Why I Am A Christian

Why I Am A Christian

First published in 2001, Why I Am A Christian is now available in a revised trade paper edition. Its all-star cast of contributors, including Gary Habermas, William Lane Craig, Ravi Zacharias, Peter Kreeft, and J. P. Moreland, offer popular and accessible defenses of essential aspects of orthodox Christian belief. Now with a new chapter on “Why I Am Not a Muslim” by Ergun Mehmet Caner, an ex-Muslim, Why I Am a Christian is an even more helpful resource in our global times. It also now includes a thorough subject index for easy reference and a useful apologetics resource list.

Perhaps you or someone you know has questions and sneaking suspicions about some of the claims of Christianity. Can Christianity really stand up to intellectual scrutiny? Haven’t scientists and historians proven that the Bible is full of myths and errors? How can anyone claim to have the truth?

This book faces these doubts and misconceptions head on and proves that the Christian faith is not only reasonable and true but that it is the most intellectually and existentially coherent option among all others. Christianity is both sensible to the head and satisfying to the heart.
