Prepare Yourself to Engage Today's Secular Culture
The Christian Combat Manual will help Christians respond positively to their faith and the criticism aimed at Christianity.
The Christian worldwide dominated American culture until recent times. Christian principles and values directed governmental policies and set the standards for judicial, educational, ethical, and social behavior in this country. Not so today! People have become apathetic, even indifferent to immoral behavior that a few decades ago was universally recognized as evil and condemned. Vulgarity and violence flood our entertainment industry. Cheating is commonplace in college classrooms, as is corruption and greed in the workplace.
The Christian Combat Manual is carefully constructed to help Christians engage culture by training them to confront and respond to major intellectual and cultural challenges they face today. One chapter encourages the use of the Socratic method-asking "counter-questions" that place the burden of proof on unbelievers, forcing them to defend their beliefs.
The Christian Combat Manual is divided into five parts, as Part One defends the historically accurate accounts of divine revelation while Part Two tackles the raging controversy regarding the theory of evolution. Part Three demonstrates the existence of God, while Part Four centers on the person of Jesus Christ. Part Five focuses specifically on modern issues and secular postmodern doctrines.
