12 hard questions for the world's largest religion was published by Crossway, April 2019, and named "2020 Book of the Year" by Christianity Today, and apologetics and evangelism book of the year by The Gospel Coalition.
Religion’s decline in the modern world turns out to be a myth. Christianity is the most widespread global belief system, and promises to remain so. But for many educated westerners, biblical Christianity is a dangerous idea - challenging some of our deepest beliefs.
Channeling state-of-the-art research, personal stories, and careful biblical excavation, Confronting Christianity explores 12 questions that keep many of us from considering faith in Christ. Look more closely, McLaughlin argues, and the reality of suffering, the complexity of sexuality, the desire for diversity, the success of science, and other seeming roadblocks to faith become signposts. Jesus becomes not a relic from the ancient world, but our modern world’s best hope.
10 Questions Every Kid Should Ask (and Answer) about Christianity

In this helpful book —written both for Christian kids and for those who think Jesus is just a fairy tale character — Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin invites readers ages 10–14 to dig deep for themselves and perhaps discover that the things that once looked like roadblocks might actually be signposts.
