Reasons for Believing: A Seekers Guide to
ChristianityBy Frank Harber
New Leaf Press
In this well-reasoned defense of Christianity, Harber takes seekers through
a coherent discussion of the believability of the Christian faith. Employing
logic and linear reasoning, he leads readers on a step-by-step examination of
the claims of Christianity and demonstrates that faith does not need to be
unreasoned but can and should be rational and defensible.
Beginning with arguments for the existence of God based on creation, Harber
compares the creation and evolution models and argues that divine creation is a
more believable option. In this chapter, and throughout the book, he observes
that a rejection of God is rooted in moral rebellion rather than intellectual
difficulties. After presenting conclusive evidence that God exists, Harber
tackles the veracity of scripture and then moves on to the claims of Jesus
Christ. Acknowledging that Jesus claim to be the only way is one of the biggest
stumbling blocks to skeptics of Christianity, Harber shows how even this
exclusive statement must be true.
This is an excellent book for sharing with an honest seeker who is
struggling with intellectual questions. Although the lack of any sense of story
may limit this books effectiveness for the millennial generation, it is a
useful apologetic for the claims of the Christian faith.
