"It's all relative."

"Everything is one with the divine."

"Why would a good God send people to hell?"

"The Gospels contradict each other."

In our relativistic society, Christians more than ever before are bombarded by skeptical comments such as these. You hear them on college campuses, in the workplace, and from your neighbors and friends.

That's Just Your Interpretation provides incisive answers to challenges related to truth and reality, worldviews, and Christian doctrine. Similar to his well-received "True for You, but Not for Me," this book by Paul Copan will help you defend your faith, even when you're confronted with the toughest questions. You'll be able to respond with intelligent, powerful answers that direct people toward a personal relationship with God.


"A number of criticisms of Christianity loom large in our day, hindering many people from participating in the Good News. Paul Copan offers a powerful, wonderfully lucid antidote. He manifests the conceptual skills of a fine
philosopher and theologian as well as the heart of a sincere Christian. This combination is potent indeed, illuminating a wide range of pressing issues about the Christian faith. Attentive readers will benefit immensely from Copan's outstanding work." -Paul Moser, professor and chair of Philosophy at Loyola University of Chicago

"That's Just Your Interpretation has something for everyone. The topics are wide-ranging, important and relevant, the presentation is powerful and clear, and the conversational style is engaging. The book is accessible to non-specialists, yet Copan clearly brings to each subject careful research and scholarly reflection, and the notes provide a rich resource for graduate students and professors. The chapter summaries are worth the price of the book. The book is a must-read for those in campus ministry and I cannot think of another book that covers so many topics while maintaining a high degree of quality." -J. P. Moreland, professor of philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University

"Paul Copan is a reliable, engaging, philosophically astute critic of contemporary philosophy and theology. He writes with clarity, force, and insight about the credibility of Christianity. He is at home with challenging popular, cultural misperceptions and critiques of Christianity, as he is with addressing some of the most sophisticated and subtle scholarly debates." -Charles Taliaferro, professor of Philosophy, St. Olaf College

"Beneath the clichés of our culture lie some unsettling questions about God. Paul Copan, with genius and simplicity, uncovers the struggle and constructs his answers on a firm foundation." -Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker
