Over a decade ago, Apologetics Press produced a book titled A Study Course in Christian Evidences that became one of our most popular offerings. Over the years, however, new information became available in almost every area of study with which that volume dealt. Accordingly, Dr. Brad Harrub (the director of scientific information at Apologetics Press) and I decided to completely rewrite the book. In the process of updating it, we ended up enlarging it in order to include much more information than was contained in the original edition.
We believe that the new volume, Investigating Christian Evidences, will be an extremely valuable tool for those who are looking for information in the areas of Christian apologetics and Christian evidences. The book contains three chapters that present evidence (from cause and effect, design, and morality) for the existence of God, two chapters on the inspiration of the Bible (including one on The Book’s scientific foreknowledge), two chapters that respond to the arguments most frequently used by evolutionists to defend their theory, plus individual chapters on the problem of evil, pain, and suffering, the Sonship and deity of Christ, and the historicity of Genesis 1-11 (including a heavily illustrated chapter titled “Walking Amidst the Dinosaurs,” which, we suspect, will be one of the most fascinating and popular sections of the book). Closing out the book are two important chapters on what a person must do to be saved, and the uniqueness and singularity of Christ’s heaven-sent, spirit-filled, blood-bought church.
The book contains 13 chapters, along with discussion questions for each lesson, which makes it ideal for use in college classes or group Bible studies. In addition, each chapter is extensively referenced, so that those students who wish to do additional research will have the source materials at their fingertips to aid them in further study of the various topics that are covered within the text.
Because we have published other volumes on Christian evidences that are suitable for use by junior high and high school students (such as Kyle Butt’s two best-selling books, Out With Doubt and A Matter of Fact), Investigating Christian Evidences has been designed specifically for college students and adults, both of whom, we believe, will benefit tremendously from the exhaustive review of the subject matter.
Dr. Harrub and I wanted each of the chapters in this new book to be able to stand “on its own,” so to speak. Individually, any one of the chapters represents a powerful weapon in the apologetics arsenal. Taken together, however, the 13 chapters provide an incredibly valuable tool that can be used to help someone build a personal faith in the God of the Bible, His Son, and His Word. And, in addition to building faith, the book also is intended to aid Christians in defending their faith. Once you have seen the book’s contents, I have no doubt that you will agree that it will be useful in both arenas.
As with all Apologetics Press materials, the content of Investigating Christian Evidences is scientifically accurate and biblically sound.
