CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS! Just saying that word sounds difficult. What is Apologetics? Basically it is knowing what you believe and why you believe it. It is the study and examination of God's word. It is building a solid spiritual foundation in our belief in God. In Mary Jo Sharp's book
"Defending the Faith" you will read about:
- Reasons for knowing why you believe in God
- How your beliefs affect your life
- How your beliefs affect others
- What you can do right now(how to begin discussing beliefs in everyday conversations)
Popular apologist Mary Jo Sharp issues a personal challenge for sisters in Christ to approach their faith on an intellectual level, along with a compelling call for women’s ministries to help women love God with their minds by incorporating apologetics into their programs.
Confident Christianity is a Christian apologetics ministry founded by Mary Jo Sharp that addresses the hard questions of Christianity through research, writing, training and debate.
Mary Jo is a former atheist from the Pacific Northwest who thought religion was for the weak-minded. She now holds a Masters in Christian Apologetics from Biola University and is the first woman to become a Certified Apologetics Instructor through the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Mary Jo is an assistant professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University, on faculty with Summit Ministries, an author with Kregel Publications and B&H Publications, author of the top-selling Bible study, “Why Do You Believe That?” and has produced a new DVD Bible Study with LifeWay Resources. A clear communicator with a heart for people, she finds great joy in sharing the deep truths of her Lord and Savior.
MY REVIEW: I had the privilege of attending a conference where Mary Jo Sharp was the speaker. As Christians we should know what we believe and why. After reading this book I'll be looking into more books on Apologetics and to write down what I believe and why. This is a great book to start with and will really open your eyes to just how important it is to know why we believe what we do.
