Reasons We Believe will reinforce your personal faith and will provide you with a clear, concise, evangelistic tool to help you share that faith with others.

In an age of cynics and skeptics, Christianity is constantly under attack. Believers need resources that defend the veracity of their faith. They are searching for clear, concise, and credible answers to both doubts of their own and objections from their unbelieving friends.

Nathan Busenitz provides such resources to believers. Reasons We Believe confirms and strengthens the faith of believers by demonstrating the reliability of the twofold authority on which Christianity rests: the Word of God and the person of Jesus Christ. Reasons builds a biblical foundation for the authority of the Bible and then shows how extra-biblical evidence corresponds with and thereby attests to what the Bible claims.

This study seeks to reinforce the faith of Christians while also providing them with a straightforward evangelistic tool for reaching non-Christians.

“A wholesome, faith-affirming volume. It will appeal to Christians who recognize many of the convictions they hold regarding the Christian faith, but who have not seen this many reasons all organized carefully under one cover.”
Gary R. Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor and Chair, Department of Philosophy and Theology, Liberty University

“Comprehensive and concise, qualities one rarely finds in the same volume. The book maintains a remarkable focus on Scripture itself. It shows how Christians can make use of traditional evidences and arguments within the Bible’s own framework of thought.”
John Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary; author of Apologetics to the Glory of God

“One of the most helpful apologetic guides to appear in a long time. Hugely helpful and highly recommended!”
Ron Rhodes, President, Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries

“We live in a day when authors prostitute their scholarship to become rich on sensationalist books about so-called ‘lost Christianities’ and ‘lost Scriptures.’ Nate Busenitz’s sane and sound treatment of Christian evidences comes as a breath of fresh air.”
William Varner, Professor of Biblical Studies, The Master’s College; author of The Messiah: Revealed, Rejected, Received

User Review  - Eric Forman -

Dr. Busenitz does a first rate job in presenting compelling reasons to believe. These come from the scientific, philosophical, archeological, and biblical arenas. I have used many of these reasons in teaching my students and really appreciate both his breadth and depth. Read full review
