    • No Other Gods : A Defense of Biblical Christianity
    • Can we prove that God exists? Did Jesus rise from the dead? Is there evidence in support of Jesus' claim to be God incarnate? How do we know the Bible is God's Word? Phil Fernandes, one of the Northwest's leading young defenders of the Christian faith, attempts to answer these questions and more in this extremely important book.
