    Tyler Ellis was in Bible college when he realized he had been relying on his own good works, not Jesus, to save him. After that, he set out to interview 50 people—from Christians to Muslims to atheists—and ask them a crucial question.

    “If God and heaven are real, on what basis do you believe God would or would not accept you into heaven?”

    Find out what Tyler learned after two years of coffee shop conversations that were recently turned into a popular TEDx Talk.
