A Better Understanding of Biblical Apologetics, an Equipping Tool Jan 22, 2008
In this user friendly study guide "Defending Your Faith," John Ankerberg and Dillon Burroughs challenge the reader to consider the basis of their faith, and to understand the development and accurateness of the Bible. These inter-active studies are formatted to be used over a twelve week period and can be adapted for personal study, or in a group Bible study setting. The book is the sixth title in the Following God Christian Living series, a topical approach to Bible study.
Each lesson considers an important question regarding the Christian faith. Evidence is presented with clarity to help the reader understand the material and in turn to communicate truths to family, friends, or others seeking answers to these questions for themselves.
Each chapter is divided into suggested reading and study to be covered over a five day period. The lessons provide valuable information and background material on such important issues as: The Bible as God's Word, other religions, evolution, creation, the resurrection, miracles, prophecy, and the problem of God allowing suffering and evil. Opportunity is given for self expression to aid the reader in assimilating the material. Each lesson is filled with scriptural evidence for study, reflection, and to equip you to defend your faith.
I personally appreciated the word studies, the thought provoking questions, the personal application opportunities and the insightful quotes from recognized Bible scholars.
"Defending Your Faith" is an excellent study and provides opportunity for the reader to apply truths to their own lives, and to know and communicate what the Bible teaches. It can be easily adapted for inclusion as curriculum in church discipleship and new believers training programs. I highly recommend this book for consideration by pastors involved in adult education opportunities, to every Christian Education Director, to small group leaders, and for individual study, and one-on-one discipleship mentoring.
