Publisher's description: How many Christians can defend their faith? I Peter 3:15 exhorts us to be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks about the hope within us. As we prepare our children for adulthood, part of bringing them to maturity should be teaching them biblically sound apologetics. Every Thought Captive was written with that very purpose in mind! Dr. Pratt created the lessons in this book for high school-age students to specifically train them in presuppositional apologetics, a genuine biblical defense of the faith. This book can be used for individual study or with a group. Parents, you may want to study alongside your student, equipping yourself as well as your child!
