To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.
Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

He is the author of Christian texts that promote the Bible and morality and serve to provide sound advice and reasoning for the Christian faith. A fervent believer in the inerrancy of the Bible, his books When Skeptics Ask and When Critics Ask provide answers to those who question discrepancies in the Bible or challenge its authority. In Legislating Morality, he discusses why laws should be passed and enforced to create a moral, Christian society.
