  • Erosion of Inerrancy in Evangelicalism

    $19.99

    Examines recent postmodern efforts to redefine the traditional evangelical view of scriptural authority and counters with sound logic that supports inerrancy.

    Due to recent popular challenges to evangelical doctrine, biblical inerrancy is a topic receiving an increasing amount of attention among theologians and other scholars. Here G. K. Beale attempts vigorously and even-handedly to examine the writings of one leading postmodernist, Peter Enns, whose writings challenge biblical authority. In support of inerrancy, Beale presents his own set of challenges to the postmodern suppositions of Enns and others.

    How can the Bible be historically inaccurate while still serving as the authoritative word on morality and salvation? Beale concludes that it cannot, and his work will aid all who support biblical inerrancy in defending their position against postmodern attacks. This is an issue that affects the entire body of Christ.

  • Why the Bible?

    $4.99

    The Bible claims to be a book that records the words and thoughts of God himself. That is a big claim. If that claim is true, it certainly explains why so many enthusiastically read its stories, religiously memorize its verses, and passionately proclaim its message. But if that assertion is not true, then scores of people have been profoundly misled, and perhaps should begin looking for divine wisdom elsewhere. In Why the Bible? Mike Fabarez explores the claim that the Bible is God’s communication to mankind, and seeks to concisely answer the question of why millions of people through the centuries have put so much stock in this ancient book. Dr. Fabarez then goes on to provide practical direction for those who say they embrace the Bible’s divine origins.

  • I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist

    $14.00

    To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical.  Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.

    Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

    *How can we trust the gospels since they were written so long after Jesus lived?

    *How can we believe a Bible that is full of internal contradictions with itself and external contradictions with science?

    *Doesn’t archaeology disprove the Bible?

    *Why should we believe the books that are in the Bible, since many good ones were left out, like the Gospel of Thomas?

  • Can We Trust The Gospels

    $12.79

    The Gospels-Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John-tell the story of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ while he was on earth. But how do Christians know if they are true? What evidence is there that the events actually happened? This accessible introduction to the historical and theological reliability of the four Gospels, written by apologist and scholar Peter J. Williams, presents evidence from a variety of non-Christian sources, assesses how accurately the 4 accounts reflect the cultural context of their time, compares different accounts of crucial events, and considers how these texts were handed down throughout the centuries. Written for the skeptic, the scholar, and everyone in between, this book answers common objections raised against the historicity of the Gospels in order to foster trust in God’s Word.

  • Scientism And Secularism

    $11.19

    Scientism-the view that hard sciences such as chemistry, biology, physics, and astronomy are the only legitimate sources of genuine knowledge about reality-has played a central role in the increasing secularization of society. But this belief marginalizes religion and makes it merely a matter of private opinion. This book by celebrated philosopher of science J. P. Moreland exposes the inadequacy of scientism by demonstrating its self-defeating nature and 7 important truths about our world that science can never explain. It then equips Christians to recognize and respond to scientism’s harmful presence in different aspects of culture, emboldening their witness to biblical Christianity. Finally, as an alternative to scientism, Moreland presents evidence for how an integration of theology and science is the only feasible path forward.

  • Why Does God Allow Evil

    $11.24

    Grasping This Truth Will Change Your View of God Forever

    If God is good, why is there so much evil in the world? Christians and non-Christians alike struggle with the concept of a loving God who allows widespread suffering in this life and never-ending punishment in hell. We wrestle with questions such as…
    *Why do bad things happen to good people?
    *Why should we have to pay for Adam’s sin?
    *How can eternal judgment be fair?

    Clay Jones, a professor of Christian apologetics at Biola University, takes an unflinching look at the Bible’s response to these questions and more. As you explore what Scripture truly says about the nature of evil, you’ll discover afresh the contrasting abundance of God’s grace, the overwhelming joy of heaven, and the extraordinary destiny of believers.

    Why does God allow evil? The answer might surprise you-and bring you to your knees.
