A Response To Evidence for God
William Dembski and Michael Licona edited a collection of essays, entitled Evidence for God: 50 Arguments for Faith from the Bible, History, Philosophy, and Science. I am open to evidence and so I studied the book. Evidence Considered presents 50 responses to these essays and shows why they leave me unconvinced.
If you are a rational Christian, and would like to examine the reasons for your faith more closely, read this book. I have included sufficient detail so that it is not necessary to have read Evidence for God. Each chapter is self-contained, referencing other chapters where necessary.
While Evidence Considered discussed a broad range of apologetic arguments, and demonstrated why none of them were convincing, one of the chapters discusses the evidence for the resurrection. For many Christians, this is the crucial point, on which all else hinges. It certainly was for me.
Gary Habermas and Michael Licona wrote a book, referenced in Evidence for God, called The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus. In this book they delve deeper into this subject, and my next project considers this book's arguments in more detail.
I have also been previewing some of the chapters for this book in my blog, so please feel free to look there for more details.
I have always wanted to write and I find this topic endlessly fascinating. I recently created a Bible tool called The Cross-Referenced Bible to help me with my research. I'm going to make it available on Kindle and perhaps in print. You can read about the project here, including ways to contribute.
I continue to write the blog, including sneak previews of my book project, The Resurrection Considered. I am still finding my feet in this new world and would like to find more ways to engage. Please follow me on Twitter, read my blog, or contact me with your thoughts.
