evidences from the perspective of a parent. She's engaging,

Natasha Crain's book with them. Through her parenting blog, Crain

"Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is an
outstanding resource every Christian parent should have in
their home library...this book is the most accessible,
non-intimidating treatment of key apologetics issues I've seen to
date, and I will be recommending it to every parent I
—Melissa Cain Travis, Assistant Professor of Apologetics, Houston Baptist University, author of Young Defenders series of apologetics books for kids
"Parents, wake up. The secular culture is challenging our kids
like never before and we've got to prepare them for the barrage of
false ideas they will most certainly face. Apologetic conversations
are no longer optional; they're a necessary part of our kids'
discipleship. Thankfully, Keeping Your Kids on God's
Side is the resource we all need. It's accessible and
comprehensive, and it will equip you to engage your kids in
conversations that count, big time."
—Brett Kunkle, Student Impact Director, Stand to Reason
"Many well-intentioned, godly parents unknowingly send their
children out into the world malnourished by an insufficient diet of
evidence for their faith...We know. Ratio Christi sees it every day
in our chapters on high school and college campuses. Students come
to us starving for ways to defend their faith from intellectual
assault. As the director of parent outreach at Ratio Christi, I've
been looking for a tool to recommend to parents so they can start
this training early at home. This is it. Start feeding your family
a steady diet of Keeping Your Kids on God's Side
to strengthen their hearts and minds for the battles against the
secular smorgasbord they will face."
—Julie Loos, Director, Ratio Christi Boosters
"As a youth pastor, I'm thrilled to see an apologetics book
written with parents in mind! It is not a matter of if your
children or students will encounter arguments against Christianity,
but when. Questions will come, and when they do, where will
your kids find answers? The Internet? Their college professors?
Atheist friends? We need to take responsibility to equip ourselves
to be that resource...this book will help you do just that!"
—Patrick Brown, Student Ministries Director, Whitehaven Road Baptist Church
"As a pastor over family ministries, I am very excited about
this book! It answers many of the strong objections against
Christianity in amazing depth, yet in such a clear manner that even
someone new to apologetics can easily understand it."
—Jared Novak, Family Pastor, New Life Church Bonita Springs
