Some people boldly claim, “Christianity is fine for some, but it isn’t for me”. Others feel it is just outdated and irrelevant. Still others see it as a negative, or even dangerous, influence in the world. For better or worse, everyone in the Western world has come into contact with Christianity: we all have some opinion on it.
James Anderson writes with a clear, humorous logic which, rather than attempting to persuade or force a positive view of Christianity, simply lays out the arguments backing up the beliefs. He 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.
This is the first installment of The Big Ten: Critical Questions Answered – a Christian apologetics series which addresses ten commonly asked questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Each book, while easy to read, is challenging and thought-provoking, dealing with subjects ranging from hell to science.
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? – and don’t these, and many more examples, mean Christianity doesn’t really work?
Navigating this area can be difficult and confusing. William Edgar, though, 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.

In an age which screams for tolerance, the Gospel is seen as intolerably rigid – Christ can be one way, but not the way. In an effort to be more ‘culturally relevant’, the church is in danger of compromising – substituting the Gospel for the more palatable, non-confrontational road of social reforms. Being good citizens has become a politically correct beast, devouring the core of the church.
Spirit Empowered Mission opens up Acts 1-2, homing in on the real mission and purpose Christ has given the church: reaching the lost.
-“I can’t forgive them”
-“I would never be able to achieve that”
-“It’s just a bridge too far”
God has been receiving rebellious answers from His children ever since Adam and Eve! So often, just like Jonah, we are blinded by our situations, culture, or our own hearts. So often we ignore what we know God is calling us to do … and we are always left feeling incomplete and far from Him.
Anywhere but Nineveh is a thirty day devotional which inspires and focuses the mind, not on our rebellion, but instead on a God who speaks to us and on “One greater than Jonah” Who did not run away. This book is an encouragement and a reminder of the simple truths of our beautiful faith – perfect for mature or new Christians.
