Product Description

This concise guide is filled with illustrations, sidebars, and memorizable steps to help Christians stand their ground and defend their faith with reason and precision. In his engaging style, Dr. Craig offers four arguments for God's existence, defends the historicity of Jesus' personal claims and resurrection, addresses the problem of suffering, and shows why religious relativism doesn't work. Along the way, he shares his story of following God's call in his own life.

This one-stop, how-to-defend-your-faith manual will equip Christians to advance faith conversations deliberately, applying straightforward, cool-headed arguments. They will discover not just what they believe, but why they believe-and how being on guard with the truth has the power to change lives forever.

This concise guide is filled with illustrations, sidebars, and memorizable steps to help Christians stand their ground and defend their faith with reason and precision. In his engaging style, Dr. Craig offers four arguments for God’s existence, defends the historicity of Jesus’ personal claims and resurrection, addresses the problem of suffering, and shows why religious relativism doesn’t work.

Author Bio

William Lane Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at the Talbot School of Theology. A respected debater, prominent Internet presence (www.reasonablefaith.org), and the author of Reasonable Faith, Dr. Craig is one of the most influential defenders of Christianity in our day. He and his wife, Jan, have two grown children.

Editorial Reviews

"In these pages, you’ll learn the most compelling arguments in favor of Christianity. Not only that, but you’ll also find out how to respond to the most popular objections to those arguments. You’ll discover that On Guard is solidly factual, winsomely personal, consistently practical, and ultimately convincing in its presentation of the case for Christianity."

"There is probably no greater defender of the Christian faith alive today than William Lane Craig. On Guard is Craig’s introduction to the wealth of information, logic, and evidence that powerfully point to the truth of our Christian beliefs. Read it to deepen your own faith and to embolden your confidence in sharing that faith with others."

"On Guard is an excellent summation of how the Christian faith makes sense of the real world in which we all live. ’Speaking the truth in love,’ once again William Lane Craig proves we don’t have to be abrasive to be persuasive."

"William Lane Craig is arguably one of the finest Christian philosophers of our time. His knowledge and skill have placed him on platforms on every continent, engaging the most notable skeptics in dialogue and debate."

"It is hard to overstate the impact that William Lane Craig has had for the cause of Christ. He is simply the finest Christian apologist of the last half century, and his academic work justifies ranking him among the top 1 percent of practicing philosophers in the Western world. Besides that, he is a winsome ambassador for Christ, an exceptional debater, and a man with the heart of an evangelist. I know him well and can say that he lives a life of integrity and lives out what he believes. I do not know of a single thinker who has done more to raise the bar of Christian scholarship in our generation than Craig. He is one of a kind and I thank God for his life and work."

    I just finished this book and at the end of each section, I ask myself the question; what did I just read. I was hoping that Dr. Craig would simplify the answers to objection.

    Dr. William Lane Craig is one of the premiere apologists of our day. He has debated atheists and left them scratching their heads with the profound nature of his arguments. Dr. Craig is especially known for his resurrection of the Kalaam Cosmological Argument and for his arguments for the literal bodily resurrection of Jesus.

    If you are interested in apologetics, start here before engaging Craig's other works, especially his masterpiece "Reasonable Faith." If you are able to master the arguments in this work, then you will be better prepared for the articulate and detailed arguments given in "Reasonable Faith." I highly recommend this book for everyone. This book is good for those of all ages and all backgrounds.

    For the Christian, your faith will be strengthened. For the skeptic, many of your questions will be answered. For the atheist, your beliefs will be challenged.
