A skeptic taunted a Christian, “Believers are touchy and offended when asked why they believe in Christianity because the awkward truth is that they have no reason, they just feel like believing.”
We do have good evidence for believing that Chistianity is true. Faith is not “believing what you know isn’t so,” as a child misunderstood. Faith is trust based on sufficient evidence.
Purpose and Summary
Christianity Stands True presents evidences that support the truth of Christianity. The purpose of this book is to give a common sense, non-technical presentation of evidences supporting the truth of Christianity. An honest seeker will learn the basis of the Christian faith. The Christian’s confidence that Christianity is true will be strengthened.
The first six chapters state a case for Christianity based on evidence for the historical reliability of the New Testament records. Historically rooted, supernatural evidences summit the claims of Jesus of Nazareth that He was God in flesh. Because He is deity we can accept Jesus’ teaching that the Old Testament is the Word of God and that the New Testament is the Word of God in fulfillment of His promises to the apostles.
The last four chapters trace two confirming lines of evidence. Evidence of design in the physical universe, the human body and the plant and animal world point to a Divine Designer. Christianity rings true in life as it meets the needs of the human heart for meaning, freedom, peace, love and hope. Christianity does in fact stand true.
