Is Christianity irrational?
Atheists often say that it is. But does such a charge really stand up to close scrutiny? This book follows the story of Thomas, a junior in college, as he wrestles with the claims of those who think the Christian faith is nothing more than a collection of ancient myths with little connecting to reality.
Whether you are facing objections to your faith for the first time, discussing your faith with unbelieving friends, or doubting your faith altogether, you might be surprised to discover that Christianity actually provides a more compelling explanation of what it means to be human than atheism could ever hope to offer.

About the Author
Dr. Dan DeWitt is from a small town in the middle of a cornfield in central Illinois. He was, however, close enough to the city of Springfield to manage to get a little culture. He came to faith in Christ at the age of 15. He always wanted to be an artist, but felt that serious Christians didn't bother with such trivialities. Reading a British author named G.K. Chesterton changed his mind. In addition to teaching and writing, he sometimes doodles. He feel that there's a time for an academic textbook and a time for a sketch book. His favorite author is C.S. Lewis, and he thinks yours should be, too. Dr. DeWitt spends most of his research and writing time at the intersection of faith and secularism.
