We live in a time and culture when biblical beliefs and Christian presuppositions are not always assumed to be true. There are some challenging questions out there, but we can approach these questions honestly and rationally. Examining these questions in light of Scripture gives Christians solid footing for their beliefs and helps them speak graciously and knowingly with those who question their beliefs. We don’t have to simply believe something “blindly;” we can say confidently what we believe and why we believe it.
