    How can you know God exists? Why should you trust the Bible? How can you be sure Jesus is the Son of God?

    Do you know what you believe...and why? Regardless of your age or experience, if you're looking for clear, easy-to-understand answers to these important questions, you've come to the right place.

    Trusted theologian and bestselling author Norman Geisler teams up with teacher/speaker Patty Tunnicliffe to provide concrete, step-by-step reasons for why Christians believe what they do. Organized around the most basic questions of faith, Reasons for Belief offers clear evidence for the existence of God, the reliability of the Bible, Jesus' resurrection, and more.

    Whether you're a curious skeptic or a believer wanting to learn how to defend your faith, Reasons for Belief will give you the answers you're looking for.

    ::My Thoughts::
    Reasons for Belief answers some very good questions that we may or may not ask ourselves daily. And if we haven't asked ourselves some of these questions you will be asked these questions:
    How can you know God exists?
    How can you be sure Jesus is the Son of God?
    Why should you trust the Bible?
    Who made God?
    Why are you a Christian?

    As Christians we are sound in our religion, we are sound in God. And yet when these questions are posed to us sometimes we can find ourselves stumbling for answers. As the years go on the Bible and God are questioned more and more. There are many other religions in the world and people want to know why our religion?

    This is just the book for you whether you are looking for the right ways to answer those questions, or if you just want to delve deeper into these questions yourself to get a better grip on Christianity. The book is set up in very clear sections guiding the reader through 10 challenges, such as:

    1. "Real truth does not exist. 'Truth' is just truth to you."
    2. "God does not exist."
    3. "If God exists, he isn't necessarily the God of the Bible."
    4. "Miracles don't happen."
    5. "The New Testament's many errors make it unreliable. It's more like a collection of myths and legends."
    6. "Jesus never claimed to be God."
    7. "Jesus didn't prove he is God."
    8. "Jesus did not rise from the dead."
    9. "The Bible isn't the only true religious book."
    10. "Christianity is too narrow. There are many ways to God besides Jesus."

    Following the challenges are evidential explanations that will help you get a better understanding, or way to defend these questions if they are posed to you. This is by far one of the easiest to understand apologetic books I have read thus far. It would be great for a new believer, or anyone looking to defend your faith. In this constantly changing world of ours we find ourselves defending our faith more and more. This is just the book to help you do that while giving you a deeper understanding yourself, and becoming closer to God as you find these answers.
    At the end of each chapter are sections going over what the reader learned which is a nice touch to the book. All in all I would definitely recommend this to any believer or non-believer who wants to know more about Christianity. It's sharp, to the point, easy to understand, and shows clear evidence that one can't even begin to argue with. A must read.
