Evidence That Demands a Verdict

The title of this post is the title of one of the bestselling Christian books of all time. The book’s author is Josh McDowell.

McDowell has written 151 books in 128 languages. He is one of the most influential Christians of all time. In my book – Finding God in Silicon Valley – I cited McDowell as having influenced the faith journeys of several Silicon Valley leaders.

Both Evidence That Demands a Verdict and The Resurrection Factor were instrumental in my coming to faith. In Evidence That Demands a Verdict, McDowell writes as if he were a defense attorney examining the evidence for Christian faith in great detail. In The Resurrection Factor, he explicitly offers several pieces of evidence that the resurrection of Christ is true.

Why is the resurrection so important? The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Corinthians 15:14, “And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is our faith.” The resurrection of Jesus is central to Christian faith.

I write this post to let my readers know that you have the rare opportunity to hear Josh McDowell speak at a Connect Silicon Valley virtual event called “Equip” on June 22.

If you have doubts about Christian faith or are a committed Christian, you owe it to yourself to hear Josh speak. In his talk, he plans to focus on the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus.
You can read more about Josh and register Equip with Josh McDowell.
