Christians are called to defend the faith. Saint Paul put it beautifully when he described himself as “put here for the defense of the gospel” (Philippians 1:16b). But that doesn’t mean we can’t benefit from guidance and support, not only for ourselves but for all ages. So please welcome onto the scene Called to Defend: An Apologetics Handbook for the Middle School Student.
Look at what timely book I just discovered! Called to Defend: An Apologetics Handbook for the Middle School Student is a very new release from a CUW (or as I still think of it, “Mequon”!) grad, Valerie Locklair. I haven’t read it. I haven’t seen it, but I very much love the idea and so far all reviews are very positive. One review, in particular, I see is from Dr. Angus Menuge, who I trust as a Lutheran and scholar.
New find from a Lutheran novelist and it looks amazing! Scrooge and the Question of God’s Existence, written by Steve Luhring, is about doubts about God and the Christian faith. It presents the marvelous scenario, “What would happen if Scrooge’s Christmas ghosts had given time and attention to addressing the existence of God, suffering, and purpose?” It uses a holiday classic as a forum to ponder common apologetic concerns!
Maybe I’m on a kick, thinking up ideas for Old Testament Bible studies. Anyway, I think one should be done on the Conquest of Canaan.
