Many Christians find themselves in such situations but don’t speak up because they don’t fully realize the strength of their own position. They feel incapable of giving reasons for the hope that is theirs.
Christian apologetics is the discipline and growing body of knowledge that equips believers to address their own doubts, to converse with seekers and critics from a position of strength, and to bear witness to Christ with confidence.
In the spirit of the title question, If God Made the Universe, Who Made God? collects 130 essays written in defense of the Christian faith. Contributors include some of the pre-eminent apologists of our time, from Lee Strobel and Charles Colson to Hank Hanegraaff, J. P. Moreland, and Ravi Zacharias. The content is grouped into ten topics:
Apologetics: Introductory IssuesJesus ChristScience and FaithCults and World ReligionsThe Existence of GodEthicsTheologyThe ScripturesHeaven and HellEvangelism
Each devotion includes a daily Scripture reading that focuses on courageous choices made by men and women of the Bible plus an "Anchor Point" (foundational Scriptural truth), "No Brainer" (command of God), and "Tough Choice" (personal challenge).
There are also profiles of people who have made bold choices throughout history up to the twenty-first century, insightful questions for personal reflection, weekly worship themes, and more.
