Are you ready to defend your faith
Ever since the apostle Paul addressed the Stoic and Epicurean philosophers in Athens, relating the Christian world view to non-Christian world has been a challenge. And despite Peter�s challenge to be �ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you � (1Peter 3:15), most Christian lay people have left apologetics - the defense of the faith - to the ecclesiastical �pros�.
Even after twenty centuries of accumulated experience, many still feel unprepared to offer a coherent defense of their faith to those who question it, attack it, or just want to know more about it. It doesn�t have to be that way.

Kenneth Boa and Robert Bowman have assembled a wealth of information about what Christians believe and how to present that faith to an unbelieving world. Remarkable both in its depth of content and ease of accessibility, FAITH HAS ITS REASONS gives Christian laypeople the tools to address such critical questions as:
-Why is belief in God rational despite the prevalence of evil in the world?
-What facts support the church�s testimony that Jesus rose from the dead?
-Can we be certain Christianity is true?
-How can our faith in Christ be based on something more secure than our own understanding without descending into an irrational emotionalism?
