The Hobbs College Library equips Christians with tools for growing in the faith and for effective ministry. The library trains its readers in three major areas: Bible, theology, and ministry. The series originates from the Herschel H. Hobbs College of Theology and Ministry at Oklahoma Baptist University, where biblical, orthodox, and practical education lies at its core. Training the next generation was important for the great Baptist statesman Dr. Herschel H. Hobbs, and the Hobbs College that bears his name fosters that same vision.

Praise for Why Believe
“Tawa Anderson has the heart of a pastor and mind of a scholar, writing an enjoyable, readable, and philosophically, biblically, scientifically, and historically informed apologetic for theism and Christianity. His patient and accessible, lucid and inviting prose deftly canvasses a wide swath of evidential terrain, each step successively building toward a powerful cumulative case. In the process his impressive approach models what a laudably expansive, philosophically rigorous, existentially satisfying, and large-hearted apologetic ought to look like. Warmly recommend!”
“Apologetics is as important today as it has ever been. Yet, in an age when most apologetic texts are either overly technical or too watered down to be of great use, Tawa Anderson’s Why Believe is a breath of fresh air. As a trusted intellect and gifted writer, Anderson provides an outstanding resource for those interested (no matter their motivations) in the great questions about Christian faith. This book will have a long life and use in the courses I teach!”
“Tawa Anderson skillfully shows, in plain language, that there are good reasons to want and believe Christianity is true. Fully conversant with the contemporary landscape regarding the questions of God, faith, and the Bible, Anderson’s Why Believe is essential reading for anyone seeking truth. Believers will be nourished and strengthened. Unbelievers will be challenged and set on a path that, if faithfully followed, leads to Jesus.”
