Defending the Faith

From the back of the book:  Women want answers!
A busy twenty-first century woman who has not taken the time to think through exactly what she believes about God, even why she believes in God, tends to live as a practical atheist. Today's Christian woman needs the transformation that having a reasoned belief in the reality of God's existence can bring, the intellectual confidence that will empower her to speak boldly on faith issues, with love and self-control.
It's not that women need different or special apologetics arguments; they simply need to be encouraged and instructed in the importance of apologetics in their daily lives. Women who are exposed to apologetics find themselves energized and excited about sharing their faith with family, friends, and coworkers.
Popular apologist Mary Jo Sharp issues a personal challenge for sisters in Christ to approach their faith on an intellectual level, along with a compelling call for women's ministries to help women love God with their minds by incorporating apologetics into their programs.

I think this is a very important book, that all women in ministry need to read!   Ms. Sharp gives us the reasons, the how to, and resources to accomplish this task!   I feel that all Christians should know what they believe and why.   I also like the advice that if you can't answer a question, take their name and contact, and tell them you will find an answer to the question.  A very important thing to do.  Apologetics is very much needed and we should all surround ourselves with who we believe in and why.    I really do recommend this book, it gives a good heads up on apologetics, great resources to continue your learning a well.  

I received this book free from the publisher . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
