It's natural for you to have questions about Christianity. What does Jesus really have to offer in a world that is so complicated, where there's so much pain? What difference could he possibly make in your life? For years Cliffe Knechtle has been fielding questions about and objections to Christianity from thousands of people. They want to know what you want to know--what does Jesus have to do with the real world, with real life? In this book Knechtle provides the answers to some of the toughest questions you have, including

  • Don't all religions teach the same thing?
  • Why do Christians try to impose their morality on others?
  • What is so valuable about life?
  • What is God's answer to evil in the world?
  • Why can't people seem to get along with each other?
  • Why is forgiving others so difficult?
  • Isn't God kind of old and boring?
  • How do I know I can trust Jesus?
  • I still have some doubts. Can you help me believe?
Life isn't easy. And what Knechtle offers you in this book are not pat answers. Rather, they are direct responses to real people with real questions. If you have questions about Christianity, Help Me Believe will grapple with them squarely, honestly and helpfully.

About the Author:

Knechtle travels around the United States talking to people with questions about Jesus. His home base is in Connecticut, where he pastors Hope Church in Wilton.

From Publishers Weekly:

Knechtle ("Give Me an Answer") works as a Christian apologist and evangelist, visiting college campuses across North America. This book attempts no systematic explanation or defense of Christian belief, but provides Knechtle's response to 39 basic questions raised by his audiences. The resulting evangelical FAQ gives a sense that times are changing for Christian apologetics. Knechtle is not silent on classic topics such as the problem of evil, or who Jesus is, but his emphasis has shifted from rational "evidences" to the questions being asked by an increasingly postmodern generation of undergraduates: questions about values and relativism, relationships, guilt, forgiveness and hope. Even his treatment of divine existence takes on a strongly relational cast. As the book's title indicates, Knechtle generally assumes as a starting point that his readers have some positive interest in Christian faith. What he does not assume is an even rudimentary knowledge of Christian doctrine. Much of the book is devoted to basic explanations of Christianity and illustrative stories, often with a strong emotional appeal. These sections read more like an evangelistic talk than an apologetic treatise. The book will be most satisfying for those with a genuine interest in Christianity and relatively little previous knowledge of the Bible. For inquirers who are more familiar with Christian teaching, or are asking more complex questions, this undoubtedly sincere book may come up short.
