About "Defending Your Faith"

Sproul shows how reason and scientific inquiry can be allies in defending the existence of God and the historical truth of Christ. Those who seek a logical, biblical defense of the faith will find this an indispensable tool.


- Koorong

There is a widespread belief that reason and faith are incompatible and opposed to each other. Faith is viewed as subjective, emotional, a crutch for those who find the real world too hard. Though many of the world's finest minds hold this view, the Bible teaches that it is the fool who says there is no God.

Dr. R. C. Sproul clearly and simply argues that at its core Christianity is rational. He focuses on defending the basic truth claims for two of the most crucial issues of apologetics: God's existence and the Bible's authority.

In this primer of apologetic thought, Dr. Sproul affirms four logical principles that are necessary for all real discussion and teaches you how to defend your faith in a faithless world. Using the writings of church fathers and philosophers throughout the ages, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith.

The defense of the faith is not a luxury or an intellectual vanity. It is a task appointed by God that you should be able to give a reason for the hope that is in you as you bear witness before the world.

^Sproul's survey of apologetics demonstrates how rational inquiry and empirical research serve to support Christianity's claims rather than undermining them. Now in paperback. ^From the classroom to the mainstream media, Christians regularly find their fundamental beliefs discounted by opponents who consider faith to be incompatible with reason. But in this apologetics primer-now in paperback-respected theologian R. C. Sproul sets forth the core claims of the faith to reveal just how rational Christianity is. ^As Sproul surveys history's streams of thought, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith and affirms four principles of knowledge that are necessary for all legitimate discussion. He then demonstrates how reason and scientific inquiry serve as allies in defending two of the most strategic priorities of Christian apologetics: the existence of God and the authority of the Bible. ^Defending the faith is not a luxury but a task appointed by God as Christians
