The defense of the Faith is an old and honorable Christian tradition, and should be part of every Christian's repertoire. To aid both fledgling apologists and seasoned veterans in this, R. C. Sproul has produced a book both simple in language and complex in depth to speak to the Church as a whole. Divided into 6 sections, each addressing crucial elements in the study of apologetics, Sproul brings the reader through the full spectrum, from the role apologetics plays in a saving faith through foundational studies of knowledge, reason, and the existence of God, discussing how secular philosophers have misunderstood the Faith, and finally to a presentation of a case for biblical authority. In a manner honed by years of being on the forefront of applied apologetics and a heart for equipping the Church, Defending Your Faith clearly illustrates the need for authentic and fearless defenders of the Faith. Unabridged. Narrated by Robertson Dean. 6 CDs. 7.5 hours.
There is a widespread belief that reason and faith are incompatible and opposed to each other. Faith is viewed as subjective, emotional, a crutch for those who find the real world too hard. Though many of the world’s finest minds hold this view, the Bible teaches that it is the fool who says there is no God. // Dr. R. C. Sproul clearly and simply argues that at its core Christianity is rational. He focuses on defending the basic truth claims for two of the most crucial issues of apologetics: God’s existence and the Bible’s authority. // In this primer of apologetic thought, Dr. Sproul affirms four logical principles that are necessary for all real discussion and teaches you how to defend your faith in a faithless world. Using the writings of church fathers and philosophers throughout the ages, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith. // The defense of the faith is not a luxury or an intellectual vanity. It is a task appointed by God that you should be able to give a reason for the hope that is in you as you bear witness before the world.
