Reasons of the Heart (Le coeur a ses raisons (eBook))
** eBook in Kindle format (.mobi) **
Being a Christian and defending our faith is no easier today than it has been yesterday. We are dying to have influence and impact in our society, but we face a credibility gap between the gospel of Christ and our culture. The Word of God shows us, however, that we need apologetics, the art of persuasion that leads to faith.
In this book, the author introduces us to the biblical foundations on which apologetics rests, and then invites us to use several effective methods to reach and persuade the hearts of non-believers.
