Product Description

We all accept some things on faith. But why should we unquestioningly believe everything we're taught---particularly church doctrines? With insight and humor, the author of The Universe Next Door discusses the best reason for Christian belief (Jesus' identity); the strongest argument against it (the problem of evil); and more. 239 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

A Christianity Today 1995 Books of the Year Finalist! Believing. Most of us take it for granted. We just do it--whether it's trusting that the sun will come up tomorrow, that the lunch we are about to eat is not poisoned or that our religious beliefs are not ill-founded. But why should we believe any of these things? Why should anyone believe anything at all? With insight and humor, James W. Sire examines the reasons people give for believing what they do and suggests what are truly satisfying and compelling reasons for belief. He then turns to the question of a specific belief--namely, belief that the Christian faith is true. Sire tackles both the best reason for belief in Christianity (the identity of Jesus ) and the chief reason against it (the problem of evil). And he responds to these issues personally and philosophically. Here is a book to challenge the skeptic and reassure the doubter in us all.
