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
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.
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
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
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.
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
1) If there's a loving God, why does
this pain-wracked world groan under so much suffering
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?

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

abandoning intellect, and for Christians who seek to
grow in their faith and discipleship.]
