JEFFERSON CITY – The Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) has just released a revised and expanded edition of The Apologist’s Tool Kit, the popular booklet produced last fall to equip Missouri Baptists to defend the Christian faith “with gentleness and respect” (1 Pet. 3:16).
Articles in the 81-page booklet, written by MBC Apologetics Specialist Rob Phillips, address some of the most commonly challenged Christian doctrines today, from the existence of God to the authority of Scripture.
In addition, they offer a biblical basis for identifying and dealing with false teachers, and they provide an overview of several religions, cults and sects that lay claim to Scripture but deny its core teachings.
Articles include: What is Christian apologetics? What’s your worldview? How do I know God exists? How do I know the Bible is true? Who is the real Jesus? And, What do false prophets have in common?
The booklet also features overviews of Islam, Mormonism, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Roman Catholicism, and the Word-Faith movement (prosperity gospel).
In addition, there are recommended apologetics resources, tips for sharing your faith with members of other religions, and information on hosting an apologetics workshop in your church.
The tool kit is available for $7 and may be ordered online at mobaptist.org/apologetics or by calling 573-636-0400 ext. 303.
