Condition: Like New
Like-new book. Appears unread. NO remainder marks or clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 743 pages. Whether debating Marxists, ... college professors, or Islamic apologists, Josh McDowell's hallmark has always been to walk boldly into enemy territory and speak truth. This book is based on the expectation that, with a growing number of adults becoming increasingly skeptical toward Christianity, there is a need for a solid body of persuasive evidence to be presented to them. This is a sourcebook for doubting seekers as well as current believers who need persuasive information to share with friends. Evidence for Christianity is McDowell's compelling answer to the hard questions so many Christians are afraid to discuss. Read more Show Less

Overview

Evidence for Christianity answers the above questions-and a host of others. It's a scholarly, well-written, exhaustively researched case for why Christianity is both true and real. It provides evidences beyond a reasonable doubt that Christ was exactly who he said he was, sent to do exactly what God his Father commissioned him to accomplish.

As with Josh McDowell's previous works, this book does not try to authenticate itself by a blind faith. On the contrary-Josh presents the rigorous scholarship of countless authorities, all unsurpassed in their own fields of expertise. It is backed by historical evidence, verified by painstaking investigation, and directly drawn from the words and the works of some of the world's most credible witnesses and researchers down through the centuries.

This book will provide believers with greater confidence and a revitalized foundation in the Christian faith. It will also provide anyone who is skeptical of the claims of Christianity a reason to believe. Evidence for Christianity has been written to testify of the living reality of Christianity.
