In recent years the Christian faith has been challenged by skeptics, including the New Atheists, who claim that belief in God is simply not reasonable. Here prominent Christian philosopher C. Stephen Evans offers a fresh, contemporary, and nuanced response. He makes the case for belief in a personal God through an exploration of natural "signs," which open our minds to theistic possibilities and foster belief in the Christian revelation. Evans then discusses why God's self-revelation is both authoritative and authentic. This sophisticated yet accessible book provides a clear account of the evidence for Christian faith, concluding that it still makes sense to believe.

From the Back Cover:

Why Christian Faith Still Makes Sense is part of the Acadia Studies in Bible and Theology series. Series editors are Craig A. Evans and Lee Martin McDonald.

"Decades of first-rate philosophical scholarship and deep Christian reflection on the faith are here pressed with astonishing delicacy into an elixir of apologetics. Evans brilliantly summarizes a wide range of arguments on behalf of the rationality of the Christian religion, but he also offers a trio of arguments from miracles, 'paradoxicality,' and existential power that sings a much fresher and more vital song than the grim, thin plaint of the New Atheists. Highly recommended for classrooms, small groups, personal consideration, and friendly discussion with your favorite atheist."
--John G. Stackhouse Jr., Regent College, Vancouver

"Written by a seasoned Christian philosopher, this book is a marvelous overview of the reasonableness of biblical faith in a skeptical age. Evans's work is fresh and engaging, and the case for Christianity is further illuminated by his inclusion of Kierkegaard's reflections on reason, paradox, and belief. A delight to read!"
--Paul Copan, Palm Beach Atlantic University

"Lucid and accessible, this would be a great book to give to students and laypeople who wish to understand how reason supports Christian faith in the light of modern challenges."
--George M. Marsden, University of Notre Dame

"Evans is one of the foremost philosophers of religion in the world today. In this book, a synthesis of some of his more detailed earlier work, he has given us a well-ordered analysis of the New Atheism and, what is far more important, expositions of the best historic and contemporary philosophical and theological responses. Any intelligent layperson can read this book with pleasure as well as profit, and it would make a great text for general-level courses as well."
--David Lyle Jeffrey, Baylor University

"The so-called New Atheists have set the context for much contemporary disbelief in any god at all. Evans knows this but digs much deeper into much more problematic objections. His profound response is orderly, clear, and persuasive."
--James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door and Apologetics beyond Reason: Why Seeing Really Is Believing
