One of the most endearing qualities of Christ was His ability to connect with the person on the street. The common people gladly listened to Him because He could frame eternal truth in terms that made sense to them. Why Trust Jesus? is in that same spiritual vein. Its value goes beyond the classroom and into the breakroom, and its place in this "bottom-line society" of ours is well-warranted.
Senior Pastor, Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale
Dave has an uncanny ability to take Biblical truth and put it in a format that is easy enough to inspire those who have never been formally theologically trained, yet deep enough for someone seminary trained to discover new insights.

When the question is asked today: "Whom do you trust?" I am afraid the answer from many in this generation would be, "No one... and why should I trust Jesus when there are other spiritual paths and when there is so much hate, hypocrisy and death in the world?" In his book, Why Trust Jesus?, Dave Sterrett answers these tough questions with compelling evidence from Scripture and philosophy.
Probe Ministries International
For a generation that does not trust Jesus, nor do they trust their parents, and many times not even themselves, this book on trust should speak to their hearts and show them how to put their trust in Jesus Christ for salvation and the Christian life.
-Elmer L. Towns
Co-Founder, Liberty University, Dean, School of Religion
For such a young man, David Sterrett has had ministry experiences that few others have had. He has been exposed to many published authors in the field of apologetics, and has spent more than the normal amount of time with some of them, like Josh McDowell and Norm Geisler. Why Trust Jesus? is the sort of brief, thoughtful, and directed response that we need to read.
-Dr. Gary R. Habermas
Author of The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus
David Sterrett has written a seeker-sensitive book that will encourage those who have an interest in exploring and discovering truth. I also highly recommend this book as a tool for study. It will encourage those of us who know Christ to be better prepared as we engage our culture in conversation. May God use this book to advance His kingdom.
Evangelist and President of the Steve Wingfield Evangelistic Association
Dave Sterrett answers the tough questions raised by the postmodern generation. Don't miss his insights to their thinking and his answers to their deepest issues.
-Dr. Ed Hindson
Author of over fifteen books including Courageous Faith
We often feel compelled to approach the issues of faith in our day with defense or apologetic to challenge the thinking of an unbelieving world. Dave Sterrett takes this issue to a different level. He presents the attraction and appeal of the person of Jesus Christ and provides a credible basis for faith based upon His character. Dave strengthens his defense and simplifies his challenge by enabling the reader to see why it just makes
sense to¿trust Jesus.
-Dr. David H. McKinley
Pastor of Warren Baptist Church, Augusta, Georgia
Rev. Sterrett has hit gold with his observations about trust. Simply put, trust is the currency of the kingdom. It is through trust that we enter the kingdom, live, and conduct our lives. Dave helps us work through the questions that must be addressed for us to be able to completely trust.
-Dr. Gerald Brooks
Pastor, Grace Outreach Center, Plano, TX and author of Ladder Focus.
David Sterrett, in his book, Why Trust Jesus?, has posed the question that so many people have asked throughout history. As you read this book, you will find that he has wrestled through the issues in order to give us practical, biblical answers, not just theological idioms.
