Does the Bible have authority in a world committed to relative truth?
The understanding of absolute, objective truth has been largely lost. Spend just a few minutes discussing politics or religion and youll hear responses like, There is no truth! or That may be true for you, but not for me. Understanding the Faith dares to wade into the middle of the controversy with chapters such as:
- Is God Christian?
- Isnt Claiming Truth Intolerant?
- Is the Bible Anti-Science?
Backed by Summit Ministries half century of teaching, this is your definitive resource for deepening and defending your faith. It is a required resource for every Christians bookshelf.
Ideas have consequences! For more than fifty years young Christians have been trained by Dr. David Noebel and Summit Ministries to understand the times, to recognize both the ideas that permeate our world cultures and their consequences as well as the appropriate biblical response. Now co-authored by Dr. Jeff Myers, the course has been revised and expanded into a series in 2016. Understanding the Faith is a survey of biblical faith and Christian apologetics that features key questions/issues to address when defending and sharing personal faith with an unbelieving world.
