The Knowledge of God in the World and the Word
Intellectual support for defending your faith.
Knowledge of God in the World and the Word is a clear and succinct introduction to classical Christian apologetics that also addresses the most common objections to natural theology.
Amid the crisis of authority in our modern and postmodern era, Christians need to be able to point to God's revelation in the natural world in addition to defending God's unique revelation in the Bible and in the person of Jesus Christ.
Classical apologetics takes a two-step approach to commending the Christian picture of reality—first establishing arguments for the existence of God and then defending key items of Christian revelation, including:
- The reliability of the Bible.
- The identity of the historical Jesus.
- The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
With this book, you will discover an easy point of entry into understanding why Christian beliefs about Jesus are true and rational. Perfect for any Christian who wants to articulate a sophisticated and comprehensive defense of their faith.
