I believe the reason many in the media, in academia and in politics have not accepted the gospel is we as Christians have not explained the gospel to them in a manner that makes sense. If people understood the gospel they would receive it. When the gospel message is understood, they would like it because it is good news that brings happiness to a hopeless soul. The central goal for Christian Apologetics is most purely stated as handling objections and further honest objections standing in the way of individuals coming to faith. In this compact book designed concisely for busy people who need solid answers about the Christian belief system one will come away with solid answers and with the awakening of logical and critical thinking regarding biblical claims. Disciplines such as Archeology, History, Astronomy, Jewish Studies and Natural Sciences are separate disciplines that support bible claims and when explored give peace of mind to adherents of Christianity but also to those of other belief systems who seek an objective scholarly study of the Christian Bible. Apologetics which means a defense of the faith, to defend a position, to persuade, providing evidence sufficient to bringing a trial from an arraignment stage to a full blown trial, which was recorded by the Apostle Peter and engaged by the Apostle Paul, in a literal sense when he stayed in Corinth for a year and a half just to teach, to reason with and to answer questions for the Corinthian believers and seekers who had honest questions. The Apostle Paul also engaged apologetics when persuading King Agrippa and Festus. The great Apostle Paul knew by the leading of The Holy Spirit when to preach, when to teach and when to sit with people and when to answer their questions so that the barriers to their believing would be removed. See Acts 18:11 which records "So Paul stayed in Corinth for a year and a half, teaching them the word of God." I believe the reason many in the media, in academia and in politics have not accepted the gospel is we as Christians have not explained the gospel to them in a manner that makes sense. If people understood the gospel they would receive it. You are in for a treat and instant growth just by reading this 103 page book. The contents are concise but derived from a first year seminary level course in Christian Apologetics formatted for a busy person to read in short bites. You wont be the same. God Bless You.
