The Age of Reason has brought about attacks on basic Christian beliefs and the rejection of God. Those who have followed this movement turned away from the thought of God and relied on their own intellect. They have believed that God is unknowable, if He existed at all. Without being burdened by religion or faith, people seemed to have found freedom to come up with their own thoughts and beliefs on existence. Man felt that he could now claim to have higher reasoning than the constraints of what religion allowed, hence people have set out to disprove claims about Christianity and God being the source of all truth.
People tend to use the typical strawman that the Bible carries contradictions throughout the text. This would supposedly prove their point that God’s Word is unreliable. Christians are convicted by the Spirit of the truth in God’s Word, but you find that a lot of people with heart knowledge can’t always defend the truth for the lack of head knowledge.
Keeping Faith in the Age of Reason: Refuting Alleged Bible Contradictions by Jason Lisle helps lay to rest over 400 of the most popular supposed contractions that skeptics and non-believers often use to make a case against the Word of God. They have set out to prove that it is error-prone and Lisle has set out to prove them wrong.
With a thorough collection of topics such as quantitative differences and the timing of events, to cause and effect and differences in details, Lisle provides excellent insight as to why people use these arguments against Christianity. He also provides us with Scriptural proof that speaks truth into the topics at hand.
Keeping Faith in the Age of Reason is a fantastic tool for apologists, students and those who simply want to expand their Biblical studies. With commentary, definitions of fallacies, and follow-up closing remarks, we can be sure to use this book when faced by the running doubts in the community of nay-sayers.
