ABOUT THE BOOK
Drawing from personal experience, the author is convinced that more would believe, if only they were made aware of the many evidences solidly supporting the Christian faith. 100 Reasons to Believe is written specifically for these unaware individuals, and, indeed, for all sincere seekers of truth who long for evidence to reinforce their faith.
The great distinguishing characteristic of this work is its use of eye-pleasing, attention-grabbing/retaining visuals. Each of the 100 Reasons is presented in a self-contained, two-page storyboard, with an image always leading off the left-hand side page. Shaded/boxed theme statements are added, along with scannable text and the calculated use of white space. The result is an easier and more enjoyable reading experience that promises to draw more sincere seekers into the exciting, faith-reinforcing world of Christian apologetics.
Once convinced that the Bible is indeed the Word of God, it is only natural to ask: "According to the Bible, what must I do to be saved?" The Appendix provides a Biblical answer to this most important of all questions, again using two-page storyboards. Coming full circle, with God's added blessing, the stated purpose of this work will have been accomplished in the lives of those previously unaware individuals, who are now trusting in Christ alone for their salvation.
