What People Say About The Book

C. Kiser

“Bought Stand Strong by Alex McFarland for a gift for a high school graduate in my church. I have followed Alex McFarland and his work with apologetics for a long time. I truly appreciate his ability to reach out and touch the hearts and minds of teens and young adults, as well as adults of any age. Stand Strong is an excellent book to give to anyone you care about being able to defend their faith, especially within the secular college environment that is increasingly hostile to the Christian faith. Alex’s book has been written “for such a time as this”. “

“My teenage son (18) said that this book really spoke to him. He said all young men should read this book. It is helping him to stay strong in his faith while attending college. He says it is a challenge and one needs all the support one can get. This book does just that and he is glad I bought it for him. “
