By James W. Sire

"Look conscientiously. pay attention heavily. Do you notice? Do you pay attention? There are one million signposts pointing towards the explicit fact of God in Christ. Ive visible lots of them. yet God is talking to you too. glance and notice. pay attention and hear."

In this obtainable and interesting paintings, veteran apologist Jim Sire offers us eyes to determine the myriad "signals of transcendence" throughout us that time to the categorical fact of God in Christ. targeting the facility of excellent literature—even from those that deny the life of God—enables us to understand and testify to God's fact in ways in which rational argument on my own cannot.

"While cause will be very valuable in pointing us to God and supporting us in our apologetics, what compels and convinces humans is extra multidimensional," says Sire. "What is required is a extra holistic apologetic that not just contains fact but additionally goodness and beauty."

All thought is rooted in God the author, and a few of Gods fact lies buried till an artist exposes it. stable literature, written from a Christian point of view or now not, screens a number of examples of our human understandings of God, the universe and ourselves. It testifies to the lifestyles of a transcendent realm and infrequently, in reality, to the reality of the Christian faith.
