It can be difficult to answer questions about the Christian faith-even for Christians who regularly read their Bibles and attend church. What can they say to a skeptic who questions Christian doctrine or truth claims? What about young Christians who want answers to their tough questions?

Without a Doubt covers questions on everything from the doctrine of the incarnation to religious pluralism, from evolution to moral relativism, with rational answers for even the most stubborn skeptic. Chapters contain charts, relevant biblical texts, and outlines to help readers grasp key ideas relevant to proclaiming the gospel to an unbeliever or discussing doctrine with another Christian.


"Although Ken Samples takes on some very difficult philosophical and theological questions, his responses are clear, carefully reasoned, and accessible. Ken correctly sees the Christian worldview as not simply a loosely connected series of subjective assertions about 'religion,' but a full-orbed worldview, a cluster of interdependent beliefs that has implications for every aspect of the human experience including ethics, political theory, and our study of the natural world. Ken offers not only a description, but a defense, of this worldview, and he does so with a sense that today's Christian community is part of a noble and sophisticated theological tradition that has its roots in an early church that learned at the feet of Jesus himself. Ken's sense of ecclesiastical continuity on doctrinal matters is rare among Christian apologists, even though it is a vital component in any defense of our historic faith. Ken exhibits the virtues of charity and intellectual integrity along with a deep understanding of the sorts of challenges to Christian faith that are offered in our contemporary world and must be met by the serious Christian. Without A Doubt is a wonderful work."--Francis J. Beckwith, Ph.D., associate professor of church-state studies and associate director of J. M. Dawson Institute of Church-State Studies, Baylor University

"Without a Doubt fills a specific void in the apologetic literature. It brings together very careful research with a reader friendly style. The result is an extremely helpful resource for the church. Combined with Samples' considerable experience, the question-and-answer structure make Without a Doubt great text for classes in apologetics and a great read for anyone interested in answers to some of life's most puzzling questions." --J. P. Moreland, distinguished professor of philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, and author of Love Your God With All Your Mind

"In Without a Doubt, Ken Samples treats his readers to a popular, readily accessible handbook of apologetics. His helpful question-and-answer style treats twenty prominent topics, including plenty of follow-up interaction. Rarely does one find such an array of issues and quality responses under one cover, all ready for personal use or in addressing questions or challenges."--Gary R. Habermas, author of The Historical Jesus
