Moyer, Doy. Mind Your Faith: Essays on Apologetics (published in 2010 by Florida College Press, 119 N. Glen Arven Ave., Temple Terrace, FL 33617). Apologetics is the discipline that rationally seeks to defend the Bible and Christianity through both the presentation of evidence and the use of reason. The readings in Mind Your Faith were designed for an introductory college course in evidences. Author Doy Moyer was a professor of Biblical studies and philosophy at Florida College in Temple Terrace, FL, though he has now left the school and returned to full-time preaching. There are 25 chapters with each one purposefully kept brief and able to stand on its own as an introduction to various fields covered by apologetics.
Subjects discussed include an introduction to apologetics, the reliability of the Bible, the resurrection and deity of Christ, and the existence of God. The chapter on “Salvation: Is There Only One Way to God?” is especially noteworthy, and the chapters on evolution, post-modernism, and atheism all contain much relevant and useful material. Each chapter has discussion questions, so the book could well be useful for teen or adult Bible classes in church and also for part of a home school apologetics course for high school students. In addition, it can help prepare individual Christians to remove a few stumbling blocks in discussions with their unbelieving friends and neighbors.
