Editorial Reviews

Ravi Zacharias
"As a student, I love Paul's teaching. As an apologist, I am grateful for his impact. Know Why You Believe is a valuable piece of work."
Josh McDowell
"Paul Little gives brightly understandable answers to questions about biblical Christianity. He shows there is a reasonable base to believe that Jesus Christ offers to give us connection to the living God."
Bill Hybels
"I've worn out multiple copies of this book and lost count of how many I've given away to seekers and new believers. It's a classic."
Christianity Today
One of the "Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals"
Billy Graham
"Scholarly, articulate, simple."
The Methodist Recorder
"This book canters brightly through the border-country between conviction and questioning."
Kenneth Kantzer
"When I lost my childhood faith, I needed a book like Paul Little's Know Why You Believe."
J. P. Moreland
"Shortly after my conversion in 1968 I was given a copy of Know Why You Believe, and it was what sparked my own lifelong interest in Christian apologetics. Through the years its quality has been demonstrated by its longevity. Now in this updated and expanded version, Paul Little's book can continue to provide hope and help to a new generation of truth-seekers."
