Item description for Reason to Believe by Maurice Wiles...

Overview
In this book noted Oxford theologian Wiles (What is Theology?) provides a clear and accessible introduction to Christian belief. Rather than simply stating and explaining the doctrinal tenets of Christian faith, however, Wiles sets forth what seem to him appropriate responses to basic questions about Christian belief that perplex Chrsitian and non-Christions alike. Instead of providing a technical overview of Christian doctrine, he offers a short section with each chapter-printed in bold type-that discuss some of the issues that are important for reasonably assissing the truth claims of Christianity. Wiles' free-flowing argument is not broken up with footnotes, although a bibliography at the end of the book provides suggestions for further reading for anyone interested in pursuing in more detail any of the book's topics. An index of biblical references is also included.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reason to Believe?

A reasonable view of Christianity  Mar 28, 2002
Wiles tackles really tough questions such as, "Who is God?" and "What is the meaning of the crucifixion" and "Is Christianity relevant today?" He proceeds to answer them satisfactorily by using reasoning. "Reason to Believe" is easy to read, as the author avoids theological jargon. I recommend it for Christians and non-Christians alike.
 
Incisive insights into the nature of Christian faith.  Jun 6, 2000
In Reason To Believe, noted Oxford theologian Maurice Wiles addresses clear answers to such fundamentally important questions of the Christian faith such as whether it is God or chance that determines what happens in the world; did the virgin birth, the crucifixion, and the resurrection really happen; if Christianity is true, are all other religions false; does Christian faith make any difference to morality; do suffering and evil negate faith in a good and loving God. Not a technical overview of Christian doctrine, Reason To Believe is an in-depth discussion of the issues important for reasonably assessing Christianity's basic claims. A bibliography provides recommendations for further reading for those interested in pursuing specific questions and issues in more detail. Maurice Wile's free-flowing argument and narrative style provides engaging and incisive insights into the very nature of Christian faith and is highly recommended for students of Christianity and the non-specialist general reader with an interest in Christian theology.
 
A clear, informative, detailed overview of Christian faith.  May 5, 2000
In Reason To Believe, Maurice Wiles (Regius Professor of Divinity Emeritus at Oxford University) give the reader a clear, comprehensive, informative overview and introduction to the Christian faith. Wiles identifies and explains the fundamental doctrinal tenets while providing appropriate responses to basic questions about Christian belief that often confuse Christians and non-Christians alike. A short section within each chapter (printed in bold type) discusses some of the issues that are important for reasonably assessing the truth regarding Christian claims and assertions. A bibliography is provided, as is an index of biblical references.
