Does life have a meaning?
Does it matter what I do?
In a culture that seeks to privatize and relativize truth in matters of faith, Peter May makes a robust case for the role of persuasive evangelism.
Grounded in a lifetime of biblical study and practical experience. The Search for God provides a challenge to enthusiastically engage in reaching 21st century men and women with a reasoned faith that helps answer the difficult questions:
Is there any real evidence for God?
Are the New Testament documents authentic?
Why and how did Christianity spread so rapidly in the ancient world?
And most urgently, how should it be communicated today?
