"This book provides Christians with a valuable tool in the ongoing attacks against the Christian faith by opposing worldviews. Best of all, it provides clear-minded teaching that can be understood and articulated by youth and adults alike."
- Laird Crump, Headmaster, Shades Mountain Christian School, Hoover, Alabama
"Dollar and Pinkerton's book is solidly biblical and written in a way that makes apologetics interesting and accessible to high school students. Christian educators, including home school parents, should consider making this a primary text to help ground their students in the faith."
- Glenn Waddell, President, Birmingham Theological Seminary
"With urgency in their writing a heart for truth, Jason Dollar and Bradly Pinkerton loudly communicate the need for sound doctrine by equipping the reader to defend the truth. While some authors are merely noting a falling away from truth, Jason and Bradley take action by offering an answer to the doubtful and a hope to the curious. What a great book for any generation who is remotely interested in fulfilling Scripture by preparing a defense, a reason for this hope that lies within us."
- Chris Altman, Minister to Youth, Roopville Road Baptist Church, Carrolton, Georgia

1.) The language was TOO informal--not what I expected in a text book.
2.) The writers wrote with the assumption that ALL evangelicals are--or ought to be--Calvinist in their approach to theology.
3.) They left no room for those with the Wesleyan-Arminian perspective, or even for those who are Armininian but not Wesleyan.
The seemingly difficult apologetic arguments are presented clearly through real life illustrations that make the presuppositions of the arguments come alive. Arguments in this volume are primarily made using scripture as the ultimate source which equips and provides students with truths directly from the Bible that they can share with their friends.
Dollar and Pinkerton do an excellent job of raising objections to Christianity and responding to them in a concise and convincing manner. The authors also provide a simple survey of other worldview systems which provides an excellent introduction for further study. Contend is an excellent resource for introducing students to the seemingly complex arena of apologetics. Dollar and Pinkerton help bring this subject to life and to equip students to defend and share their faith with others.
This is a very easy to use apologetic book as it takes difficult subjects and helps make them simple to understand. I believe that it is a wonderful resource for youth groups, Sunday Schools, family devotions, and personal use. This excellent book can also be an effective resource for witnessing when a Christian teen reads it with a non-Christian friend. I encourage teens or parents to pick this up.(also see my book: Who Made Truth? Kids Can Prove God Exists)or Letter to an Atheist Nation: Presupositional Apologetics Responds To: Letter to a Christian
