Read, study, and share this book."--Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries

"The apostle Peter tells us to always be ready to answer anyone who asks for a reason for the hope we have (1 Peter 3:15). Being ready doesn't have to be intimidating. Chip Ingram has presented a straightforward case for why he believes. This book will help strengthen your own belief and give you resources for communicating it to others."--Jim Daly, president, Focus on the Family

"This is a keeper--a classic! You will learn so much that will help you encounter the culture in a powerful way. In fact, buy a few extra copies because you will want others to have this book."--Kay Arthur, cofounder of Precept Ministries International

"Chip Ingram has a way of taking complex and intimidating material and making it accessible and applicable to everyone.
