"I consider Keeping Your Kids on God's Side to be an important, eye-opening 'gateway' book. Natasha has done a wonderful job of quickly introducing the important issues and evidences from the perspective of a parent. She's engaging, thoughtful, and she knows how to throw the ball so you can catch it. Let Keeping Your Kids on God's Side serve as an introduction to the most important work you will ever do as a parent."
-J. Warner Wallace, author of Cold-Case Christianity and God's Crime Scene, international speaker, professor at Biola University
"I almost wish my children were young again so I could use Natasha Crain's book with them. Through her parenting blog, Crain has access to the most important questions and challenges parents are hearing from their children today. She writes in strong, vigorous prose and does a great job of pitching her answers at a level that parents can understand-and, even more importantly, that they can use."
-Nancy Pearcey, author of Total Truth and Finding Truth, apologetics professor, Houston Baptist University
"Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is a timely and much-needed book. Natasha provides a road map so parents feel equipped to have the critical (and difficult) faith conversations with their kids. If you want to see your kids have a vibrant faith, then get this book and start having these conversations with your kids today!"
-Sean McDowell, author of more than 15 books, including A New Kind of Apologist, international speaker, professor at Biola University
"Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is an outstanding resource every Christian parent should have in their home library...this book is the most accessible, non-intimidating treatment of key apologetics issues I've seen to date, and I will be recommending it to every parent I encounter!"
-Melissa Cain Travis, Assistant Professor of Apologetics, Houston Baptist University, author of Young Defenders series of apologetics books for kids
"Parents, wake up. The secular culture is challenging our kids like never before and we've got to prepare them for the barrage of false ideas they will most certainly face. Apologetic conversations are no longer optional; they're a necessary part of our kids' discipleship. Thankfully, Keeping Your Kids on God's Side is the resource we all need. It's accessible and comprehensive, and it will equip you to engage your kids in conversations that count, big time."
-Brett Kunkle, Student Impact Director, Stand to Reason
"Many well-intentioned, godly parents unknowingly send their children out into the world malnourished by an insufficient diet of evidence for their faith...We know. Ratio Christi sees it every day in our chapters on high school and college campuses. Students come to us starving for ways to defend their faith from intellectual assault. As the director of parent outreach at Ratio Christi, I've been looking for a tool to recommend to parents so they can start this training early at home. This is it. Start feeding your family a steady diet of Keeping Your Kids on God's Side to strengthen their hearts and minds for the battles against the secular smorgasbord they will face."
-Julie Loos, Director, Ratio Christi Boosters
"As a youth pastor, I'm thrilled to see an apologetics book written with parents in mind! It is not a matter of if your children or students will encounter arguments against Christianity, but when. Questions will come, and when they do, where will your kids find answers? The Internet? Their college professors? Atheist friends? We need to take responsibility to equip ourselves to be that resource...this book will help you do just that!"
-Patrick Brown, Student Ministries Director, Whitehaven Road Baptist Church
"As a pastor over family ministries, I am very excited about this book! It answers many of the strong objections against Christianity in amazing depth, yet in such a clear manner that even someone new to apologetics can easily understand it."
-Jared Novak, Family Pastor, New Life Church Bonita Springs
"I strongly recommend Keeping Your Kids on God's Side for parents who need brief but trustworthy answers to the skeptical objections their kids are likely to encounter...It is rare that so much solid information is found in one accessible resource!"
-Doug, dad of 4
"Aside from the Bible, Keeping Your Kids on God's Side has just become the most important book in our house. Natasha walks you through all the 'tough' questions in such a way that it makes conversations with your kids easy...To be honest, this book has helped me with things I've wrestled with myself! I will be buying a copy for every parent I know and care about."
