It’s time to make a choice.
Many young adults are abandoning the Christian faith, convinced that it's an outdated and uneducated belief system. Dan DeWitt counters these misconceptions and challenges us to think carefully about the choice between Jesus and nothing by comparing the Christian worldview with the notion of a godless universe devoid of true goodness and ultimate significance.
This winsome book describes the rock-solid foundation for life that Christians enjoy in and through the gospel—offering an explanation for our existence, grace for our guilt, and meaning for our mortality.

About the Author
Dr. Dan DeWitt is from a small town in the middle of a cornfield in central Illinois. He was, however, close enough to the city of Springfield to manage to get a little culture. He came to faith in Christ at the age of 15. He always wanted to be an artist, but felt that serious Christians didn't bother with such trivialities. Reading a British author named G.K. Chesterton changed his mind. In addition to teaching and writing, he sometimes doodles. He feel that there's a time for an academic textbook and a time for a sketch book. His favorite author is C.S. Lewis, and he thinks yours should be, too. Dr. DeWitt spends most of his research and writing time at the intersection of faith and secularism.
