I Still Believe: How Listening to Christianity's Critics Strengthens Faith

Voorkant
Harper Collins, 2005 - 222 pagina's
Let the critics take their best shot. When the smoke clears, Christianity is still standing. Lots of books have been written on apologetics---savvy defenses of the Christian faith. But should your faith really depend on your ability to outsmart every critic? I Still Believe invites doubters, skeptics and others to open fire through candid interviews with a wide range of unbelievers, from the gentle offended to the angry antagonist. Rather than making a case for faith, it turns the tables by asking unbelievers to make their case for unbelief. When you truly listen, you gain a better understanding of their underlying feelings and mind-set; suggesting a deeper, unspoken reason millions reject Christian truth. See for yourself why the burden of proof lies with the unbeliever, not you. I Still Believe lets you eavesdrop on conversations with people who find Christianity hard to swallow. Hear what they've got to say with a compassionate heart, but also an objective mind. You'll understand them better. But in the end, you'll also be able to look them confidently in the eye and say, 'I still believe.'
