Format: Paperback
The principal purpose of this little book is to show that Christianity is reasonable. I mean this philosophically: you can reason a strong case for the central truths of Christianity. This is an unpopular theme in 21st century atheist Britain. Strangely, this UK atheism is not rational, but is based on supposition, prejudice and, often, anger. The Christian needs to know that the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is at least as reasonable from what is available to us in Christian, Jewish and pagan accounts, as readily accepted other histories of the time.

The author makes his case strongly and calmly. Yes, the entire earth-presence of Jesus Christ as the Son of God is well-attested from the accounts that we can place our hands and minds on.

The real issue is the nature of religious knowledge. Facts are made available, but are never conclusive, and you as one human being make your choice. As a lawyer the author attests this well. The decision must be left to the hearer of the Gospel, who makes for himself the same life-changing decision that others have had to make down the centuries. Or not. Such is the way of Christ: 'Who do you say that I am?'
