Whether debating Marxists, college professors, or Islamic apologists, Josh McDowell's hallmark has always been to walk boldly into enemy territory and speak truth. This book is based on the expectation that, with a growing number of adults becoming increasingly skeptical toward Christianity, there is a need for a solid body of persuasive evidence to be presented to them. This is a sourcebook for doubting seekers as well as current believers who need persuasive information to share with friends. Evidence for Christianity is McDowell's compelling answer to the hard questions so many Christians are afraid to discuss.

This is the best resource book I've ever read for making a defense of Christianity. Every apologist - and every Christian, for that matter - ought to read this book. This book requires a slow, steady, in-depth read for the enormity and the gravity of the evidence to truly sink in and take its effect. In an age where skepticism reigns and doubt is seen as more beneficial than truth, Evidence for Christianity will present the facts in a truly unbiased and open-minded way, allowing the reader to decide for himself where the burden of proof truly lies. Every reader who comes to this material with the genuine, heart-felt desire to know the truth about the claims of Christianity - including the reliability of the Scriptures, Christ's claims of deity, the bodily resurrection of Christ, et. al. - will close its cover, I believe, with a settled assurance of the truths that so many challenge. Truth-seekers - this is your book!
