Millions of Christians all over the world testify that the greatest gift in their lives is the God they find in and through Jesus Christ, describing him as the source of all goodness, truth, beauty and joy and the world's only hope for others. But there are also millions who think otherwise, sensing here a massive delusion which stands in the way of human maturity and well-being. This book is about the debate between these two great groups. The central questions it discusses are: how sound is belief in God as taught by the historic Christian churches? Can sincere seekers after truth who care for the well-being of our world and those in it still believe in God? Does faith in God continue to thrive because it wins the respect of such people, or is it living off and eroding the inherited capital of the past? These questions are explored by careful, non-technical and lucid presentations of the arguments for and against Christian belief in God, which try to avoid caricature or simplistic appeals. The two cases are then judged in a final chapter by norms accepted by both sides, and a conclusion arrived at. While as Dr. Prozesky admits, the ocean is doubtless too mysterious to yield all its secrets to one person's fathoming, all readers of whatever persuasion will gain much from his fascinating and balanced presentation and findings.
