This classic defense of Christian belief from John H. Gerstner speaks to the “thinking public,” and college students in particular. Gerstner avoids technical jargon, and speaks directly to practical issues of faith and doubt. The pastor and professor works his way from general theism to particular Christian belief, addressing criticisms and objections along the way. He addresses the questions about the Bible’s authenticity, miracles, prophecy, and social and scientific objections using biblical archaeology, Christian history, classic philosophy and theology, as well as his own personal experience.
John H. Gerstner (1914–1996) was professor of church history at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary and an authority on the life and theology of Jonathan Edwards.
