In our relativistic society, Christians more than ever are bombarded by tough questions about their faith. Author Paul Copan" "has observed that many of these questions emerge as "anti-truth claims" that are part of today's skeptical mind-set. Christians defending their faith often hear slogans and questions such as: Z It's all relative Z Everything is one with the Divine; all else is illusion Z The Gospels contradict each other Z Why would a good God create hell? This book provides incisive answers to slogans related to truth and reality; theism, pantheism/Eastern religion, and naturalism; and doctrinal issues such as the incarnation and truth of Scripture. Each of the twenty-two chapters provides succinct answers and summary points for countering the arguments. Copan's book is accessible for all Christians who want to defend the plausibility of Christianity in the marketplace of ideas. It also includes helpful summary sections, additional resources, and additional documentation in the endnotes for review and discussion.

"Beneath the clichEs of our culture lie some unsettling questions about God. Paul Copan, with genius and simplicity, uncovers the struggle and constructs his answers on a firm foundation." Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker "It's all relative." "Everything is one with the divine." "Why would a good God send people to hell?" "The Gospels contradict each other." In our relativistic society, Christians more than ever before are bombarded by skeptical comments such as these. You hear them on college campuses, in the workplace, and from your neighbors and friends. " That's Just Your Interpretation "provides incisive answers to challenges related to truth and reality, worldviews, and Christian doctrine. Similar to his well-received ""True for You, but Not for Me," "this book by Paul Copan will help you defend your faith, even when you're confronted with the toughest questions. You'll be able to respond with intelligent, powerful answers that direct people toward a personal relationship with God. "The book is accessible to non-specialists, yet Copan clearly brings to each subject careful research and scholarly reflection." J. P. Moreland, Talbot School of Theology "Paul Copan manifests the conceptual skills of a fine philosopher and theologian as well as the heart of a sincere Christian. This combination is potent indeed, illuminating a wide range of pressing issues about the Christian faith." Paul Moser, Loyola University of Chicago "Paul Copan writes with clarity, force, and insight about the credibility of Christianity." Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College
