that it will end up benefiting a whole lot more folks than just high school seniors.”
It is important to clarify that TrueU is not “The Truth Project for teens.” As envisioned by Dr. Tackett and our staff, TrueU will be, in essence, a series of “prequels” (or lead-in studies) to The Truth Project. (See the FAQ below, about TrueU’s format, for some important information regarding the lessons’ complexity).
TrueU is designed primarily to help students solidify their Christian faith with foundational apologetics training. This will equip young people to stand strong in the university environment, and also serve as a precursor to the in-depth study presented in The Truth Project of how to live out a Christian worldview in everyday life.
We would encourage those who complete TrueU to immediately join a Truth Project small group, if possible, and continue exploring the practical day-to-day application of a biblical worldview.
Volume 1: Does God Exist?
Volume 2: Is the Bible Reliable?
Volume 3: Who Is Jesus?
“This is a must-see for anyone asking if God exists. Dr. Stephen Meyer presents both sides of the question and allows the viewer to decide for themselves. It is also an important video series for anyone heading off to college.We are using TrueU in our church Youth Group and we can’t wait for the next set, “Is the Bible Reliable?””

“The youth pastor at our church showed this to the teens. I enjoyed it SO MUCH, that I am buying my own set to share with others!Dr. Meyers skillfully takes a difficult subject and makes it understandable. IT IS NOT AN EASY VIEW. You must engage your brain! If you are willing to put the mental energy into listening, you will increase your faith and understanding of God’s work in your body and universe. Thank you for this series!”
