Overview

The Tough Questions series faces head-on the difficult and challenging questions seekers ask about the Christian faith. This book addresses questions and provokes thoughts about the seemingly conflictual nature of science and the Bible.

For Christians who care enough to give honest answers to the questions seekers ask — How can a merciful God send people to hell? Is Jesus really the only way to God? Why should I trust the Bible when it's full of inconsistencies? Tough questions. Reasonable questions. The kinds of challenging questions skeptics and seekers are asking, that demand informed and satisfying answers from Christians. The Tough Questions series offers an organized approach to answering modern seekers' questions about Christianity. In the process, it gives an overview of key elements of the Christian faith. This honest, informative series is the result of Garry Poole and Judson Poling's extensive work with seekers at Willow Creek Community Church. In six sessions designed to get small groups thinking, discussing, and sharing, each book deals head-on with questions and objections commonly raised about the Christian faith. Tough Questions deals frankly with the challenging arguments of secularism. Quotes from non-Christian skeptics in various disciplines, together with responses from credible Christian apologists, fuel the discussions. A great resource for small groups, churches, and Sunday school classes, this series offers seekers and believers alike the kinds of reasonable, factual answers that inspire faith, conviction, and trust in the reality and claims of Christ. How did the universe begin? What caused the origin of life? Is evolution really true? Are miracles possible? Was there a worldwide flood? Why did conflict between science and faith arise?
