Book Review: Making the Case for Christianity

Making the Case for Christianity

Does God exist? Does the Bible offer reliable history? How can Christianity suggest it points to the only way to salvation? How can God be love in the midst of such horrible evils in the world? How can Christianity be genuine when it has been behind some of the worst atrocities in history?

Perhaps you’ve heard someone ask one of these questions, leave the church because of the answers they’ve concluded or bad mouth Christianity as a result.

Making the Case for Christianity is a new book in our library. It introduces specific intellectual objections to the Christian faith and then demonstrates how these objections might rationally be answered.

Following the advice of 1 Peter 3:15: “Always [be] prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you,” the book was written to prepare Christians to defend their faith.

However, I’ll admit that the book is a challenging read and could require several reads to really understand the arguments being made.

This is not a book that offers simplistic or cliche answers to difficult questions. In the midst of the pacifism that I often hear from Christians who downplay theology or anything intellectual, this book equips Christians to bear witness to the faith Christ gave his life for.
