Description

"I wish this book had been around when I was an atheist and started to seek God. It's a no-nonsense, practical, and insightful guide that will help all those on a quest for spiritual truth. If you're investigating whether there's any substance to the Christian faith, you must read this important book."--Lee Strobel, former award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and bestselling author of more than twenty books

***

Are you tired of getting the standard cookie-cutter answers to questions you aren't even asking? This candid book offers uncommon answers to both classic and bleeding-edge questions you may have about Christians and Christianity, such as

· Is there a God?
· Why do the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus matter?
· Why is there so much suffering in the world?
· Why do Christians think there is only one way to know God?
· How do I reconcile the Bible's picture of Christ's followers with the actual Christians I know who have disappointed me?

Covering such topics as astrophysics, social justice, and acceptance of the LGBTQ community, this one-of-a-kind book is perfect for anyone skeptical of Christianity who values honest answers to their honest questions.
