    From the Publisher

    "I consider Keeping Your Kids on God's Side to be an important, eye-opening 'gateway' book. Natasha has done a wonderful job of quickly introducing the important issues and evidences from the perspective of a parent. She's engaging, thoughtful, and she knows how to throw the ball so you can catch it. Let Keeping Your Kids on God's Side serve as an introduction to the most important work you will ever do as a parent."
    J. Warner Wallace, author of Cold-Case Christianity and God's Crime Scene, international speaker, professor at Biola University

    "I almost wish my children were young again so I could use Natasha Crain's book with them. Through her parenting blog, Crain has access to the most important questions and challenges parents are hearing from their children today. She writes in strong, vigorous prose and does a great job of pitching her answers at a level that parents can understand—and, even more importantly, that they can use."
    Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth and Finding Truth, apologetics professor, Houston Baptist University

    "Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is a timely and much-needed book. Natasha provides a road map so parents feel equipped to have the critical (and difficult) faith conversations with their kids. If you want to see your kids have a vibrant faith, then get this book and start having these conversations with your kids today!"
    Sean McDowell, author of more than 15 books, including A New Kind of Apologist, international speaker, professor at Biola University

    "Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is an outstanding resource every Christian parent should have in their home library...this book is the most accessible, non-intimidating treatment of key apologetics issues I've seen to date, and I will be recommending it to every parent I encounter!"
    Melissa Cain Travis, Assistant Professor of Apologetics, Houston Baptist University, author of Young Defenders series of apologetics books for kids

    "Parents, wake up. The secular culture is challenging our kids like never before and we've got to prepare them for the barrage of false ideas they will most certainly face. Apologetic conversations are no longer optional; they're a necessary part of our kids' discipleship. Thankfully, Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is the resource we all need. It's accessible and comprehensive, and it will equip you to engage your kids in conversations that count, big time."
    Brett Kunkle, Student Impact Director, Stand to Reason

    "Many well-intentioned, godly parents unknowingly send their children out into the world malnourished by an insufficient diet of evidence for their faith...We know. Ratio Christi sees it every day in our chapters on high school and college campuses. Students come to us starving for ways to defend their faith from intellectual assault. As the director of parent outreach at Ratio Christi, I've been looking for a tool to recommend to parents so they can start this training early at home. This is it. Start feeding your family a steady diet of Keeping Your Kids on God's Side to strengthen their hearts and minds for the battles against the secular smorgasbord they will face."
    Julie Loos, Director, Ratio Christi Boosters

    "As a youth pastor, I'm thrilled to see an apologetics book written with parents in mind! It is not a matter of if your children or students will encounter arguments against Christianity, but when. Questions will come, and when they do, where will your kids find answers? The Internet? Their college professors? Atheist friends? We need to take responsibility to equip ourselves to be that resource...this book will help you do just that!"
    Patrick Brown, Student Ministries Director, Whitehaven Road Baptist Church

    "As a pastor over family ministries, I am very excited about this book! It answers many of the strong objections against Christianity in amazing depth, yet in such a clear manner that even someone new to apologetics can easily understand it."
    Jared Novak, Family Pastor, New Life Church Bonita Springs

    Get this book if you want to equip your kids to defend their faith and stand strong! It is great for any parent (or adult) who wants to understand and explain the beliefs of Christianity and answer those hard-to-answer questions. Using clear logic, the author lays out the reasons to believe in manageable chapters that are only about 5 or 6 pages each. Every chapter ends with a summary to help you remember the reasoning so you can retell it. Designed to help you start conversations with your child, the author answers important questions that children wonder about and need to know answers to: how can we know God exists, why does He allow suffering, how can we know what truth is, how do we know that other religions are not pointing to the same God, how can He judge people who have never heard the gospel, how were the books of the Bible chosen, and does the Bible have errors or contradictions (to name just a few). The author is easy to understand, and you will probably find your own faith being strengthened as you reason through the 40 chapters with your child.

    Wow. Where was this book when I was raising my kids??? What a gift to every parent. Natasha has walked the rocky road of apologetic conversations with those who seek to take down Christianity. I love one particular quote from Natasha where she reminds us "it will be tempting to do absolutely nothing with what you've read in this book......But please don't get into the mind-set that you have an indefinite amount of time to impact your kids' faith. You don't.." We are losing our kids to the secular world at an alarming rate and this book will give you more than enough ammunition to defeat those who are seeking to destroy the next generation. The depth of information and advise in this book is staggering. Every parent needs to read this book. Every Christian teacher needs to read this book. Even at my age (55), I found this book to be a treasure trove of usable information. She covers everything from God, Jesus, and the Bible to developing a worldview as well as conversations you should have with your kids about creation vs evolution. She encourages every parent to learn about and develop understanding about the atheist mind set. I can't say enough good things about this book. It is just that good.
