How can anyone claim to have the truth? Can anyone really prove the existence of God? Isn't it naive to believe in miracles? Doesn't evolution prove that the Bible's creation story is false? If God is so powerful and good, why is there so much suffering in the world? These are crucial questions that many Christians wrestle with. They are also the type of questions asked by skeptics of the faith. 

Why I Am a Christian offers compelling answers that will free Christians from doubt and clear away obstacles to faith for unbelievers. Beginning with the topics of moral relativism and knowable truth, the book progresses to questions about belief in God, the reliability of the Bible, and the identity of Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of God. It concludes with three chapters on what it means to make a commitment to follow Christ.

The contributors to this revised edition are expert witnesses for the Christian faith. They include an astronomer, a mechanical engineer, a trial lawyer, a religious historian, a philosopher, a Jewish Christian, a former atheist, a former skeptic, and a former Muslim--who contributes a new chapter.
