This book is a powerful apologetic for the Christian faith, written for believers and sceptics alike. It's thoroughly biblical, but also references a wide range of sources from fiction, philosophers and artists. The first part addresses the most common arguments against Christianity, and the second examines seven reasons for believing in Christianity and ends with the gospel message. This book is a great resource for believers for answering questions and criticism, and I have much more confidence since reading it. This is also the book to give to sceptical, seeking friends, as it respectfully challenges their beliefs and makes reasonable arguments for the Christian faith in an engaging and gracious manner. I highly recommend it!
