Overview

In an age of doubt, it's rare to find Christians who can speak clearly and boldly about the reasons for their faith. Douglas Jacoby is one of those rare Christians. As an international teacher for over 25 years, he has shared the vital truths found in Compelling Evidence for God and the Bible with thousands of people in all walks of life and in dozens of cultures.

Jacoby's book is an easy-to-read apologetics work that will

  • show readers the evidence that there is a God
  • help readers see the unique role of the Bible as the Word of God
  • encourage readers to make an informed decision about whether to follow Jesus

Compelling Evidence for God and the Bible is especially suited for nonbelievers, anyone new to the faith, and believers who want a better understanding of their faith and how to explain it to others. For readers who want solid reasons why the Christian faith is not only true but also reasonable, this book is the place to begin.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Douglas hits the right level for intelligent seekers. I appreciate the balance he strikes on many points, and I appreciate his tone of dialogue. Douglas has the heart of an evangelist, someone who reaches out to people who don't know Christ."
--Craig S. Keener, author of The IVP Background Commentary, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
