On Guard: Defending Your Faith with Reason and Precision (Colorado Springs: David C. Cook, 2010)

There is no doubt that the Christian faith is under attack. The problem is that many Christians have no idea why they believe what they believe, and as a result, cannot defend their faith. Some Christians have attempted to read books by apologists in an attempt to grow in the ability to defend their beliefs only to become discouraged by the difficult reading level of many such books.

None of this has caught God off guard, nor should it surprise us. Continue Reading
