“You don’t honestly believe all that stuff in the Bible!?”
REVISED AND UPDATED Why Trust the Bible?
Challenged by her friends, and later as a student by her lecturers at the University of Oxford, Amy Orr-Ewing was determined to leave no stone unturned in her questioning as to whether the Bible is reliable. Sensitively and persuasively, the author addresses current issues and arguments about the Bible, showing us that we have no need to fear critical questions and have every reason to trust the Bible today.
Making sense of evil and suffering and finding hope.
Where is God in all the Suffering?
Dr. Amy Orr-Ewing is no stranger to pain and gives a heartfelt yet academically rigorous examination of how different belief systems deal with the problem of pain. She explains the unique answer that is found in Christ and how he can give us hope in the reality of suffering.
This empathetic, easy-to-read, and powerful evangelistic book is good for both unbelievers and believers alike. It will help those hoping to answer one of life's biggest questions as well as those who are either suffering personally or comforting others.
But Is It Real?
In But is it Real? Amy Orr-Ewing explores questions and challenges many of us will face as we think about faith.
“Isn’t your belief in God just a psychological crutch?”, “Belief in God is dangerous!”, “I used to believe, but I’ve given it all up!”, “Is God real?”, “Is it possible to know anything, let alone know him?” and “Why do bad things happen to people who worship this God?”
These objections and questions that come directly from real-life situations can be disconcerting. In But is it Real? Amy draws on her theological knowledge, experiences and humour to navigate some of the most heartfelt questions faith and life throw at us.
