One Taken—A Lawyer’s Guide to Being Sure You Are a Christian

Are you a Christian? Are you sure?

One Taken is the book a Christian in doubt about their faith would receive if they asked a lawyer to turn the relevant verses of the New Testament into an easy-to-follow manual on how to be sure they are a Christian.

Why would someone turn to a lawyer with questions about their faith? Lawyers have a valuable set of skills. They typically use those skills to help clients work through complex legal problems, but those skills are readily transferable to working through other kinds of problems as well. One Taken provides uncertain Christians a lawyer’s treatment of everything the New Testament says about how to be sure you are a Christian. It collects all of the verses that, taken together, answer that question, and presents them in an organized, highly accessible way with limited commentary.
