Know Why You Believe
Title: Know Why You Believe
Publisher: InterVarsity Press (IVP)
One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals (Christianity Today, 2006)
"After 2,000 years, no question is going to bring Christianity crashing."
Do science and Scripture conflict? Are miracles possible? Is Christian experience real? Why does God allow suffering and evil?
These are just a few of the twelve most common intellectual challenges to faith that Paul E. Little encountered during his twenty-five years of speaking and teaching in the university. These questions need solid answers, and that's what a million people have already found in this clear and reasonable response to the toughest questions posed to Christian belief.
Sprinkling in a few "sure-fire jokes" and other humorous illustrations, Little uses these questions to jog readers' thinking and help them examine their present worldviews, ranging from scientific determinism to rabid existentialism. By thinking through the most common challenges to Christian faith, believers will be prepared to answer others out of the wellspring of their own certainty.
This edition, revised and updated by Marie Little in consultation with experts in science and archaeology, provides twenty-first-century information and offers solid ground for those who are willing to search for truth. Including a study guide for individuals or groups, Know Why You Believe is the classic answerbook on Christian faith.
