At some point, I thought I might make some of my blog into a book, so I idly mentioned cover design to my friend Joshua Wright. And so began an entertaining art project. First, we needed a concept. I had an idea of Lady Justice, weighing the evidence, which fitted with the book’s theme. But Josh saw some deeper levels to the analogy. What if considering the evidence was an act of rebellion? Graffiti on a structure that was beginning to crumble. I had used similar analogies in some of my writing and so the idea evolved.
This is an excerpt from Evidence Considered: A Response to Evidence for God. Evidence for God is a book edited by William Dembski and Michael Licona that presents fifty arguments for faith from the Bible, history, philosophy, and science. In this excerpt, I respond to the twenty-seventh chapter by Richard Spencer entitled: “Intelligent, Optimal, and Divine Design.” This is one of the chapters in the section of the book on the question of Jesus.
