Defending the Faith


Unique among all religions, Christianity makes several claims that others do not. For instance:

* All religions encourage men to reach up to God and ‘take hold of Him’ through their own works. Christianity is the only religion where God reaches down to man.

* While other religions underline many do’s and don’ts to please God; Christianity is more than a religion – it is a relationship with God!

* Christians consider Bible as the one and only source of Truth. Christian faith is based upon the most astonishing incident in all of human history—the resurrection.

No other religious leaders suffered so much like Jesus, who even had an imperial seal and guarded men outside His tomb. However, no power on earth or above could hold Him in the tomb. Resurrection makes the Christian faith stand apart from other religions. It tells the great truth that redemption of mankind can be gained only through Jesus Christ.

It is the duty of every believer to share and defend his faith in love. When the onslaught of heretical teachings and cultural invasion engulf the church, believers have to take a strong stand to defend the faith. GLS has some of the finest books in this regard as listed below. These books will surely equip every believer to understand and cement his faith and share it with others confidently.
