Publisher's Description

One of the top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals ( Christianity Today, 2006) "After 2,000 years, no question is going to bring Christianity crashing." Do science and Scripture conflict? Are miracles possible? Is Christian experience real? Why does God allow suffering and evil? These are just a few of the twelve most common intellectual challenges to faith that Paul E. Little encountered during his twenty-five years of speaking and teaching in the university. These questions need solid answers, and that's what a million people have already found in this clear and reasonable response to the toughest questions posed to Christian belief. Sprinkling in a few "sure-fire jokes" and other humorous illustrations, Little uses these questions to jog readers' thinking and help them examine their present worldviews, ranging from scientific determinism to rabid existentialism. By thinking through the most common challenges to Christian faith, believers will be prepared to answer others out of the wellspring of their own certainty. This edition, revised and updated by Marie Little in consultation with experts in science and archaeology, provides twenty-first-century information and offers solid ground for those who are willing to search for truth. Including a study guide for individuals or groups, Know Why You Believe is the classic answerbook on Christian faith.

Editorial Reviews

One of the "Top 50 Books That Have Shaped Evangelicals"
"As a student, I love Paul's teaching. As an apologist, I am grateful for his impact. Know Why You Believe is a valuable piece of work."
"Paul Little gives brightly understandable answers to questions about biblical Christianity. He shows there is a reasonable base to believe that Jesus Christ offers to give us connection to the living God."
"I've worn out multiple copies of this book and lost count of how many I've given away to seekers and new believers. It's a classic."
"Scholarly, articulate, simple."
"This book canters brightly through the border-country between conviction and questioning."
"When I lost my childhood faith, I needed a book like Paul Little's Know Why You Believe."
"Shortly after my conversion in 1968 I was given a copy of Know Why You Believe, and it was what sparked my own lifelong interest in Christian apologetics. Through the years its quality has been demonstrated by its longevity. Now in this updated and expanded version, Paul Little's book can continue to provide hope and help to a new generation of truth-seekers."

    This book came highly touted as a great combination of education and apologetics, and it is indeed just that. I give this book as a gift to people whom I feel drawn to witness to in a way that hits effectively from a worldly standpoint as well as a spiritual standpoint. It is an easy and enjoyable read, and something I go back to again and again to strengthen my faith and my witness. Thank God that He exists, and this books illustrates and reveals this fact in many different ways!

    I am using the book for a small group study in my church. They are not the typical audience for this book - college students - they are farmers, but have latched onto the contents very well. The book lends itself easily to this study. I may go on to other Paul Little books after this is complete.

    Even though this book was written over 35 years ago, it is still relevant. My Group has enjoyed the great discussion, thus far.

    Little's book is a good introduction to Christian Evidences, devoting a chapter to most of the major areas that are covered in Christian Evidences. I am taking a group of 20 Christians through this book right now. They are enjoying the study. This is a good book to hand to anyone, Christian or not, who struggles with doubt about the authenticity of the Christian faith.

    This book helped to strengthen my faith and cleared up some of the tough questions. Such as "How do you know.... there is a God, Jesus rose from the dead, the bible is accurate and not a legend, etc." This is also a great book on how to defend your faith. Important to note too is: It's easy to read!
