A month ago I received a pack of books from CLC Philippines. One title translated to Filipino and Cebuano, focused on Apologetics. Though I haven’t heard of the author before (please support Filipino Christian Authors), this book have something to say.
“Important Questions and Answers” (Mga Mahalagang Tanong at Sagot in Filipino, Mga Mahinungdanong Pangutana ug Tubagin Cebuano) is not your typical book. As many Christians have settled to “prosperity gospel”, it’s time to get up and be geared up to truly witness for Christ. Indeed, this book is very extensive and effective. So relevant and excellent tool for any Christian.
More than just a Question and Answer book, its main purpose is to equip and raise up vigilant and effective witnesses of the Lord Jesus Christ, and we have no exemptions. You don’t have to worry about being overwhelmed by its content, each questions on this book was given a straight forward and biblical answer by author Emilio Ballesteros; which makes it an easy, practical and insightful reference.
One of the highlights that can be found in this masterpiece is its defense against the cults (including Ang Dating Daan, Iglesiani Cristo, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormonism), how to recognize them and how to get out once you’re entangled.
Many Christians might say that they’re too old, too young, too busy, too stressed to defend Christ in this insane world, but I am telling you, God has given us each and every opportunities to be the salt and the light of this world whatever the circumstances we’re situated. May we act like the Bereans:”They received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
Strongly recommended! A must and a great necessity to any Christian! So timely! Grab a copy now, be equipped and be ready for defense!
