The Evidence You Need to Defend Your Faith
The Reason I Believe Delivers a Fact-based Defense of Christianity
When Christians are confronted with challenges to their faith, they need to be armed with facts. The Reason I Believe: The Basics of Christian Apologetics, written by Allen Quist, equips them to confidently answer questions such as “Is Scripture true?” with concrete facts.
“In an age such as ours, with all its moral and religious confusion, a basic orientation to apologetics is becoming increasingly vital for all Christians, including both pastors and laity,” writes Dr. Adam Francisco. “Professor Quist has achieved just the right balance for both, providing a robust yet succinct overview of the evidence of the Christian faith.”
In The Reason I Believe Quist offers a wealth of evidence for the truthfulness of Christianity, including the existence of God, the reliability of Scripture, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Quist also presents a biblical response to the problem of evil and the scientific issues with Darwinism, equipping Christianity to respond to these common objections to their faith with confidence.
