Answers to Today's Toughest Faith Questions
"Well, that may be true for you, but it's not for me" is the rallying cry of our culture. It's one of many popular sayings put forward with no evidence, like:
- All religions lead to God
- Who are you to judge others?
- Jesus was just another great religious leader.
- Christians are so intolerant.
Most Christians are left grasping for a response, and the conversation moves on without them. True for You, But Not for Me is a ready-reference handbook for answering our culture's latest objections to Christianity. It features:
- Brief answers to each argument
- Readable explanations on each subject.
- Helpful introductory material to sets of similar anti-Christian slogans.
- Study questions for individual or group use
Apologetics authority Paul Copan tackles popular sayings that often leave Christians speechless, such as "All religions lead to God," "Who are you to judge others?" or "Jesus was just another great religious leader." He provides readers with thoughtful explanations of anti-Christian slogans and brief answers to help them continue their conversations with non-Christians. In addition, Copan answers questions about the unevangelized. Study questions for group or individual use are included.
"Here are incisive and insightful responses to many of the most common misconceptions about Christianity and faith. I''m thankful for Paul Copan''s uncanny ability to see through popular opinion and focus on answers that make sense."--Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus"In this engagingly written but intellectually rigorous book, philosopher Paul Copan tackles the challenges posed to Christian belief by the relativism and pluralism that are so widespread in American culture as to be almost assumed. Such assumptions often come to expression in mindlessly repeated one-liners. Copan''s careful exploration of the rational foundations of such slogans will be of great practical help to anyone who finds himself confronted with these challenges to the Christian faith."--William Lane CraigResearch Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, author of Reasonable Faith"When I first got a copy of the first edition of "True for You, But Not for Me," I could not put it down. It was a thorough treatment of moral relativism and religious pluralism, and a great read at that. But this revised version is even better! It is significantly revised, expanded, and updated. Given the relativism ubiquitous in our culture, this book should be required reading in Christian high schools and colleges. And laypeople and parachurch ministries will profit greatly from its content." --J.P. MorelandDistinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, author of The God Question"Paul Copan''s "True for You, But Not for Me" is a must-read book for every believer. This fully updated and revised book is one of the best cultural apologetics books written in recent years. Copan equips Christians to know how to stand firm in the faith when non-believers throw out slogans like ''Who are you to judge others?'' and ''That''s just your opinion.'' If you want to have a strong foundation of knowing how to take a stand for truth, read this book!"--Josh McDowell Author of More Than a Carpenter "Do you desire to be on the cutting edge of today''s culture wars? In "True for You, But Not for Me," philosopher Paul Copan treats us to a new edition of a much-needed text that addresses succinctly those bewitching topics that seem to most concern this present generation. Tackling relativism in its best-known forms, such as moral permissiveness and religious pluralism, Copan repeatedly points out many clearly recognizable false assumptions. Along the way he deals with numerous hot-button topics such as applying logic to life, intolerance, dogmatism, evangelism, arrogance, and the equality of all religions. Addressing more than two dozen popular slogans from current jargon, this handbook also provides helpful bullet points designed to summarize the most crucial discussions. This delightful volume moves quickly and is crucial reading for those who wish to address the most popular beliefs of an entire generation."--Gary R. HabermasDistinguished Research Professor, Liberty University and Theological Seminary"Pilate once asked Jesus, ''What is truth?''...and here we are two thousand years later, educated, informed--and thoroughly confused about the very same question! In this book Paul Copan brings clear thinking to this critically important subject, and illustrates it in ways that any thoughtful reader can understand and embrace. So read this book; it''s true for everybody!"--Mark Mittelberg, author of Choosing Your Faith...In a World of Spiritual Options, coauthor (with Lee Strobel) of The Unexpected Adventure" ''True for You, But Not for Me'' is an outstanding book that every thinking Christian needs to read and carefully study. Copan''s reasoning is informed by Scripture and his arguments are consistently clear, concise, cogent, and compelling. Yet his style of communicating evinces a winsome and gracious attitude toward those who have questions and objections regarding historic Christianity. This book will ably equip its reader to engage in e
