In this 2017 up-dated and expanded version of Reasons for Faith: The First Apologetic Guide for Christian Women on Matters of the Heart, Soul, and Mind (foreword by Dr. Norman Geisler), Judy offers practical methods for answering questions of faith posed by seekers. In her lively, straightforward style, she addresses such concerns as the existence of God, the problem of evil and human suffering, post-modernism, the reliability of the Scriptures, and a variety of other popular challenges to the Christian faith.

THE FIRST BOOK FOR WOMEN ON CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS AND THE FIRST BOOK WOMEN TURN TO FOR CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS

"I know of no book on the market that better meets the spiritual needs and fills the intellectual hunger of women who want to see their friends, family, and children in the kingdom of God. "
Dr. Norman Geisler (from the foreword)

Distinguished Professor of Apologetics
Veritas Evangelical Seminary

"What an accomplishment—to make a book on Christian apologetics delightfully entertaining! Judy’s common sense language and powerfully memorable examples give life to each topic she tackles so that reading her book is pure joy. Her book and her approach is a rarity."

Divine Appointments: Spontaneous Conversations on Matters of the Heart, Soul, and Mind is an engaging, informative resource highlighting six unique conversations with six women who pose the most popular and challenging objections to Christianity that many believers encounter today. Judy Salisbury offers nearly 100 practical and life changing responses, presented in real-life conversational format, to help move Mrs. McBride, Svetlana, Suzanne, Gertie, Clarice, and Glayda to conversion or further investigation. Divine Appointments addresses an array of emotional, biblical, moral, intellectual, and spiritual concerns that many women face. An excellent resource for a women's group study, sections include Questions for Review and Thoughts for Refection for discussion, additional training, practical information, encouragement, and advice for those who desire to reach others for the Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom or to solidify their walk with Him. (Fans of the original 2002 compact disk series of Divine Appointments will appreciate this exciting, new 2016 replacement in book form since the conversations are expanded, completely updated, and include special training not contained in the original CD format.)

"Author Judy Salisbury is one of the leading female apologists today! In Divine Appointments, she presents six witnessing scenarios that focus on top challenges to the Christian faith. Using her expertise, careful research, and creative conversational approach, Judy inspires women to engage in God-conversations and equips them to answer unbelievers’ questions. So get out your yellow highlighter and get prepared to influence and reach precious souls for whom Christ died!” Marilyn Joy Tyner, Apologist, Author of Awesom-azing God, and Founder of True Way Tracts (TrueWayTracts.com)

"Absorbing, instructional, insightful. Judy Salisbury's book Divine Appointments embodies examples of truly speaking the truth in love. The stories she weaves together provide perfect examples of how to relate to others through conversational evangelism about the truths of the Christian faith. She demonstrates how to confidently, yet lovingly, share those truths even when it comes to the tough topics. You will gain hope that you can do the same and the boldness to do it. Divine Appointments is an apt companion to any apologetics book, showing how to put principles into practice. It’s an apologetics manual wrapped in a warm blanket. Snuggle up with it.” Julie Loos, Director, Ratio Christi Boosters 

“Judy Salisbury's engaging book, Divine Appointments, is equal parts convicting, encouraging, and empowering. It is convicting, because it reminds each of us of those times we've shied away from conversations that might have otherwise been life giving because we worry about being embarrassed. It is empowering because it reminds us that even if the conversation feels awkward, the worst thing that can happen is feeling a little embarrassed. It is encouraging in the Biblical sense of 'infusing courage' during times when we might otherwise walk away from a divine appointment.” Hillary Morgan Ferrer, Intelligent Design Apologist

"Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures." (Luke 24:27) If you've ever wondered what that conversation between The Stranger and the two disciples on the road to Emmaus must have been like, the The Conversation: An Intimate Journal of the Emmaus Encounter takes you there.

“The Conversation brings to life that famous encounter between the two disciples and our Lord Jesus on the road to Emmaus. While it is based in part on an imaginative reconstruction, it is filled with the throbbing pulse of the excitement of the sensational impact that our Lord's resurrection should have on all of our lives." 
Dr. Walter Kaiser
President Emeritus
Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

“I found The Conversation remarkable and riveting. Judy Salisbury portrays Yeshua in such a beautiful, gentle, perfect way.  Tears were rolling down my face as I envisioned him through her words.  She did a fantastic job with the Scriptures, networking them all together with profound significance—the mark of a seasoned apologist. The book, as a whole, is fascinating, captivating, eye-opening, and doctrinally sound. I also think it would make an awesome movie. The Lord’s hand was definitely in this project. I can’t wait for my Jewish friends to read it!”

 “The Conversation is an excellent sketch of the sort of things that might have been said by Jesus and the two on the way to Emmaus after the Resurrection.  It presents a good number of the prophetic passages that we have reason to believe were recognized as Messianic in the early church. It gives us a good feel for how Cleopas and his friend might have reacted to these things as ‘their hearts burned within them.’”
Dr. Robert C. Newman
Professor of New Testament

More Than Devotion: Remembering His Word, Applying it to Our Lives is a unique, 50-day, life-changing devotional. For fifty days the reader will know in both head and heart that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever. The God of the Old Covenant is the God of the New, and the same God who is present in our daily circumstances. Each devotion draws from a rich scriptural context and concludes with a practical, achievable call to action, plus journaling space for personal reflection. New believers and veteran followers of our Lord can grow in the innermost areas of their lives to enjoy a more intimate walk with the Savior.

As a busy clergyman in the Lord’s Service, I can connect with these devotions. It is so easy to suffer burnout from ministry. The constant need to give out from being needed to feed and nurture others around me can be draining at times. The time of a quiet rest with the Father and His Word is food and drink for my soul. Judy Salisbury, in this book, provides an oasis for ministry leader or lay Christian alike. She interweaves stories, Scripture, theology, and applicable lessons that we can use in our lives. I encourage the reader to take time as they read and drink from the fountain of God’s Word here in her 50 days of refreshing. Take time to meditate upon what she is saying and write out the “My Task/Challenge” and “My Outcome/Results” at the end of each day’s connection with God. I believe that you will grow in a closer relationship and understanding of God and His Word. I loved it!

Judy Salisbury’s book is fittingly entitled, More than Devotion. This unique work prompts the reader to take practical actions that can grow us up into better followers of Christ and people in general. Her daily use of similar accounts from the Old and New Testaments not only help us to become more familiar with biblical personalities, their struggles, and successes with remarkable relevance for us all, but her approach also develops in the reader a greater love and appreciation for the Word of God. I happily give my hearty endorsement to this work and pray everyone who is serious about growing in the Lord, reads it!

More than Devotion is full of awesome encouragement from God's Word coupled with practical experiences and application from years of walking in the "cool of the day" with God. It is not just another devotional; Judy captures the very essence of how Scripture applies to our everyday life—past, present and future. I loved it!"

Judy offers wisdom and insight in her chapter entitled Creating an Apologetic Climate in the Home in the enlightening book, Is Your Church Ready? Motivating Leaders to Live an Apologetic Life co-edited by Ravi Zacharias and Norman Geisler. Judy makes the case for the importance of passing the torch of our faith on to our children and explains how we can do just that.

"Judy, I was so thrilled to see your chapter in Is Your Church Ready?! Your comments that we must equal the vigor of those who mislead our children and that we must equip our children with answers even before they ask questions struck a cord deep within me."
J. Ed Komoszewski
Founder/Director Christus Nexus
co-author of Reinventing Jesus

"The title of this books poses a crucial question. Church leaders are compelled to come up with an answer of some kind. How do you defend the faith to a generation that hears with its eyes and thinks with its emotions? Any ideas? By adapting classical apologetics to meet today's challenges. John Guest, Judy Salisbury, Ravi Zacharias, and others use personal examples to help you address objections to Christianity, equip teens to remain faithful to Christ, reach foreign-born residents, and more."

"Fantastic apologetic resource! If you want to begin to enter the apologetic debate then you need this book. It is deep and well researched/extensive book. Not only have I used this book personally but we also have used it in our church for our leadership core."
