Why I Believe (Paperback)Chip Ingram
Why I Believe: Straight Answers to Honest Questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity
Well-respected pastor and Bible teacher addresses some of the most confounding questions associated with the Christian faith: Is there an afterlife? Can we trust the Bible? Did the resurrection really happen?
In our post-Christian, pluralistic society, responding to the perception that Christians are prejudiced, anti-intellectual, and bigoted has become a greater challenge than ever before. The result is often intimidation, withdrawal, and even doubts among God's people about what we really believe. Bestselling author and teaching pastor at Living on the Edge, Chip Ingram, wants to change that.
In Why I Believe, he gives compelling answers to questions about
- the resurrection of Christ
- the evidence of an afterlife
-the accuracy and intellectual feasibility of the Bible
- the debate between creation and evolution
- the historicity of Jesus
- and more
The solid, biblical, logical answers he shares will satisfy the honest doubts that every believer experiences now and then, and will provide practical, thoughtful answers that can be shared with family and friends. This is the perfect resource for churches, small groups, and individuals who long not only to really know what and why they believe, but also to be equipped to explain the intellectual justification for their faith in everyday language.
