Subtitle: Answering a Skeptic's Challenges to Christianity


Description
All of the problems of heaven and earth, though they were to confront us together and at once, would be nothing compared with the overwhelming problem of God: That He is; what He is like; and what we as moral beings must do about Him. - A.W. TOZER

Raised an atheist, Mark Clark was skeptical of the claims of Christianity. Yet as he searched for answers to his persistent questions about origins, meaning, and morality, he found that Christianity offered rational answers that were surprisingly better than any other worldview, religious or secular, in the marketplace of ideas.

The Problem of God emerges from the intersection of two worlds: Clark's former life as a skeptic and his work today pastoring skeptics who are looking to better understand Christianity and find answers to their questions. Clark encourages readers to not dismiss the teachings of Jesus and the Christian faith as outdated and irrelevant. Instead, we need to doubt our doubts, suspend our disbelief, and make room for ideas that may draw us outside the assumptions we're used to.

In a disarming, winsome, and persuasive way, The Problem of God responds to the top ten God questions of our present age, including:
  • Does God exist?
  • What do we do with Christianity's violent history?
  • Is Jesus just another myth?
  • Doesn't science disprove the Bible?
  • Is God anti-sex?
  • Aren't Christians hypocrites?

Far from being irrational, Clark shows that Christianity welcomes and encourages intellectual questioning and why belief in God and the Christian faith is both rational and compelling.

ENDORSEMENTS:

This is a book I will buy in bulk and keep on hand to pass out to both my skeptic and Christian friends who are honestly asking the tough questions about Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity. -  Larry Osborne, Lead Pastor, North Coast Church.

The Problem of God provides an accessible paradigm for understanding and answering common objections to God, Scripture, and the historical person of Jesus without needing to be a philosopher, language expert, or historian. This book will equip followers of Jesus to have informed conversations with their friends and neighbors and deepen our own conviction that Jesus is Lord. - Bruxy Cavey, Pastor at The Meeting House; author of (Re)Union: The Good News of Jesus for Seekers, Saints, and Sinners.
