Editorial Reviews

James Anderson in this very readable book offers clear biblical answers to the basic questions about God's existence, the Bible as divine revelation and Jesus' identity as God and man, the only God-given Saviour. He does so from what would be termed a 'presuppositional' approach - showing that only on the basis of the truthfulness of Christianity can sense be made of any aspect of the world. Christian truth claims 'fit' the way the world is made. He does so, however, in an attractive way that is mercifully free of the jargon and technicalities that too often obscure sound apologetic arguments. He covers the fundamentals well and provides a clear challenge to readers to trust in Christ. It is a book that can be given to interested enquirers with confidence and which will also help to equip Christians for evangelism.

-- The Covenanter Witness (Magazine of the Reformed Presbyterian Churches of Scotland and Ireland)

James Anderson is one of the best writers in contemporary Reformed theology and apologetics ... This is one of the finest resources available for presenting the rationale of the Christian faith to an unbelieving reader.

-- John M. Frame (Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, Florida)

... writes with the mind of a scholar but the clarity and tone of a letter to a dear friend. His brief and engaging book covers a wide array of topics, from discussions on worldviews and evidence to philosophical arguments to inferences from the biblical record-all in the simplest terms possible.

-- Brian Morley (Professor of Philosophy and Apologetics, The Masters College, Santa Clarita, California)

... The Christian ministry, taken as a whole, must be understood as an apologetic calling. This is why books like Why Should I Believe Christianity? deserve careful reading by pastors and laypeople alike. In this book, believers will find a compelling defense of the Christian worldview and the resources necessary to stand firm in a faithless age.

-- R. Albert Mohler (President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)

This is a book I wish I had had in the mid-1970s when involved in student evangelism. The author is clear and straightforward, moving through why it is important to believe what is true and consistent with reality. I would happily give it to an unbeliever I had been having serious discussions with, which is, I think, the intended audience. Believers who struggle to find what to say to unbelievers would do well to read this. As well as improving their knowledge and understanding of basic gospel truths, it will give them more confidence when seeking to evangelise.

-- Evangelical Times

James Anderson does a masterful job ... This book will be a necessary tool for anyone interested in addressing arguments against Christian truth.

-- K. Scott Oliphint (Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
