"Hey, it's all relative."
As our society becomes more and more relativistic, Christians can find it harder and harder to confidently articulate the foundations of their faith. Because we live in a "culture of truth decay," as Paul Copan calls it, Christians confront more and more tough questions when they seek to share their faith with others.
In That's Just Your Interpretation: Responding to Skeptics Who Challenge Your Faith, author Paul Copan offers clear and useful answers to of common questions on the topics of truth and reality; theism, pantheism/Eastern religion, and naturalism; and doctrinal issues such as the incarnation and truth of Scripture. In each of 22 chapters, Copan provides concise answers and summary points for countering common arguments. Copan brings his experience as a Christian apologist and professor of philosophy and ethics to bear in writing a book that clear enough for beginners, yet entirely intellectually, philosophically, and biblically sound. Copan's book is accessible for all Christians who want to defend the plausibility of their faith in today's marketplace of ideas. It also includes helpful summary sections, additional resources, and documentation in the endnotes for review and discussion.
