Women need to be able to talk about their faith with confidence.  Mary Jo Sharp explains how women’s ministries and women can train one another how to implement apologetics into their training.

She discusses how to take action and how to know Christian doctrines, God’s attributes, and more.

About the Author-

Mary Jo Sharp is an Assistant Professor of Apologetics at Houston Baptist University.  She is also the director of Confident Christianity, Inc., a nonprofit apologetics ministry.

My thoughts-

Defending the Faith, by Mary Jo Sharp, has called me to take action.  I’ve known for several years now, that as a Christian woman, I can and need to do more to be able to explain and defend my faith and Christianity to others.  I also knew that I can’t always be asking others the difficult questions or referring my children to other people for answers.  I never knew how to do it and now I do.

On page thirteen, Sharp stated that the point she wanted to make in the book was that women’s ministries need to include apologetics training.  She made her point!

There were many important and good parts in this book.  I really enjoyed chapter four which discusses how to take action.  I know I need to learn the Christian doctrines, God’s attributes, and how to listen and question others.  I have another blog which is dedicated to Christian book reviews and other thoughts I have, so it is the perfect platform to blog my thoughts and journey for others on this subject.  I will start with this book, then utilize the excellent reference section at the end of the book to help me learn more.

I highly recommend, Defending the Faith, to all women.  We need to know how to tell others what we believe and why.
