Christianity Stands True: A Common Sense Look at the Evidence by Lynn Gardner is now available to Spanish speakers. In addition to English, it is available in Russian, Polish, Czech, and Korean editions and is being translated into Hindi.
Ralph Shead, who is in charge of Spanish projects with Literature and Teaching Ministries, Joplin, Missouri, tells why it is important to be available in Spanish.
Christianity Stands True by Lynn Gardner is a head-on approach to challenge people who do not follow Christ because they think Christianity is not true. Believing the Creator gave us brains so we would use them to think and reason, Brother Gardner shows what is reasonable and what is not. He answers the questions that a skeptic would have before becoming convinced that Jesus really is Lord and that all men are called to be His disciples.
So, why publish a Spanish version of this book? In Latin America (much as in the USA) people hold these beliefs:
- That science has wounded Christianity with a death blow.
- It is just a matter of time until all Christians will hide the fact they are believers, if they choose to still believe.
- Thinking people can’t believe the Bible.
- Hard questions about the Bible can’t be answered.
- You either “feel it in your heart” that the Bible is true or you don’t.
Frankly the “feel it in your heart” foundation for faith is one that does not stand against the storms of life. This book will convince an open-minded person who is willing to investigate the evidence that the Bible is a book from God and that Jesus truly is the Savior who died for our sins and gives us a firm foundation for life.
Literature and Teaching Ministries (LATM) is pleased to be a partner with Lynn Gardner and College Press in presenting this introduction to Christian apologetics to the Spanish speaking world. Target release date: July 15, 2010.
