“Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 3:15, NIV). Throughout the history of the Christian era, and in particular since the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, many skeptics have called into question the reliability of the Bible. The recent rise of postmodernism has brought about a new round of questioning regarding Scripture’s reliability and many other issues foundational to a biblical worldview.
Always Prepared poses twenty questions that answer in large part the overarching question, Why am I a Seventh-day Adventist? The co-editors have assembled a distinguished group of scholars and theologians who skillfully probe and provide sound answers to such questions as, What’s so special about the seventh day of the week? Who was Ellen White? Are there moral absolutes? Do Christians worship three Gods? What’s unique about Jesus?
A companion book to Understanding Creation, Always Prepared is a collection of essays, by well-known Adventist scholars, that is guaranteed to provide a deep and thoughtful read.
