The Reason Why Faith Makes Sense
by Mark Mittelberg
Almost a hundred years ago, successful business leader Robert A. Laidlaw wrote a small book, The Reason Why, to explain in a thoughtful and accessible way why he was convinced that faith in God makes sense. Mark Mittelberg has updated and expanded his discussion of this perennial topic for the twenty-first century. In addition, he highlights some of the more recent evidence relating to these themes:
Is there a God?
Can the Bible be trusted?
Are we accountable to God?
This small book is a very easy and quick read. I do recommend it. It would be a great tool for witnessing to someone who questions faith, God or his salvation. The book also will reinforce your beliefs and faith in God. It also is an excellent book for Christians who just “believe” but who have never asked questions about their beliefs – why they believe the way that they do, why they may have questions, etc. If you are just curious, if you have questioned that God or Jesus Christ exists, then this book is for you.
Another reviewer states that this book should be on every Christian’s shelf – make that two copies. One for you and one for someone who is in serious need for it. Good advice.
