About the Book

Why do Christians believe what they believe? What is it about Christianity that makes us believe we have the one and only way to heaven? After all, would a loving and caring God actually send somebody to hell just because they happened to follow a teacher who got a few facts wrong? What about the area of science? How can we claim with confidence that the universe had a beginning and will have an end when renowned scientists and physicists have claimed that the universe is eternal? If there is no God, where do ethics and morality come from, and on what do we base our concept of right and wrong?


In Why? A Believer’s Guide to Defending the Faith, author Doug Taylor helps Christians find the answers to those and other questions. This guide is divided into six main sections: understanding the Apologetics; determining if the Bible supports or prohibits us from looking for evidences of God and His work; basic differences between the occult, cults, and false religions; how the church and atheism are obstacles to Apologetics today; and a look at positive supports for the Christian worldview and Christianity at large. The final section is a recap and challenge to the reader moving forward.


Written in easy-to-understand, unintimidating language, Why? is designed for new and veteran Christians. It will help prepare all Christians to explain to others the truths of their faith.
