Is there really any evidence for the existence of God? Are Christians able to provide any intellectually satisfying reasons for their faith in Jesus Christ? Is there any way to become acquainted with philosophical arguments about the existence of God besides reading through large, dry, academic books? Yes, there is The purpose of this book is to help people understand the philosophical arguments and debates that swirl around the Christian faith. It is sensitive to the fact that many people are not interested in heavy academic books of philosophy. Since it is written in the form of a philosophical dialogue, it has a conversational style that makes it easy to read and understand. Difficult arguments are presented clearly and concisely. Anyone who is interested in better understanding how Christianity relates to philosophy, science, history, and truth will benefit from reading this book. This book does a great job of presenting difficult truths in such a way that students can grasp the arguments and objections. With this book they can more fully know what they believe and be better prepared to defend their faith with confidence. --Bill Klees, Director, Susque Academy for Worldview Studies Recently I had planned to sit down with one of my students to review some basic arguments for the existence of God. Since the student had a base in apologetics already, I wanted to bring some depth to his understanding, as well as an ability to use the arguments conversationally. Reading through West's book was extremely helpful for clarifying different types of arguments, and also for bringing them to a level of application as the dialogues illustrate possible outcomes and objections. This book is extremely helpful for anyone who wants a deeper understanding of key apologetic arguments, as well as examples of how these arguments might play out in a conversation. In my ministry on campus in Montreal, this book has been very useful. --Andy Smits Montreal Campus Director, Campus Crusade for Christ, Canada Steve West is the pastor of Madoc Baptist Church in Madoc, Ontario.
