    A Christian Perspective

    by Stewart E. Kelly

    Why Should Anyone Believe Anything at All?

    by James W. Sire

    With insight and humor, James Sire examines the reasons people give for believing what they do and suggests what are truly satisfying and compelling reasons for belief. He then turns to the question of belief that the Christian faith is true. Sire tackles both the best reason for belief in Christianity (the identity of Jesus) and the chief reason against it (the problem of evil).
