The Defense Never Rests is a spiritual autobiography of Parton, describing his journey from unbelief to American Evangelicalism and Campus Crusade staff work, to his true home in the Lutheran church. Second, as a hard-hitting critique of shallow, pop-style worship and theology, it sets forth a Lutheran approach to apologetics.

Read a penetrating critique of American Christianity. Author Craig A. Parton's spiritual journey led him from unbelief into an important leadership position with a well-known ministry. There he became deeply involved in modern American Evangelicalism. He was dismayed to discover that much of modern American Evangelicalism is about personal self-improvement, striving to fulfill laws and rules, and a roller-coaster ride from one spiritual high to the next, always seeking but never fully satisfied. He tells how he discovered the radically liberating message of authentic Reformation spirituality and why he has never turned back. He beautifully describes the joy of a Christ-centered approach to Christianity and explains the importance of explaining and defending the faith once delivered to the saints.
