"It's so easy to see the passion behind your words when you speak about our Lord. And now that I've read Reasons for Hope, your life story reflects that passion. This is such an amazing story of hope, and urges readers to take belief in the Bible seriously and to be intentional about passing on that legacy to the next generation. Now more than ever, Christians need to know what they believe, why they believe it, and then be able to effectively communicate that in love. Reasons for Hope has encouraged me to do just that and is a book that I would recommend to every Christian." -Matt Butler, NewSong
"Carl's new book captures his heart for the lost and his sharp mind on critical issues facing our world. He knows what he's talking about and is able to teach others with humor, a quick wit, and solid scientific information. His story will inspire you and strengthen your faith." -Kirk Cameron, actor and TV cohost
"It is difficult for me to differentiate between what I have gained from your book, and what I have gained from my personal relationship with you. You truly do practice what you preach! The two most important pieces of information I will take away from this book: stay bold and be prepared to give a defense of your faith. This book will inspire Christians to do just that. Your story, from your checkered childhood to your resistance to God's path for you, is a strong reminder that God has a plan for us all. Your explanation of how the Bible fits into the modern-day world, tackling issues such as evolution and race, is crucial to today's Christian." -Rich "Ace" Franklin, three-time UFC MMA Champ
