The Defense Never Rests
This powerful critique of American Christianity chronicles the spiritual pilgrimage of one man and provides a defense of the pure Gospel.
In the first half of the book, Parton explains his spiritual autobiography. Follow his journey from unbelief to American Evangelicalism and Campus Crusade staff work, to his discovery of the Lutheran church. In the chapters after his arrival at an understanding of Lutheranism, he presents a hard-hitting critique of shallow, pop-style worship and theology. Readers will also appreciate Parton’s honest, systematic approach to apologetics that tackles the tough questions of how to explain the Christian faith in a way that always points back to Christ’s work.
This new edition features sections dealing with the challenges of New Atheism, Bart Ehrman, and the new wave of biblical criticism.
