A Christian Woman's Guide to Reasons for Faith : Understanding Why You Believe

by Judy Salisbury

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


“I know of no other book on the market that better meets the spiritual needs and fills the intellectual hunger of women who want to see their friends, family, and children in the kingdom of God.” —from the Foreword by Dr. Norm Geisler, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary

“Judy Salisbury is a gifted writer and teacher whose work and life exhibit the ideal combination of intellectual integrity with an attractive, gracious, and winsome personality. Her latest work is an important contribution to the cause of Christ in our world. I highly recommend it.” —Francis J. Beckwith, Associate Professor of Church–State Studies, Baylor University

“Judy Salisbury’s book is a powerful tool for the defense of the faith, one that combines fascinating facts with true spiritual understanding and a refreshing sense of humor. Judy encourages, exhorts, and powerfully persuades us to remember how vitally important it is to understand why we believe.” —Jill Martin Rische, cofounder of Walter Martin’s Religious InfoNet

“There are many books available that teach mothers how to raise their children in a godly way, but this is the first I’ve seen that equips them to answer their children’s spiritual questions with biblical insight and accuracy. The author’s practical, day–to–day illustrations give the reader a deeper understanding of Scripture and a deire to ask the hard questions that will bring God and His Word more into focus. This book will prepare every woman, wife, or mother to answer those one–on–one questions brought to them by their children, friends, family members, or even complete strangers.” —Sally E. Stuart, author of Christian Writer’s Market Guide

“Judy Salisbury’s unique approach to Christian apologetics gives the reader a firm foundation—and in a society of relativism, it’s nice to know there is an Absolute we can cling to. Judy not only reminds us to remember our first love, the Lord Jesus Christ, but also illustrates that love by way of her often humorous and always thought–provoking examples. A must–read for believers and seekers alike.” —Joan Phillips, author of Her Choice to Heal

- Does God exist? Can I trust the Bible?
- Does Christianity oppress women?
- Is there really such a thing as truth?
- How can God allow evil and suffering to exist?
- What difference does Jesus make anyway?
