New Xulon Title - Establishing Discipline for Defending the Faith Ciervo provides believers a tool for engaging an apathetic culture with the Gospel

MAITLAND, Fla., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the new book, Apologetics For The Rest Of Us: A Beginner's Guide ($12.99, paperback, 9781628391855; $6.99, e-book, 9781628391862) Ray Ciervo provides an accessible and informative "quick read" for those with a desire to understand the foundation of apologetics. The author emphasizes the importance of grasping the topic of apologetics for the church as a whole—not just an elect few—especially in this day and age.


"It is possible for the 'rank and file' of the church to learn how to defend their faith," states the author. "We live in a climate that is hostile to the Christian message and Christians can learn the reasons for their faith. In order to engage the culture, we must know why we believe as well as what we believe. We also need to know what the arguments are against the Christian message."

Ray Ciervo has been in Christian ministry for almost forty years. He holds a Master's degree in apologetics from Southern Evangelical Seminary (2002, summa cum laude). He has been ministering as an apologist for the past eleven years in local churches, campus ministries, teaching seminars and conferences.
