Christian Worldview For Students Volume 1 eBook
TAKE THE 'WHATEVER' OUT OF YOUR NEXT CONVERSATION ABOUT GOD
How many times have you tried a "meaningful" talk with a fellow student only to have it conclude with some version of "Well, whatever"? Or faced a teacher who made you feel like saying it yourself?
Knowing what you think and why not only bolsters your faith, it just might change someone else's life. The Christian viewpoint makes a world of sense on every subject under the sun, but it gets sold short every day-in classes, textbooks, dorm rooms, and casual conversations wherever you go. If you're ready to say "enough of that!" spend the next 30 days upgrading your thoughts on issues you talk over, study through, or wonder about all the time.
In this delightfully readable book, Brannon Howse captures the essence of biblical thinking on 30 subjects you will encounter. Hard facts, clear-headed logic, and relevant observations help you stand firm-within yourself and at the front line with others-on what Christians believe about topics as diverse as:
- Why "that may be true for you but not for me" just won't cut it;
- The unscientific facts about evolution;
- What makes for true sexual freedom;
- The truth about homosexuality as a lifestyle;
- The very God-oriented basis of American freedoms, government, and politics;
- Why Jesus is still the only way despite the obsession with pluralism that surrounds us.
Whether you want to talk to others or just reassure yourself, give this book a read, and give yourself the gift of confidence in a Christian worldview on…well…whatever.
