Josh McDowell and his son Dr. Sean McDowell have collaborated on a completely updated and expanded edition of the modern apologetics classic Evidence That Demands a Verdict: Life-Changing Truth for a Skeptical World.
"Evidence was first published with Campus Crusade for Christ in 1972 to arm thoughtful Christ followers with knowledge to defend and proactively present the Christian faith," says Daniel Marrs, associate publisher, Thomas Nelson Bible Group. "Since that initial release, more than one million copies of this classic apologetics resource have been sold. The truth of the Bible doesn't change-but its critics do. So we're excited to present this fully updated and expanded edition that addresses the latest challenges to the Christian faith with brand new research from Josh and Sean. We here at Thomas Nelson are delighted for the opportunity to continue partnering with Josh, Sean, and Josh McDowell Ministry to steward this resource for the Kingdom in the coming years."
Over 1 million copies of Evidence That Demands a Verdict are currently in print, making it one of the most widely used and trusted manuals on Christian apologetics. Since the last update of Evidence in 1999, Josh and Sean have begun working together on some ministry fronts. In this new edition, significant new content has been developed by both authors. The new edition goes on sale October 3, 2017.
"Over forty years ago, I saw that Christian readers needed answers to defend their faith against the harshest critics and skeptics," says Josh McDowell. "Sean and I invite readers to bring their doubts and to not shy away from the tough questions. This new, completely revised and updated edition of Evidence brings historical documentation and some of the best modern scholarship to bear on the trustworthiness of the Bible and its teachings."
"Evidence has been a trusted resource for believers young and old and has encouraged and strengthened the faith of millions," says Sean McDowell. "I'm honored to have partnered with my dad on this new edition, and I'm eager to see how it will impact the faith and evangelism of a new generation."
