    John Ankerberg and Dillon Burroughs challenge the reader to consider the basis of their faith, in this user friendly study guide ¿Defending Your Faith.¿ The book is designed to help the reader understand the development and accurateness of the Bible. The inter-active studies are formatted to be used over a twelve week period. They can also be adapted for personal or group Bible study. The book is one of six titles in the Following God Christian Living series which uses a topical approach to Bible study. An important question regarding the Christian faith is considered in each individual lesson. The evidence is presented with clarity to help the reader understand the material preparing them to communicate these truths to family, friends, or others seeking answers. The chapters are divided into suggested readings to be studied over a five day period. Lessons provide valuable information and background material on such topics as: The Bible as God¿s Word, other religions, evolution, creation, the resurrection, miracles, prophecy, and the problem of God allowing suffering and evil. Opportunities are provided for self expression to assist the reader in assimilating the material. The lessons are filled with scriptural evidence for study, reflection, and to equip you, the reader, to defend your faith. I personally found the word studies helpful. I also appreciated the thought provoking questions, the personal application opportunities and the insightful quotes from renowned Bible scholars. ¿Defending Your Faith¿ is an outstanding study and provides a chance for the reader to apply truths personally, It provides steps to learn what the Bible teaches and secondly how to communicate the message of the Bible. The lessons can be adapted for inclusion as curriculum in church discipleship and new believers training programs. I recommend this book for consideration by pastors involved in adult education opportunities, to every Christian Education Director, to small group leaders, and for individual study, and one-on-one discipleship mentoring.
