All believers experience the challenge of building understanding and defending the disposition of their God and their belief when the very basis of their faith is being questioned. Apologetics for the Working Christian: Understanding the Great Commission of Jesus Christ ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-626-7), a new book by Xulon Press author Donald L. Pickard, Ph.D., is for those who are not experts in the field of apologetics but have a passion to make Christ known to and accepted by others in their workplace and daily life. This new book will present to the reader the necessary evidence to defend those Christian values and truths in a professional manner without them being educated in the field or a philosophy graduate.
"Readers will find evidence to prove the essential truths of Christianity for their use as working bases for performing and obeying the Great Commission of Christ," the author says. "Simple, understandable answers are given to critical questions that a Christian may confront, such as: Does God exist? Is Jesus the Christ? Is the Bible true? What is the importance of baptism? Is the resurrection of Jesus really true? What are the essential teachings of personal evangelism?"
Dr. Pickard, a Christian for more than 50 years, has held executive positions in business, education, and government, including executive-level management positions in major universities, a private corporation, a government authority, and city management. He has always demonstrated award-winning results in these endeavors and produced successful subordinates. He believes that the need for this type of book is great given how much the Christian faith is called into question in this day and age--and that readers will benefit from the wealth of knowledge on critical Christian truths contained therein.
