Overview

"How can we know any of this is true?" A.N. Wilson asks in this brilliant search for what is true in the Christian faith. "How much of the Christian religion, or what survives of it, is really ture? How much of the Creed can an honest man accept? How much is a modern Christian, however attached he is to the old forms and stories, obliged to admit that the atheists have won the argument?

Beginning with these questions, Wilson undertakes a courageous exploration of faith and doubt. He insists that what is unknowable is not therefore unbelievable. In the end, in the manner of C.S. Lewis, Wilson makes a lucid and strong affirmation of faith in the face of its many modern challenges.
