Has the Bible Been Changed Book Excerpt:

Muslims all over the world are ignoring the message of the New Testament because their teachers say its text has been corrupted. Yet very few of them have checked to see whether what their teachers say is true. David Byle, chairman of the Bible Correspondence Course in Turkey (bccturkey.org) What does it take to persuade an entire Islamic nation to recall and rewrite their religious education materials in order to no longer teach that the Bible has been changed? Only one thing: the Qur’an itself. The Qur’an clearly states that the Bible has not been changed and, even more shockingly, says that anyone who teaches that the Bible has been changed is in fact doomed to hell. This book, Has the Bible Been Changed?, was the reason that in 1996 the Department of Religious Affairs in Turkey recalled their existing teaching materials. As you explore these pages, you will see exactly what the Qur’an says that is so powerful that even Islamic leaders are caused to reverse course. But this book is not persuasive with many words. Rather, it shows the reader Scripture verses and other pertinent facts that will help lead one to the ultimate Truth, that there is indeed only one God, and the way to Him is through His Son, Jesus Christ. It behooves you to read this book to know that you can put your faith and confidence in the entire Bible, that it is indeed the unchangeable, inerrant Word of God. And we did give Moses the guidance and made the Children of Israel to inherit the Scripture. A guide and a reminder for men of understanding (Mu’min 40:53-54).

The Unshakable Truth Book Excerpt:

The name Josh McDowell promises real-life, on-the-street Christian apologetics. In his first Harvest House book, Josh joins his son Sean to draw on his life’s work and comprehensively address a vital issue: why an entire generation of young Christians—and millions of older believers—is confused about what they believe, why they believe it, and how it’s relevant. The Unshakable Truth is uniquely positioned for younger Christians because it presents apologetics relationally, focusing on how Christianity’s doctrines affect relationships. The authors... ground every assertion in the overarching story of creation, incarnation, and re-creation. distill 12 crucial “faith statements”—for example, “A personal Creator God exists.” explain why each statement is trustworthy, how it applies to real life, and—using examples, stories, and experiences—what its relevance is. A spiritual gold mine for parents, youth workers, pastors—anyone wanting to reveal Christianity’s relevance to today’s life and culture.

Evidence for the Resurrection Book Excerpt:

When Jesus died on the cross, it seemed that all had been lost. Death had won. But after three days in a rich man's tomb, Jesus appeared...alive! The news was so shocking that his followers refused to believe it until they saw him with their own eyes and touched his wounds with their own hands. Then Jesus made an amazing claim: In the future, they too would have resurrected bodies like his, bodies that would never deteriorate, age, or perish. They would have new life without death or pain in the presence of a loving God forever. But can we really believe His promise? For that matter, can we really believe that the promise was made by a man who rose from the dead? In this fascinating look at the claims of the Gospel writers and 2,000 years of believing Christians, bestselling author Josh McDowell and his son Sean examine the compelling evidence and conclude that Jesus Christ conquered death and the grave. In clear, concise, and accessible chapters, Josh and Sean present the facts about the resurrection and what it means for readers today.

Stand Your Ground Book Excerpt:

"My freshman year of college was a battle," writes Katie, a college student and a strong Christian. The transition from high school to college is one of the most pivotal times in a young person's life. After departing from under the protective wings of their parents, young adults often have trouble holding firm to the Christian faith. Stand Your Ground is an introduction to apologetics for young adults in high school or college. The book includes thirteen chapters that confront the overwhelming intellectual attacks Christian college students face on university campuses. Dean Hardy takes readers on a spiritual and intellectual journey, addressing such issues as the nature of truth and reality, the investigation of other worldviews, the evidence for Christianity, critics' arguments against Christianity, and the relationship between apologetics and evangelism.

The Shortest Leap Book Excerpt:

All worldviews require a leap of faith, but not all leaps of faith are the same. A “one-stop shop” for the rational evidence for Christianity. The Shortest Leap presents the scientific, historical, biblical, and explanatory underpinnings of the Christian faith, demonstrating that faith in Jesus requires the shortest leap. In addition to providing proactive evidence for Christianity, The Shortest Leap responds to the numerous shots fired at biblical Christianity by atheists, critics of Christianity, and other skeptics. The Shortest Leap answers a wide range of difficult questions, including: • Is the Bible consistent with the findings of cutting edge, secular science? • Was there really a man named Jesus, or is he just a myth? • And even if he did exist, aren’t the events of Jesus’ life and his teachings as described in the New Testament merely fabrications of the earliest Christians? • Does the historical evidence support the claim that Jesus rose from the dead? • To understand who Jesus really was, why shouldn’t we consider other documents outside the Bible, such as the Gnostic gospels? • Why were some documents excluded from the New Testament? • Did Jesus really claim to be God, or did the earliest Christians just want to believe that? • Is the Old Testament still relevant? Does it really point to Jesus hundreds to thousands of years before he lived? • How does the salvation by grace of Christianity differ from the salvation by works of all other religions? • Why can’t I just believe in the Jesus that I like the best? • How can I be sure I have eternal life? No other apologetics book on the market answers such a wide range of questions. Whether you are a non-Christian exploring the reasons people believe Jesus is God, or you are a Christian wanting to grow deeper in your faith or share your faith with the others, The Shortest Leap is the perfect book for you. Combining the best of dozens of books under one cover, The Shortest Leap presents a concise and convincing summary of the main arguments supporting the truth of biblical Christianity.

Quid Pro Quirk Book Excerpt:

Have you ever read a Bible passage that seemed to contradict other Scriptures, or simply didn't make sense? Have you ever wanted to answer a skeptic who insisted the Bible was full of errors, but didn't know how to respond? Do you hesitate to share your faith because you don't know what you believe or why you believe it? Quid Pro Quirk seeks to resolve such issues and help you share the reason for the hope that is within you (1 Peter 3:15). In a legal context, the Latin phrase quid pro quo means to exchange "something for something," or "this for that." Quid Pro Quirk uses a courtroom setting to exchange plausible explanations for alleged Bible quirks. The compelling explanations can give you confidence as you add to your knowledge and understanding of God's Word. In Quid Pro Quirk, the prosecution begins with an opening statement establishing the background behind each alleged quirk and then finishes with a specific charge. The defense responds, using the Bible and other sources to dispute the charge. After considering all of the evidence, you act as judge and jury in rendering an informed verdict. Quid Pro Quirk's explanations are as brief and concise as possible, and yet remain faithful to the letter and spirit of God's Word in responding to a broad spectrum of charges. A handy reference source for the layman that avoids dry and endless rhetoric, Quid Pro Quirk focuses on the key facts that can bless you in your quest for God's truth.
