Description: When Christians share their faith with non-believers, they are often surprised to find that Christian practices and beliefs are illogical, simplistic or senseless to people who don't share them. Beliefs like: In giving, Christians receive. Death means life. The greatest are the least. The wise are foolish. The foolish are wise.

Paul wrote in his letter to the Corinthians, "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God" (1 Corinthians 1:18).

Why do Christians believe and act out their faith as they do? How can they share it with their non-believing friends? What would help their friends see that what seems illogical and foolish is really joyfully wise?

Contrary to Popular Belief shares the Christian life wonderfully and joyfully. Through stories and contemporary topics, readers learn how to appreciate and share the wisdom and simplicity of God's "foolishness" -- a wisdom that surpasses the knowledge of the ages.

"Contrary to Popular Belief tackles the tough questions and issues that can come between Christians and their non-believing friends. It is an honest look at the seemingly foolish and paradoxical truths of the Christian faith. As Stephen effectively points out, truth needs no defense, just opportunity! This timely book will help Christians explain their faith to their non-believing friends and loved ones". -- Dr. John C. Maxwell Founder of Injoy
