Description Product Details
In an age of skepticism and disenchantment, people long for something that satisfies our mind’s search for truth and our heart’s desire for beauty and meaning. Stand Firm: Apologetics and the Brilliance of the Gospel argues that the gospel satisfies both of these needs. It is true and rational, but it is also inherently attractive and provides meaning and purpose. In short, the gospel is brilliant. It is brilliant, in one sense, because of the broad variety of evidences for its truth. But it is also brilliant given its beauty, goodness and the meaningful life it offers. The book provides up to date responses to questions about the existence of God, the reliability of the Bible, Jesus and the resurrection, and the problem of evil. It also treats unique topics such as understanding truth, knowledge and faith, the claims of alternate faiths, religious disagreement, etc. Each chapter attempts to connect these considerations with the gospel so that we may stand firm in our faith.


"As a Christian case-maker, I travel the country training Christians to make an adequate defense of their Christian worldview. My audiences repeatedly ask for resources to help them understand the evidence for Christianity and the relationship between making the case and sharing the Gospel. Stand Firm fits the bill perfectly. Stand Firm offers an excellent overview of the case for God's existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the truth of Christianity. More than just a book, Stand Firm also provides readers with brief, engaging assignments and a complete list of additional reading options. If you want to learn how to make the case for Christianity, Stand Firm is an excellent place to start." --J. Warner Wallace

"I give my highest endorsement to Stand Firm. It covers the central apologetics topics, but I have never seen an apologetics text that, chapter after chapter, makes an effort to connect apologetics with evangelism, the gospel, and devotion. This will be an excellent text for undergraduate and seminary students." --J.P. Moreland
