1 in stockCompare
It can be hard to explain why you believe in God. But images and analogies can provide concrete handles for making the Christian faith more plausible. If someone claims that Christians make a “blind leap of faith,” you can respond, “No, it’s not a blind leap. Faith is like skydiving. You check out your parachute beforehand and make sure it’s secure. You follow the safety instructions. And then you jump. It’s a leap, but it’s not a blind leap. It’s an informed leap.” Experienced evangelist and apologist Rick Mattson has collected dozens of easy-to-use images for explaining Christianity. God’s amazing design of the world? It’s like getting dealt a royal flush over and over again. Why is there evil and suffering in the world? Because it’s a broken world, and things are not how they’re supposed to be. With practical tips on how to interact with your skeptical friends, this book provides a handy toolkit of memorable and instantly usable images for conversation. Find yourself better equipped to give an answer to anyone who asks you about your faith.
