About-

Modern Christians have been bombarded by objections launched against the Christian faith from popular secular authors, bloggers, and stars from the entertainment industry. The church is quickly beginning to acknowledge the need for apologetics due to the number of youth and adults alike leaving the faith. But how does one respond to these objections? For the laity of the church, this is especially difficult, as many are left without the proper training to know how to answer these objections.

In The Layman’s Manual on Christian Apologetics, the essentials of apologetics are taken from the ivory towers of academia and are made available to those who have not obtained seminary training or for those thinking about attending seminary. In this book, three major areas of apologetics are covered. The first unit engages the nature of truth and what can be known. The second unit deals with the existence of God and issues involving God’s existence. The last unit tackles historical objections to the resurrection of Jesus and early Christianity. The Layman’s Manual on Christian Apologetics delivers heavy apologetic issues with the laity in mind and blends in personal illustrations to make the material applicable.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Chilton’s Manual delivers on its promise to make accessible to the local church the powerful resources of apologetics. Providing an aerial view of the apologetic landscape at once refreshing and required, written with winsomeness and good humor, it shows the author’s pastoral heart, practitioner’s spirit, and rigorous mind. This book can and will equip readers to answer honest questions and gain confidence and boldness in sharing, explaining, and defending the good news of the gospel.”

—David Baggett, co-author (with Jerry Walls), The Moral Argument: A History



“Chilton’s book offers practical insight into the objections that are facing Christians. What is most impressive is that this work teaches this on a level that anyone can understand. At the conclusion of the book, the reader will be able to think critically about the issues that are being raised against Christianity.”

—Wes McGarry, Associate Pastor, Westfield Baptist Church, Westfield, North Carolina



“I can think of no better introduction to the field of Christian defense than that of The Layman’s Manual on Christian Apologetics. I hope that this book not only blesses its readers as they grow in truth and understanding but also inspires them to share their faith more confidently. In my view, this is the best book of its kind and just what the church needs considering our current cultural climate.”

—J. D. Kline, graduate of Liberty University and Christian Apologist
