Publisher's Summary

There is a widespread belief that reason and faith are incompatible and opposed to each other. Faith is viewed as subjective, emotional, a crutch for those who find the real world too hard. Though many of the world's finest minds hold this view, the Bible teaches that it is the fool who says there is no God.Dr. R. C. Sproul clearly and simply argues that at its core Christianity is rational. He focuses on defending the basic truth claims for two of the most crucial issues of apologetics: God's existence and the Bible's authority. In this primer of apologetic thought, Dr. Sproul affirms four logical principles that are necessary for all real discussion and teaches you how to defend your faith in a faithless world. Using the writings of church fathers and philosophers throughout the ages, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith.The defense of the faith is not a luxury or an intellectual vanity. It is a task appointed by God that you should be able to give a reason for the hope that is in you as you bear witness before the world.

Enlightening

I had expected this book to be a collection of hard hitting arguments from science, archeology, prophecy, etc. for the divinity of the Bible. Instead it was an introduction to defending the faith from an almost purely philosophical perspective.
At first I was disappointed but as I listened I found myself intrigued with a side of Biblical apology that I had never considered. By the end of the book I was delighted with the purchase. Sproul does an excellent job showing how men think without God and how logic and rational thought will inevitably bring men to the knowledge that there is a God. I think it is one of the most educationally enlightening books I've read. I highly recommend it!
