As a former lifelong Christian Mr. Jelbert responds to each of those arguments respectfully but with unapologetic and clear-eyed critical thought based on rationalism, history, and other evidence as the claims advanced as evidence for god require. "Evidence Considered" is organized as a chapter-by-chapter response to "Evidence for God" and as such would make an excellent companion piece in any serious consideration of these arguments, whether it be in a formal class or your casual book club.
Whether you are a Christian who states that your belief is based on reason or an atheist who finds insufficient evidence upon which to rest such a faith, if your interest is in well-reasoned and researched arguments you will find "Evidence Considered" an enormously satisfying read.
Glenton Jelbert delves into a number of these issues in this book, which is a well-thought out and structured response to a collection of essays claiming to offer evidence for the existence of the Christian god.
The book is divided into five parts dealing with philosophical matters; scientific theories; historical existence of Jesus; the text of the bible; and some general questions. Each section was fascinating as the subject matter is probed from different perspectives. The science part may be slightly hard work for some readers, but on the whole the book was accessible and easy to follow. As an ex-christian myself, the historical and biblical research was particularly interesting, and resonated with my own journey.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the Christian faith. The author approaches the subject in a way which offers insight and an alternative view rather than an attack on the religion and as such I believe it would be of interest to both believers and non-believers who want to learn more.
