Introduction to Reasons We Believe
Nathan Busenitz is an associate pastor and assistant to John MacArthur at Grace Community Church. He also presides over the Shepherds’ Fellowship which is an online resource ministry for pastors and church leaders. He teaches at The Master’s Seminary where he is also pursuing his Th.D. in historical theology. He holds an M.Div and Th.M. from there as well.
The book itself is designed to solidify the believer’s faith insofar as an apologetic for the faith is concerned. Nathan relies heavily upon Scripture and only leaves the Bible as his main source when and where it is appropriate. The book can be read through cover-to-cover or it can be used as a resource tool for helping the believer to know what and why he believes what he does as well as present a clear and cogent argument when someone attacks his own faith.
