    Concise but Thorough

    Posted by Unknown on Nov. 11, 2017

    I teach an 11th grade apologetics course at a Christian HS. This book had been great. I have the students read a chapter and answer discussion questions over the weekend, and then we discuss the topic the chapter covered that week. These are just small essays (6 to 8 pages). Easy to read, but still a lot of information and insight. I use it as a jumping off place for a class because most topics covered are so vast you could spend a lot of time on it. Howeverr, while it's not exhaustive (nor meant to be), it is pretty thorough for an essay. Covers most of the topics I wanted to address with my class over a year period.

    relevant and useful material

    Posted by Wayne S. Walker on Dec. 23, 2015

    Apologetics is the discipline that rationally seeks to defend the Bible and Christianity through both the presentation of evidence and the use of reason. The readings in Mind Your Faith were designed for an introductory college course in evidences. Author Doy Moyer was a professor of Biblical studies and philosophy at Florida College in Temple Terrace, FL, though he has now left the school and returned to full-time preaching. There are 25 chapters with each one purposefully kept brief and able to stand on its own as an introduction to various fields covered by apologetics.

    Subjects discussed include an introduction to apologetics, the reliability of the Bible, the resurrection and deity of Christ, and the existence of God. The chapter on “Salvation: Is There Only One Way to God?” is especially noteworthy, and the chapters on evolution, post-modernism, and atheism all contain much relevant and useful material. Each chapter has discussion questions, so the book could well be useful for teen or adult Bible classes in church and also for part of a home school apologetics course for high school students. In addition, it can help prepare individual Christians to remove a few stumbling blocks in discussions with their unbelieving friends and neighbors.
