The Reason I Believe: The Basics of Christian Apologetics
How would you respond to the question, “Why should I be Christian instead of Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist?” You might focus on what Scripture teaches and what you believe, but the skeptics will press you for more.
But what if you answered, “You should be Christian because Christianity is the only religion that can be proven to be true”? And what if you had the evidence to support this powerful claim?
In The Reason I Believe, Allen Quist returns to a basic fact-based defense of Christianity. In doing so, he offers a wealth of compelling evidence for the truthfulness of Christianity, including the existence of God, the reliability of Scripture, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Quist also presents a biblical response to the problem of evil and the scientific issues with Darwinism, equipping Christians to confidently respond to these common objections to their faith.
After reading The Reason I Believe, Christians and skeptics alike will better understand why Christianity requires faith—just not a blind leap of faith.
Praise for The Reason I Believe
“A remarkable contribution to the defence of biblical faith.”
—Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, Director, International Academy of Apologetics, Evangelism, and Human Rights, Strasbourg, France
“The word apologetics scares a lot of people, because they think that refers to an exceedingly intellectual treatment of complex matters. Such is not the case with this book. Allen Quist offers us an extremely readable, biblical presentation in clear and accessible language.”
—Dr. Joel Heck, Professor of Theology, Concordia University Texas
“His explanation of natural law and its use in apologetics is the best I’ve ever seen.”
