Fun and easy to read, The Box uses the lively discussions of two neighbors to simplify powerful apologetic principles and refute the myth that unbelief stands on science and reason while the Christian worldview rests on blind faith. You'll see why the biblical miracles are logical and reasonable, why unbelievers cannot possibly know they did not happen, and why it is impossible for atheists to know that God does not exist. The Box explains why all arguments rest on assumptions of faith, and why unbelieving assumptions by which they argue against the God of Scripture are unscientific and unreasonable blind faith. How can Mr. A know God does not exist when he doesn't know the contents of Mr. C's garage?

"This is a great book to share with a non-Christian inquirer. Written as a dialogue between a Christian and an atheist, it is enjoyable to read, and its presuppositional argument for the truth of Christianity is cogent. I hope it gets a broad circulation."
--John M. Frame, J. D. Trimble Professor of Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary
"This is a wonderful help. Its reasoning is tight, but it is 'popular' enough to be helpful for virtually anyone. Really a nice work."
--Fred Zaspel, Author of The Theology of B. B. Warfield
"A solid defense of biblical Christianity against the claims of atheism and a practical and orthodox response to the challenges of the vocal advocates of unbelief in our times."
--William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia
"Atheists and their less dogmatic cousins, agnostics, are making a comeback today, at least in Europe and North America. In some places, moreover, they are given the moral high ground and assumed to be chic. But as Craig Biehl has shown, they are undermining any and all standards of morality, and even rationality. Now more than ever, Christians need to understand this and encourage one another to stay fixed upon Christ. Read this book and rest assured that, in the words of the old hymn, all other ground is sinking sand."
--Douglas A. Sweeney, Professor of Church History and the History of Christian Thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"Biehl's book is impressive. The dialogue is a helpful and interesting approach that makes apologetics more accessible. There is so much to which I could point that I consider to be good and even striking that I think it would be pedantic to list them all."
--David McWilliams, Senior Minister, Covenant Presbyterian Church, Lakeland, FL
"Craig Biehl is a scholar, but one who speaks in plain language in defense of the authority and reliability of the Bible and its teachings. The Box debunks denials of biblical truth by exposing the flawed assumptions which underlie them, boosting our trust of Scripture and providing us with useful tools to defend our faith against scholarly attacks."
--Bob Deffinbaugh, Ministry Coordinator, Bible.org.
"A marvelous book. I am delighted by the thought of college students reading this as they tread through the deep waters of unbelief on the college campus. Craig does a wonderful job of boiling down unbelief and of demonstrating the commonality between atheism and agnosticism and the fact that all believers can and should interact well with unbelief. I am grateful for this labor of love for Christ's church."
--Dustyn Eudaly, Associate Minister, Holy Trinity Presbyterian Church, Orlando, FL
Craig received his A.B. degree in economics from the University of California, Berkeley, M.B.A. from the UCLA Anderson School of Management, Th.M. from Dallas Theological Seminary, and Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Westminster Theological Seminary. Craig teaches and writes on various theological topics, including apologetics, worldview, the theology of Jonathan Edwards, the excellence of Christ, and others. He lives with his wife Angelica in Pennsylvania where they are involved in various ministries and most happy to be redeemed in Christ.

Book Description Carpenters Son Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 144 pages. Mr. Cs little antique box is giving Mr. A fits. How could such a simple idea ruin his sleep and push him to abandon his atheism to become an agnostic And why does he doubt his former confidence to deny the possibility of miracles and the existence of the God of Scripture It seems the little brown box had shaken him to the core. Was he really a man of faith, and blind faith at that Must an atheist really know everything about the universe and beyond to know that God does not exist Was his atheism irrational Atheists and agnostics pride themselves on being reasonable and scientific while viewing Christian faith as blind and unreasonable. But the opposite is true. Christian faith is neither blind nor unreasonable while the best arguments of atheism and agnosticism rest on false assumptions of faith. Moreover, the toughest arguments against Christianity and the truth of Scripture can become the means of stronger joy and faith in Christ when we see the unreasonable and unscientific nature of unbelief in the best of its proponents. All arguments against the existence and nature of God can easily be exposed as resting on unreasonable assumptions of blind faith. When Christians learn to see and understand these assumptions, they are not only equipped to refute the most difficult claims of unbelief, they will be encouraged in their faith in Christ and inoculated against intimidating arguments that would steal their joy and assurance.
