LifeGivers Apologetics equips Christian women with the kwledge and skills they need in order to share evidences supporting the truth claims of her Christian faith. As a Christian apologist and researcher pursuing doctoral studies in apologetics, Tricia has mined numerous sources to bring the reader current and relevant philosophical, scientific, archaeological and historical information that addresses the most common issues arising in conversations with unbelievers. Specifically, the book explains good reasons for believing that truth is objective, that God is more than an imaginary friend conjured by weak-minded people who need an emotional crutch, that the rational person can believe in the possibility of miracles, that the New Testament is a trustworthy document, and that in the New Testament Jesus Christ t only claimed to be God, but also proved that He was God. Tricia also contends that as God-designed nurturers and relational beings, women bring to apologetics conversations an intimacy and warmth that opens doors to discussions about the deepest concerns of unbelievers and struggling Christians. To assist women in navigating conversations, she shares basic communication skills, many of which she learned in her years as a registered nurse. At the end of the book, the gospel message is clearly explained so that the reader can kw how to tell someone exactly how to trust Jesus as Savior. Endtes at the back of the book provide information on a wealth of resources the reader can access to further enhance learning. LifeGivers Apologetics is a must-have resource that every Christian woman should keep on her bookshelf as a ready reference.
