Renowned scholar William Lane Craig offers a readable, rich training manual for defending the Christian faith.
This concise guide is filled with illustrations, sidebars, and memorizable steps to help Christians stand their ground and defend their faith with reason and precision. In his engaging style, Dr. Craig offers four arguments for God’s existence, defends the historicity of Jesus’ personal claims and resurrection, addresses the problem of suffering, and shows why religious relativism doesn’t work. Along the way, he shares his story of following God’s call in his own life.
This one-stop, how-to-defend-your-faith manual will equip Christians to advance faith conversations deliberately, applying straightforward, cool-headed arguments. They will discover not just what they believe, but why they believe—and how being on guard with the truth has the power to change lives forever.
This book takes complex arguments and puts them in terms everyone can understand without watering down the material. This is a great introductory course in a broad range of topics related to philosophical thought. The next book in line would be Craig's signature book, "Reasonable Faith" which dives deeper into each argument presented in, "On Guard".
First part of the book is good, but the majority is a reheated version of "case for Christ," which isn't what atheists generally argue about. What I would have liked is a book jam packed with every stupid thing atheists have postulated about Christianity and Craig's response to them. This is not that book. This is "the evidence for Christ,"using the Bible to argue for itself. Most people who argue with atheists already know everything in this book
A solid apologetics primer
An excellent book, it does a great job of breaking down the arguments and premises in an easily digestible and understandable fashion.
