Atheistic and agnostic writers are aggressively attacking traditional religious beliefs. Philosopher and prolific writer Peter Kreeft is up to the challenge in this work of popular apologetics aimed at both teens and adults. The masterful Kreeft tackles sixteen crucial issues about the deeper meaning of life. The questions that Kreeft explores range from, Is faith reasonable?, Can you prove there is a God?, and Why is Jesus different?, to Why is sex so confusing?, Why is there evil?, and Why must we die? Kreeft provides thoughtful, lucid, and persuasive answers for believers, unbelievers, and seekers to consider. As always, Kreeft is insightful, inspiring, and entertaining. This book is ideal for those exploring faith for the first time, as well as for confirmation and religious education classes. It's an intellectual and spiritual feast! This is vintage Kreeft.

You are an ignorant person. You don't choose hetero or homosexuality. I know that 'adam and steve' joke might have made you laugh, but really. By saying that you are offending every homosexual person around you. That's quite a lot of people. Why don't you go home and do some research on what it means to be a homosexual, you ignorant homophobe

I love god, i really do. Im a christian and i will never change. But my family has been slipping away for a while. I have been lieing, my dad has made us stop going to work because hes tired from working, and my mom follows along with whatever my dad wants because she is stressed and deppresed. We used to be a wonderful family. What happened? Why did we all of a sudden change? Why would god do this to us? Please reply. Im out of ideas

God dosent hate you! God loves all his children equally! You could be lesbian or you could be a mass murderer!.... god still loves you! Never ever listen to what other ppl say!I once had some one look at me and say " why are you so fat!?" I just walked away and ignored it. I always get put down upon because of my wieght! Another example is it was my cousins bday and she got a bounce house so me her and a few other friends are jumping on the bounce house then this girl (whos as skinny as a twig) looks at my cuz and says " ur the fattest on here!" I say "what the heck??? Its her bday and u say that to her??...... so basically what im trying to say is that being gay isnt entirely wrong.. its just that god dosent exactely like it! Its like going to ur dad and saying " for my first job im working at hooters!" Sure he wont be happy about it but he cant say no becuz ur making ur own decisions now! Just be grateful for life itself! On a whole different subject... im a girl... r u single???
