Overview

In today's postmodern world, believers more than ever before are faced with a host of objections to Christianity. Expert apologist Paul Copan describes these objections as "anti-truth" claims and with "How Do You Know You're Not Wrong" he provides a helpful resource with thorough, biblical answers to such regularly used objections as

- "Whatever works for you"
- "Just as long as it makes you happy"
- "All religions are basically the same"
- "Christianity is anti-semitic"

At the end of each chapter, he provides practical and easy-to-share summary points to help readers intelligently and effectively answer the challenges of their non-Christian friends and neighbors.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Copan (Creation Out of Nothing), a teacher of philosophy and ethics, addresses tough questions about faith and Christianity without sidestepping the reasoning of skeptics or issues of objectivity, truth, and reality. He carefully examines common contemporary philosophical, scientific, and textual objections, asking, for example, why should one believe in the existence of the immaterial, such as the soul? What about scientific proofs? Is naturalism a simpler explanation than theism? Is there a place for moral responsibility? Why would God command Abraham to sacrifice Isaac? Aren't some of the Old Testament laws oppressive and harsh? Shouldn't the New Testament include the Gospel of Thomas or other texts? Copan handles these and similar issues fairly and objectively and provides a handy summary at the end of each chapter. He effectively examines the presuppositions we hold that color our thinking. Appropriate for inquisitive students, skeptics, seminarians, and clergy, this is recommended for academic and large public libraries.-George Westerlund, formerly with Providence P.L.
