In recent years the Christian faith has been challenged by skeptics, including the New Atheists, who claim that belief in God is simply not reasonable. Prominent Christian philosopher C. Stephen Evans offers a fresh, contemporary, and nuanced response in Why Christian Faith Still Makes Sense.
This sophisticated yet accessible book provides a clear account of the evidence for Christian faith, concluding that it still makes sense to believe. It will be of use to undergraduate professors and students of apologetics and philosophy as well as pastors, church leaders, and campus ministries.
“Decades of first-rate philosophical scholarship and deep Christian reflection on the faith are here pressed with astonishing delicacy into an elixir of apologetics….Highly recommended.” – John G. Stackhouse Jr., Regent College
“A marvelous overview of the reasonableness of biblical faith in a skeptical age. Evans’s work is fresh and engaging, and the case for Christianity is further illuminated by his inclusion of Kierkegaard’s reflections on reason, paradox, and belief. A delight to read!” – Paul Copan, Palm Beach Atlantic University
“Lucid and accessible, this would be a great book to give to students and laypeople who wish to understand how reason supports Christian faith in the light of modern challenges.” – George M. Marsden, University of Notre Dame
“An accessible, lucid, and well-ordered analysis of the New Atheism and, what is far more important, expositions of the best historic and contemporary philosophical and theological responses.” – David Lyle Jeffrey, Baylor University
“The so-called New Atheists have set the context for much contemporary disbelief in any god at all. Evans knows this but digs much deeper into much more problematic objections. His profound response is orderly, clear, and persuasive.” – James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door and Apologetics beyond Reason
