CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS


Be prepared "in season and out" with this handy reference book of faith. Timely and biblically based, Josh McDowell's work offers defenses in 60 of the most-challenged areas of faith. All in one easy-to-reference volume, this book will strengthen your commitment and help you stand firm against challenges to the truth. One of today's leading Christian apologists, Josh McDowell tells his own story of how he as a confirmed skeptic came to believe in the Christ whose existence he had challenged. McDowell discusses archaeology, miracles, the resurrection of Jesus, creation, cults, and much more.


Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God?  Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.  Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament?  Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible?  Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?  Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this remarkable book read like a captivating, fast-paced novel, But it's not fiction.  It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure.


During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune.  Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant - or so Strobel thought.  But today science is pointing in a different direction.  In recent years, a diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed.  At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason.  Strobel reexamines the theories that once led him away from God.  Through his compelling and highly readable account, you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness that present astonishing evidence for a Creator.


Answering those who claim that only the King James Version is the Word of God, The King James Only Controversy examines allegations that modern translators conspired to corrupt Scripture and lead believers away from true Christian faith.  In a readable and responsible style, author James White traces the development of Bible translations old and new and investigates the differences between new versions and the Authorized Version of 1611.   The King James Only Controversy is scholarly and accurate, and its evaluation of opposing viewpoints fair. Anyone troubled by criticisms of English translations will find White trustworthy. I hope his book will be widely circulated. It will do much good.
 


For more than twenty-five years the standard account of transcribing and transmission of the New Testament, this book offers a comprehensive survey of the ancient and newly-discovered manuscripts, and considers both the science and the art of textual criticism as applied to the evaluation of divergent readings of those manuscripts.  Containing references to more than 300 books and articles dealing with Greek manuscripts, early versions, and critical studies of witnesses to the text of the New Testament, it covers a variety of textual problems and gives an objective account of the several schools of textual methodology.


With solid evidence, exacting analysis, and firsthand descriptions, author Grant R. Jeffrey investigates recent events and discoveries that verify beyond a doubt God's authorship not only of the Scriptures, but of all creation.  He explores historical, archaeological, and scientific documents and finds an overwhelming number of irrefutable proofs that the Bible is accurate both as history and prophecy.  Proofs such as:

  • The name of "Yeshua" (Jesus) appears in code throughout the Old Testament

  • Prophecy fulfilled in our time with incredible precision

  • Advanced medical diagnosis and treatment found in Scripture

  • Evidence for the miraculous destruction of the walls of Jericho

  • Overwhelming historical proof of Christ's death and resurrection

  • Scientific statements about astronomy that are thousands of years in advance of their day

Here is indisputable evidence of the divine inspiration and authorship of Scripture, Grant R. Jeffrey's eye-opening book, The Signature of God, gives you compelling scientific and rational evidence that no serious scholar can deny.



All worldviews, including atheism, require faith. I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all because it is the most reasonable. The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style. A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to the previous beliefs of doubters of all sorts.
 


This eagerly anticipated sequel to Lee Strobel’s best-selling The Case for Christ finds the author investigating the nettlesome issues and doubts of the heart that threaten faith. Eight major topics are addressed:

1) If there's a loving God, why does this pain-wracked world groan under so much suffering and evil?
2) If the miracles of God contradict science, then how can any rational person believe that they're true?
3) If God is morally pure, how can he sanction the slaughter of innocent children as the Old Testament says he did?
4) If God cares about the people he created, how could he consign so many of them to an eternity of torture in hell just because they didn't believe the right things about him?
5) If Jesus is the only way to heaven, then what about the millions of people who have never heard of him?
6) If God really created the universe, why does the evidence of science compel so many to conclude that the unguided process of evolution accounts for life?
7) If God is the ultimate overseer of the church, why has it been rife with hypocrisy and brutality throughout the ages?
8) If I'm still plagued by doubts, then is it still possible to be a Christian?



  Tragically, many so–called experts today are spreading inaccurate or biased information about the Bible. Authors and researchers Ankerberg and Burroughs have written Taking a Stand for the Bible to help set the record straight. Along the way, they answer the most crucial questions both Christians and non–Christians are asking, including:
  • How did we get the Bible?
  • How accurate is the Bible?
  • Is the Bible still relevant to today?

[CM Note: This is an excellent resource for rebutting those who believe that the Bible has been corrupted or is otherwise unreliable.  It also illustrates the incredible accuracy and reliability of the text that can only be divine.]

Includes exclusive interviews with some of today’s top Bible scholars, including Dr. Craig Blomberg, Dr. Darrell Bock, Dr. Gary Habermas, and Dr. N.T. Wright. Together they point to remarkable and convincing evidence that affirms the Bible’s integrity and reliability.



  A leading evangelical thinker offers this brand–new way of addressing life’s most important questions: Does God exist, and can we know Him? J.P. Moreland, distinguished professor of philosophy at Talbot School of Theology, abandons traditional didactic apologetics and entices skeptics and dissatisfied believers into a conversation about the emptiness and anxiety so many feel today. He invites them to the abundant life Jesus offers but that so few seem to be experiencing.

Moreland shows that people are created by a benevolent God and given a life–enhancing purpose. He empowers readers to...

  • overcome obstacles to faith, including questions about science and religion
  • embrace an enticing view of Jesus and the kingdom of God
  • replace unhelpful images of God with the truth

Readers will find practical and effective ways to experience intimacy with God, an effective life of prayer, and a confident hope in life after death.

[CM NOTE:  This is an EXCELLENT resource for skeptics who feel that faith in Christ requires abandoning intellect, and for Christians who seek to grow in their faith and discipleship.]
