Every Christian will eventually encounter hard questions, especially those who share their faith with skeptics and seekers.  Renowned Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig tackles the most common questions and objections raised today, including:How can I be sure God exists? How does modern science relate to Christian faith? Why does God allow evil? What evidence do we have that Jesus rose from the dead?What about the attacks of the New Atheists? Drawing from real questions submitted to his popular Reasonable Faith website, Dr. Craig provides rational and biblically based answers that demonstrate the intellectual soundness of the Christian faith.  Dr. Craig and coauthor Joe Gorra also provide seasoned advice for how to approach answering hard questions in the context of the church, personal ministry, and in online environments.  Special features include tools for small group studies of the material and a previously unreleased transcript of a debate between Dr. Craig and atheist philosopher Michael Tooley.Whether you're struggling to respond to tough objections or looking for answers to your own intellectual questions,A Reasonable Responsewill equip you with sound reasoning and biblical truth.
