With Christianity, and Christian values, under attack from numerous protagonists, it’s probably time that Christians started to defend their Faith, as strongly as the Champions of other Faiths do. Author Paul A. Elwell does just that, in this short, but well-researched book.
Taking care to present his views in a well-ordered manner, Paul offers the reader a series of challenging solutions to the ever-present problems by which Christianity seems to be besieged. Drawing some inspiration from the satirical poem, “Creed” by British journalist, Steve Turner; and some of Ravi Zacharias’ better-known works, Mr. Elwell shows that there are, indeed, people prepared to stand up for traditional Christian beliefs.
Using a sequence of short chapters, intended to flow from one topic to the next, the author shows us the nature of the attacks on Christianity, and counters their arguments with research, and appropriate quotes from the Bible. There are also many references to the breakdown of the family, and society as a whole, and answers to that most important question – “Why?”
Carefully written, well-presented and with clear, supported arguments “The Search…” draws upon Mr Elwell’s own studies in Philosophy and Theology, as well as historical and contemporary sources.
An interesting read!
