Abstract:

Content: Have you ever had questions about God and ultimate reality? Have you ever wondered about origins, values, and destiny? If you have, you're not alone. Millions of peoplein our generation face genuine difficulties regarding questions of life and faith - Why isthere suffering? Is God really "there"? Howdo I cope with death? Although the majority of men and women in our day struggle with tough questions such as these, most Christians downplay the importance of philosophical questioning. Thus, seekers of truth are often reluctant to ask the awesome questions lurking just beneath the surface. Understanding firsthand the current deemphasis on religious questioning, Norma Sawyers has written this book - both to call attention to the seriousness of the situation and to provide a context for asking and answering some of the questions. First, in A Personal Grief, Norma Sawyers tel

ls about her own intensely personal and painful journey to an intelligent knowledge of God. Then, in A Reasonable Faith, she not only calls attention to the fact that an objectiveapproach to the spreading of the gospel is desperately needed today, but also provides in-sights and answers to such questions as: Whatis Faith? - Is it Wrong to Doubt to Question? - Is it Enough to "Just Believe?"--Is Christianity Just a Psychological Crutch? - Are All Religions True? - Does the Bible Conflict with Science? - Was Jesus Really God? - Why Does God Allow Evil and Suffering? - Is the Bible Truly God's Word? - Does God Really Send People to Hell? - Why Are There So Many Hypocrites in the Church? - Is There Need for a Christian Reformation? Each chaper of A Reasonable Faith is based on one of these tough questions, and each answer is given with empathy and love for the real people with urgent queo.
