Philip Nunn discusses the basics of faith and asks whether Christianity makes sense. He answers questions such as: How certain can we be? Why is truth important? Are there no other ways to God than Jesus? He examines critical arguments against the Christian faith and shows why they are not sustainable.
Are there strong reasons to believe? Does God really exist? What 'type' of God is that? Is the God of the Bible still active today? Is the Bible reliable? How does Jesus make God known? What is the Christian world-view? Is God really interested in what I do now? How sure can I be of spiritual reality? Why is faith so important for Christians? Is my faith real, when I occasionally struggle with doubt? This is a book for unbelievers who are seeking a dependable faith. It is also a book for believers who sometimes have genuine doubts about their own faith. It is also for Christians who are keen to give answers to honest questions from their thoughtful friends. It is written with the conviction that Christianity is a reasonable faith. Moreover, the Christian story works: it changes people for the better, it is satisfying and it gives meaning to life. Is it worth your faith?
