Apologetics Beyond Reason
Full Product Description
In this accessible and engaging work, veteran apologist Jim Sire gives us eyes to see the myriad "signals of transcendence" all around us that point to the specific truth of God in Christ. Focusing on the power of good literature--even from those who deny the existence of God--enables us to perceive and testify to God's reality in ways that rational argument alone cannot.
"While reason can be very helpful in pointing us to God and helping us in our apologetics, what compels and convinces people is more multidimensional," says Sire. "What is needed is a more holistic apologetic that not only includes truth but also goodness and beauty."
All inspiration is rooted in God the Creator, and some of God's truth lies buried until an artist exposes it. Good literature, written from a Christian standpoint or not, displays multiple examples of our human understandings of God, the universe and ourselves. It testifies to the existence of a transcendent realm and often, in fact, to the truth of the Christian faith.
Apologetics Beyond Reason by James W. Sire was published by IVP (USA) in October 2014. The ISBN for Apologetics Beyond Reason is 9780830840557.
