About the Book

No One Plans to Lose Their Faith

We all think we’ll be the kind of Christian who follows the straight and narrow, ending our days with the relief of knowing we were ultimately good and faithful servants. The truth is, many of us struggle with our faith. Some even fall away from their faith. What enables some to survive as Christians when so many others have faltered? Most importantly, how can followers of Jesus keep the faith in the midst of today’s most pressing questions?

A Christian Survival Guide provides a lifeline for followers of Jesus who are tired of pat answers but need a solid foundation for their faith. Written in a conversational style, this book takes on big questions without getting bogged down in big theological terms.

With A Christian Survival Guide, Ed Cyzewski steps up to be your guide to some of the biggest, toughest questions in Christianity, including:

  • Is God Violent?
  • Is Hell a Real Place?
  • Does the Bible Have to be “True”?
  • Can God be Good if he Permits Evil?
  • Does Money Keep Us from God?

Candid and wry, A Christian Survival Guide deals with the tension of hard questions without resorting to empty answers, clichés, relativism, or the smug certainty that can so often drive seekers and strugglers further away. This survival guide is not meant to be a “one size fits all” handbook. It is a first step to confronting the big issues and challenges of a life of faith—even the ones that Christians fear most. Cyzewski writes for those who both care and question deeply, and offers survival tips to help readers move from living on the edge to a place of health and life.
