"How can we know any of this is true?" A.N. Wilson asks in this brilliant search for what is true in the Christian faith. "How much of the Christian religion, or what survives of it, is really ture? How much of the Creed can an honest man accept? How much is a modern Christian, however attached he is to the old forms and stories, obliged to admit that the atheists have won the argument?
Beginning with these questions, Wilson undertakes a courageous exploration of faith and doubt. He insists that what is unknowable is not therefore unbelievable. In the end, in the manner of C.S. Lewis, Wilson makes a lucid and strong affirmation of faith in the face of its many modern challenges.
A.N. Wilson is one of the most prolific and highly regarded writers in English today. He has won laurels as a biographer, for his lives of C.S. Lewis, Tolstoy, Milton, and Hilaire Belloc; as a novelist, for A Bottle in the Smoke and Incline Our Hearts; and as a journalist, for his work as literary editory of the Spectator. He was born in 1950, was educated at Oxford, and lives in London.
