The West has become permeated with a culture that doesn't 'do' God. Many people assert that we have progressed, while Christians are still clinging to out-dated ideas. In Why We (Still) Believe, fourteen contributors focus on several specific contemporary attacks on Christianity, showing why they 'continue in the faith' (Col.1:23).

Contributors: Andy Bannister, Iver Martin, John Ellis, Vince Vitale, Maher Samuel, John Blanchard, Joe Barnard, David J. Randall, Stefan Gustavsson, Richard Lucas, David Robertson, Nola Leach, Gordon MacDonald, (the late) Gordon Wilson

Instructive, illuminating, challenging, and encouraging, these pages will motivate every reader to a clearer and more confident Christian worldview and lifestyle.

Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St. Peter's Free Church, Dundee

... theoretical and practical, pastoral and apologetical. I filled my copy with underlines and marginal notes, grateful for the "conversation" and the prompts for further reading and writing.

Mark Coppenger, Professor of Christian Apologetics, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

I welcome this collection of short essays that passionately and intelligently present a coherent and cogent case for biblical Christianity in our secular world.

Leonardo De Chirico, Church planter in central Rome

A compelling and clear statement of why Christianity may after all be true and, if true, of the momentous consequences for what we think, who we are and how we live.

James M. Fraser, Former Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Highlands and Islands

... give Christians courage, strengthen biblical convictions, and potentially open many doors to speak of Jesus with credibility, integrity and the kind of intelligent discussion where some evangelism just talks right past the target audience.

Peter Dickson, Regional Team Leader in Scotland, UCCF: The Christian Unions

This volume is a rich, varied and accessible read: confident without being bumptious or triumphalist, and well-argued without being overly intellectual.

Alistair Donald, Chaplain, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh

In a confused culture and an uncertain church, we urgently need this brave and confident clarion call. Confronting the increasingly strident challenges to faith, this is a stimulating, robust and timely response.

Jonathan Lamb, Keswick Ministries, CEO and minister-at-large

Why We (Still) Believe is an insightful, informative compendium of extremely well written essays on contemporary hot-button issues. It will prove a helpful resource for thoughtful Christians seeking to respond in a gospel way in an increasingly secular West.

Jim Turrent, Lead Pastor, Central Baptist Church, Dundee
