Books, Books & More Books

Last night I finished a short read called “Skeptics Answered” by D. James Kennedy. I got it at a young church I recently visited in Bozrah called Revelation Church. The people were friendly and the Spirit of God seems to be moving there. In fact, in many ways it reminded me of Calvary Chapel, where I am currently attending on a regular basis. Anyway, this is not intended to be a church review as much as it is a “book review.” They offered paperback Bibles (NLT) and copies of the aforementioned book by Kennedy to anyone who wanted one. Since it’s a book that addresses an issue that should be of the utmost importance to every follower of Christ (showing skeptics the truth of Christianity), how could I refuse?

The book illustrates the importance of knowing how to face the skeptics and their tireless, uninformed arguments against Christianity — comparing it to other religions and trying to expose the alleged futility of its ancient doctrine of salvation. Practical examples of how to achieve a useful defense and witness are offered. The Bible is defended and shown to be the infallible Word of God through ancient writings and logic. Jesus’ person-hood is confirmed and His identity as God is more than adequately affirmed. I recommend this book to new and old believer alike. It certainly has helped me with practical information and tips on how to deal with those who don’t believe and those who *just might* be ready to come to Jesus. It also takes on some tough issues that we all probably ask in our faith walk. Check it out. I know you can probably still find a copy at Revelation Church in Bozrah, CT.
