Reviewed by Veronica Ruggiero for Readers' Favorite

Contending for the Faith by Christopher H.K. Persaud was a very different kind of read for me. I found it to be extremely compelling and thought provoking as well. Persaud has a real knack for writing and it shows through in this work. In today's time, more and more people are starting to question their own faith, which results in religious values slowly fading away. Many people who were once devout Christians are now giving their faith up in order to live in a more free spirited kind of a way. There are no consequences for actions anymore, which is one reason why the world is the way that it is. This book reinstates religious values, and reminds us that we must continue to preach God's word in order to keep the faith alive.

This book contains contemplative inquiries and arguments that both endorse and advance the Gospel of Christ, along with establishing biblical truth. I find it to be quite inspiring, and not too preachy at all. Instead, it is an honest work. I am a Christian myself, but not a devout Christian. However, I found this book to be extremely well written, and definitely one that most religious people should read. The world can't continue in the way that it is, and people need to revisit Christianity and the core values. Highly recommended.
