Believe & Know by Cathy Bryant
“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” -1 Peter 3:15

Each human being–on their journey and search for truth–must at some point reflect on life and answer important questions. Why am I here? Is there life beyond life as I now know it? How did the universe and man come into existence, and how does the answer affect me? In addition, each person must then make life or death decisions on the truth they uncover.

This book addresses hard questions that accompany the search for truth. It also gives answers to win the lost and win back defectors. The Bible study guide is written for: those who struggle with faith, many times because of skewed perceptions or even anger; those who profess faith in the unseen, but find it difficult to live out; and finally those whose faith is strong, but who need information to combat the arguments and questions of others.

This book addresses the following:

-The Danger of Unbelief – Why faith is truly a life or death matter.
-Proof of Intelligent Design – Evidence that exists for a Supreme Being.
-The Problem of Evil – The number one hang-up people have with God.
-Proof of Jesus as God – Jesus always claimed to be God.
-Proof of God’s Love for Mankind – The sacrificial act all time hinges on.
-God’s Plan for Us to Believe and Know – We don’t have to wander in darkness, chaos, and confusion.
-Faith Matters – The case for faith in an unbelieving world.

This Bible study guide was written as a companion to the spiritual theme of sharing and defending faith found in CROSSROADS, Christian fiction and the sixth stand-alone book in the Miller’s Creek novels.


“Whether you are searching, a new believer, or someone who has been walking with the Lord for awhile, this Bible study is for you. I found much meat and food for thought as I worked through this Bible Study. Cathy’s insights and applications were most helpful. If you are looking for a Bible study to help you grow or to help you share, this is for you!!! Highly recommend this study to one and all.”

“This Bible study is good for both non-believers and believers. For Christians, the topics covered in this book will challenge us to be more faith-living and prepare us to explain our beliefs to those searching. The section, Bible Study Suggestions, provides excellent directions for getting the most from your reading.”

“I would encourage you to get and read this book. Study it. Use it to help you reach out to those who don’t know the Lord.”

“Do you know what you believe and why you believe it? Can you defend your beliefs if someone questions you? We are admonished by Paul to always be ready to answer for our faith, but I know many times I am intimidated to stand. In this Bible study, Cathy Bryant gives us the tools that can help us be prepared to explain our faith in God. Backed by Scripture and accompanied with thought provoking questions, this study will help you get grounded in the Word so you can talk to others about your own personal walk with God, the creator of the universe.”

We all know at least one person who has backed away from the faith. Because they come from a believing background, they also are very proficient at challenging believers. Sadly, I wasn’t as prepared for this challenge as I thought I was. But the whole situation forced me from my comfort zone into a study of how best to meet the arguments and questions of others in order to defend my faith and win back defectors. How I pray that this book will enable us to “give a reason for our hope” and bring prodigals back home.
