"This book simplifies the truths of Biblical Christianity and makes it easy to understand why believers believe what they do….Great for anyone who is just curious, or for those who want to understand more about the faith."

Distinguished author and attorney Brad Crouser explains that to many of this age, the Christian gospel message is “foolishness.” Perhaps to them it’s not a “respectable” or credible philosophy. It’s something only uneducated, unsophisticated, easily lead, gullible people would accept.
