John Feinberg meets the challenge of modern skepticism head on, with the full confidence that Christianity is rational and defensible in the marketplace of ideas. Your mind will be stretched and your faith strengthened when you read this book.

Senior Pastor, The Moody Church, Chicago, IL
Dr. Feinberg, a well-respected philosopher and theologian, has written a rigorous and learned work. The first two sections give a careful prolegomena to apologetics, emphasizing epistemology and apologetic methodsubjects that are all too often ignored or glossed over in works on apologetics. He then applies his apologetic method to some of the most important questions in apologetics. The attentive reader will be richly rewarded.
Professor of Philosophy, Denver Seminary; author, Christian Apologetics
John Feinbergs book is an insightful, thoughtful, and thorough analysis of the modern and postmodern mindsets and a guide on how to engage them. In addition to astute treatments of traditional apologetical themes, such as the Gospels reliability and religious pluralism, this volume incisively engages skepticism, truth, and knowledge quite unlike the standard texts in apologetics. Carefully-argued, yet quite readable, Feinbergs book has much to offer the expert, the novice, and those in between.

John Feinberg is one of todays most accomplished Christian scholars. Having written on ethics, the doctrine of God, and the problem of evil, he here turns his attention to apologetics in a modern and postmodern world. Can You Believe Its True? manages to make a large and complex body of material accessible. In Feinbergs rendering, truth is neither irrational nor strictly modern (foundational), but biblical. Both theoretically solid and ultimately practical, this book will contribute enormously to showing how Christian faith is reasonable, credible, and pertinent to our confused world.
Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
John Feinberg is one of the most perceptive Christian thinkers of our time. In Can You Believe Its True? he affords an accessible and helpful guide for pastors, ministerial students, and laypersons about how to articulate the truth of Christianity effectively in our postmodern era.
Provost and Professor of Philosophy and Ethics, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
Having provided detailed analyses and assessments of modernist and postmodernist assumptions, Professor Feinberg offers a sympathetic critique of Reformed Epistemology (Plantinga) and presuppositionalism (Van Til), noting virtues and limitations. He follows this with a presentation and defense of his own evidentialism, including sample applications. This is a major contribution to current discussion as to the best approach to Christian apologetics.
-Keith E. Yandell,
Julius R. Weinberg Professor of Philosophy, Emeritus, University of Wisconsin Madison
This volume by John Feinberg presents a more extensive range of subjects than many apologetics textbooks. Beginning with truth and the modern-postmodern debate, Feinberg wades into waters that are explored too seldom in this context but that perhaps include the most gems. Other topics include a detailed investigation of apologetic methodologies, along with specific issues such as the problem of evil, the reliability of the New Testament text, Jesuss resurrection, and pluralism and tolerance. Each is discussed with understanding and insight. While this is the thorough treatment one would expect from Feinberg, its accessible and relaxed tone gives it a sense of a conversation throughout. I recommend this enjoyable text that can be used at more than one level, depending on the students needs.
