Wasn’t the South African Apartheid supported by Christians? Weren’t the Crusades motivated by greed, but advocated by the church? Don’t phoney television preachers manipulate viewers into donating money? William Edgar addresses these and other questions honestly, without attempting to dismiss or explain away their uncomfortable realities. He displays the good aspects of the church even more brilliantly through frankly and Biblically acknowledging the bad. If you have ever asked the question Does Christianity Really Work? this will be an interesting and enlightening read, whatever your prior convictions.

From now on, when skeptics ask, ‘Where in the world has Christianity done any good,’ we have a powerful and convincing reply ... Bill debunks myths and blows the dust off of little known historical facts about the impact of the Gospel in a hurting world ... a remarkable book.

How Could a Loving God Send Anyone to Hell?

  • Author: Benjamin M. Skaug
  • Editors: James N. Anderson and Greg Welty
  • Series: The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered
  • Publisher: Christian Focus
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 208

The question of whether God can be loving and send people to hell is one people have been asking for a long time. Surely a God who sends people to hell cannot love them? Starting with a look at who God is and how we relate to Him, Benjamin Skaug looks at the difficult topic of hell, and what the Bible says about it.

Hell is often misunderstood or rejected outright today. Ben Skaug helps us see that the doctrine of hell fits with what the Bible teaches about who God is, with the teaching of Jesus, and with the nature of human beings. Indeed, the message of the gospel doesn’t make sense without the doctrine of hell. Here is a book on hell that needs to be read, digested, believed, and acted upon.

Why Is There Evil in the World (And so Much of It?)

  • Author: Greg Welty
  • Editors: James N. Anderson and Greg Welty
  • Series: The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered
  • Publisher: Christian Focus
  • Publication Date: 2018
  • Pages: 224

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Many people argue that the presence of evil in the world is proof that God cannot exist, or if He does exist, cannot be good or all–powerful. Greg Welty uses biblical exegesis alongside his experience as a philosopher to present a different conclusion. God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of the world, really does work all things for good. A must–read for anyone struggling with this issue.

This book is clear, even conversational in its style, but it is a deeply thoughtful, profound analysis. It can be of great philosophical and pastoral help to people who are concerned about this question.

—John M. Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida

Greg Welty is a Pastor at Grace Baptist Church of Wake Forest, North Carolina. He is also Professor of Philosophy and Program Coordinator for the MA in Apologetics and Christian Philosophy at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.

Why Should I Believe Christianity?

  • Author: James N. Anderson

Some people boldly claim, “Christianity is fine for some, but it isn’t for me”. Others feel it is just outdated and irrelevant. For better or worse, everyone in the Western world has come into contact with Christianity: we all have some opinion on it. James Anderson, with a clear, humorous logic, explores what Christianity really claims, and shows the underlying reason and consistency behind these claims. By the end of Why Should I Believe Christianity?, while you may not agree with the Christian worldview, it is impossible to be left sitting on the fence.

... The Christian ministry, taken as a whole, must be understood as an apologetic calling. This is why books like Why Should I Believe Christianity? deserve careful reading by pastors and laypeople alike. In this book, believers will find a compelling defense of the Christian worldview and the resources necessary to stand firm in a faithless age.

—R. Albert Mohler, President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

Why Should I Trust the Bible?

  • Author: Timothy Paul Jones
  • Editors: James N. Anderson and Greg Welty
  • Series: The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered
  • Publisher: Christian Focus
  • Publication Date: 2020
  • Pages: 208

The Bible is a cobbled–together selection of ancient writings that have been changed so many times by so many people over hundreds of years that surely the text can no longer be trusted–right? Certainly, there are plenty of people who take this view. Timothy Paul Jones here addresses the fact that the Bible is a difficult book to believe. It is full of incidents that seem highly improbable, if not impossible. Written for people who are sceptical of its accuracy, and of its authority, this book takes a reasonable look at the claims made about the Bible.

Why Should I Trust the Bible? steps inside our most challenging doubts about the Bible and shows us a way out to faith in its truthfulness. Written in an disarmingly honest and straightforward way, Timothy Paul Jones’s down–to–earth stories and up–to–date scholarship create a space in our skeptical world for authentic belief in the Bible. Highly recommended!

—Mark D. Allen, Executive Director, Center for Apologetics and Cultural Engagement at Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia & coauthor of Apologetics at the Cross
