Beginning with the simple statement that "God exists," Harber dives into
social, cultural and intellectual arguments against the existence of God and
doesn't back down.
However, he does so with great care and compassion for those who might not
believe in the existence of God, and in simple terms explains why the God of
the Bible does indeed exist. After that, he undertakes to present the basic
theology that Jesus is God and that Jesus is the only way to heaven.
Harber admirably avoids bogging down the book with heady, philosophical
discussions designed for intellectuals and scholars, although he writes of
things that require much thought. Reasons for Believing speaks to
modern seekers in a language they can understand.
This is an ideal book to pass along to a non-Christian who is open to
discussing the claims of Christianity--not just for its well-thought-out
defense of Christian basics but also because Harber pulls no stops in dealing
with the gospel of Christ.
He closes the book with a chapter entitled "The Verdict," which bridges the
gap between merely
discussing the claims of Christ and actually acting on them to believe that
Jesus is Who He claims to be.
