Dr. Ron Highfield, elder, preacher, author, professor of religion at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, one of today’s more effective Christian apologists, longtime gracEmail subscriber, and (like myself), a native son of North Alabama, has announced the publication of his latest book on Christian Apologetics, titled: ChristianityIs It Really True? Responsible Faith In a Post-Christian Culture.
Last year Ron blogged in answer to the question, “Is Christianity True? producing 48 essays along the way. This book contains the latest incarnation of those essays, revised and edited from Ron’s blogs last year. It would make an excellent gift for an undergraduate or graduate student; would be ideal for a small group study; and it is both edifying and informative for anyone to read. Available from Amazon.com and available also in Kindle.

By the way, in the lecture titled “The Fire That Consumes” (9/24/11), I summarize the whole book of the same name in 70 minutes, making it (to my knowledge) the most complete single presentation available anywhere of the biblical and historical case for the everlasting, total destruction of the unrepentant, and the case against the popular tradition that says God will keep the lost alive forever in hell to inflict them with everlasting conscious torment.
