About this product
- DescriptionIn an interview with Christianity Today in 2012, Ed Stetzer shared that according to LifeWay research among young adults who had attended church regularly for at least a year in high school, 70% stop attending regularly for at least a year between ages 18-22. However, 35% of these had returned to attending twice a month or more by the time they were surveyed for the study. This means that about 4 out of 10 kids leave the church and NEVER RETURN.Here is how leading experts describe our church kids today: They are unarmed and incapable of defending their faith. They possess a faith that cant withstand the scrutiny of trials or intellectual questions. They have a shallow belief system. They lack a robust faith. They haven t learned how to think. They are embarrassingly igrant of our faith. Truth Matters is written directly to this audience, arming them with well-reasoned responses to the accusations that are most likely to appear in their lives, either as upcoming lecture tes and test questions or as inner qualms and questions. Things like: What gives the Bible any authority or credibility? Where is God in a world full of suffering? Why should Christianity be any more believable than any other religious system? And many, many more.Easy to read yet loaded with meat and substance, this book is a level-headed reaction to those who equate Christian faith with blind faith, even those whose subtle or stated goal is to separate students from their religious traditions. Readers will discover the kind of historical information and thinking skills that build a sturdy backbone of confidence in high schoolers and young adults, making them able to defend by reasoned faith what the Bible claims as truth.Loosely organized around the theological skepticism of New York Times bestselling author (and southern college educator) Bart Ehrman, this jam-packed counterclaim is a book that parents will want to buy for their kids, a book that youth and student leaders will want to work through one-on-one and in discipleship groups a book that could prove a lifesaver for young minds and hearts everywhere.
