Why I Believe: Straight Answers To Honest Questions About God The Bible And Christianity
Description: Responding to the perception that Christians are prejudiced, anti-intellectual, and bigoted has become a greater challenge than ever before. The result is often intimidation, withdrawal, and even doubts among God's people about what we really believe. Chip Ingram wants to change that. In Why I Believe, he gives compelling answers to questions about
· the resurrection of Christ
· the evidence of an afterlife
· the accuracy and intellectual feasibility of the Bible
· the debate between creation and evolution
· the historicity of Jesus
· and more
His solid, biblical, logical answers will satisfy the honest doubts that every believer experiences, and will provide thoughtful arguments for those who are struggling with their faith, curious about Christianity, or who honestly want to follow Jesus without checking their brains at the door.
"Why I Believe tackles some of the toughest questions of our day. Through both research and personal stories, Chip shares why he went from a full-blown skeptic to a Christian. Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, you will be greatly encouraged and challenged by the stories and evidence in this book."--Sean McDowell, PhD, author, speaker, professor
"Chip Ingram has given us a fantastic guide for not only knowing what we believe but for owning, understanding, and defending those beliefs. His careful attention to doubts and questions will help Christians dive deeper into their faith and live it out more fully. Read, study, and share this book."--Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries
"The apostle Peter tells us to always be ready to answer anyone who asks for a reason for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15). Being ready doesn't have to be intimidating. Chip Ingram has presented a straightforward case for why he believes. This book will help strengthen your own belief and give you resources for communicating it to others."--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family.
