    by David Baggett and Marybeth Baggett

In this volume, David and Marybeth Baggett offer a dramatic, robust, and even playful version of the moral argument, showing that it not only points to God's existence but that it also contributes to our ongoing spiritual transformation.

Instead, we are encouraged to understand the postmodern world as we seek to mature spiritually in Christ.
