About the Author

Dr. Alex McFarland, religion and culture expert, is a renowned authority in Christian apologetics (one who explains and rationally defends faith).  He is the author of many books, including the devotional book series for teens: "Stand: Seeking the Way of God", "Unleashing the Wisdom of God" and "Diving into the Word of God".  He has several new books that will be released in 2011-2012, including his newest book that was just released through Broadman & Holman, "10 Questions Every Christian Must Answer".
Dr. McFarland is the host of "Sound Reason", airing across the country on the National Religious Broadcaster's Network and he also co-hosts "Explore the Word" with Marvin Sanders on the American Family Radio Network, airing on nearly 200 stations. He served as the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in North Carolina, has spoken in hundreds of locations throughout the U.S. and abroad, and has been interviewed by all the top Christian and secular media outlets. He spent over two decades training teens and adults in biblical worldview reasoning, much of that time working with Focus on the Family.  Through his Stand Weekends for teens, and the annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics, Dr. McFarland works toward his goal of introducing new audiences to the truths of Christianity.

Book arrived on time and in super condition.

My teenage son (18) said that this book really spoke to him. He said all young men should read this book. It is helping him to stay strong in his faith while attending college. He says it is a challenge and one needs all the support one can get. This book does just that and he is glad I bought it for him.

Our daughter loves this book. It helps support her beliefs in her faith while being in an environment such as college where those beliefs and standards will be challenged.

I give this book as a gift to seniors in High School. None of them have ever complained. I read it before I gave it to them It gives good basic principles to defend your faith.
