Thousands of students come to college taking for granted the existence of God and the supernatural, but many come to feel that there is no basis for such belief. Others come with a positive faith and graduate with their faith either blasted or divorced from reason.

This change of attitude toward the things of God results from an attitude which is to be found in many university classes. The opinion of an authority--the professor--is accepted as evidence without investigating his credentials, the facts which led to his conclusions, and the basic assumptions which colored his interpreation of the facts. Consequently a student may accept his professor's conclusions just as he previously accepted the Christian position without a thorough understanding of it.

Ken Taylor writes this booklet to show university students and others that anti-supernatural claims are based on assumptions, not on evidence, that the Christian faith is reasonable, and that the claims of Christianity are too well substantiated to be ignored.
