From the Back Cover
Ideas have consequences, sometimes far-reaching and world-changing ones. The Christian faith contains many volatile truths that challenged--and continue to challenge--the cultural and religious status quo. This fascinating exploration offers a unique look at how the world changed when Christ and his followers came on the scene. In a world where Christian belief and practice are increasingly under fire, 7 Truths That Changed the World will give you the confidence to impact the world for Christ--for good.
"While many Christians are accustomed to hearing that there is good evidence for their faith, far less common are arguments that point out how other worldviews are far inferior in terms of both evidence and explanatory power. Ken Samples develops a cumulative case for Christianity, arguing well that no other thesis even comes close to accounting for what we know about reality."--Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University
"Ken Samples has combined clear thinking with clear writing to give us a guided tour through basic Christian truths. He shows us what those truths are, why we should believe them, and how they make better sense of the world than the alternatives. Thanks be to God for this helpful, encouraging, and challenging book!"--C. John Collins, professor of Old Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary
"7 Truths That Changed the World is a powerful reminder that Christianity is a truth claim that confronts the beliefs and values of our contemporary age at a number of critical points. But Samples is neither confrontational nor combative as he spells out seven aspects of the Christian truth claim that stand in opposition to much of what our non-Christian neighbors hold dear. This is must reading."--Kim Riddlebarger, senior pastor, Christ Reformed Church, Anaheim, California
