Winner of The Gospel Coalition 2019 Book Awards – Evangelism and Apologetics
Rebecca McLaughlin writes with energy, clarity and humour. Author of The Secular Creed, 12 Questions Every Teen Should Ask (And Answer), and Jesus Through the Eyes of Women, McLaughlin is a leading Anglo voice in evangelism and apologetics.
Religion’s decline in the modern world turns out to be a myth.
Christianity is the most widespread global belief system, and promises to remain so well into the future. But for many educated westerners, biblical Christianity is a dangerous idea-challenging some of their deepest beliefs.
Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical study, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. Look more closely, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, the desire for diversity, the success of science, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope.
“This book is compelling reading, not only because of its intellectual rigor and the fact that it is beautifully written but also because of its honest, empathetic humanity. Readers will find themselves expertly guided on a journey that involves them not only in confronting Christianity but also in confronting themselves-their worldviews, hopes, fears, failures, and search for identity and satisfaction-and, finally, in confronting Christ as the altogether credible source of life as God means it to be.” John C. Lennox, Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford
