I especially liked his evaluation of the place of doubt within the context of genuine faith. He reviews the main arguments in philosophy that both undermine and support religious truth claims. He acknowledges the fact that there will always be alternative explanations of things that the human mind can generate, yet he patiently pushes these alternatives to their logical conclusions. He admits the weight of non-believing arguments, but shows that they are not compelling intellectually.
What to do after the negative arguments are voiced and reflected upon? Calmly reply: "Nevertheless,I believe." While both sides of this perennial debate continue to square off, I think more likely the believing side will find this book worth curling up to during the winters of our personal discontent.
