Doug Erlandsonabout this book: If you're looking for a great story and excellent Christian apologetics, read this book. Philosopher Doug Erlandson shares his spiritual and intellectual journey through a 12-year period of unbelief and recovery of faith. He details the steps that brought him to faith as well as the reasons for his belief.
Recognizing that many apologetics texts are rather dry, consisting only of the carefully-reasoned arguments for belief, Dr. Erlandson writes a compelling personal story interwoven with theological arguments. The result is a fascinating story and an intellectually stimulating presetation of theological issues.
Anyone who has an interest in understanding why is is good reason to accept the Christian message and those who like inspiring accounts of how people respond to the Gospel will appreciate this book.
This is a well-researched book, based on more than 25 years of teaching philosophy at the university and community college level. Dr. Erlandson also served as a pastor for six years.
The book is well-written and filled with vivid examples to make a point, such as the chapter on Pascal's Wager where Dr. Erlandson talks about the suicide of a fellow philosophy professor who jumped out of a story building on campus.
This is both a good story and an excellent Christian apologetic.
