The past as prologue: God adumbrations in many daily forms Wondering about God: an argument from René Descartes and Stanislaw Lem In the beginning: an argument from God Secondary worlds: an argument from literary theory Bright wings and wobbling lighthouses: an argument from Gerard Manley Hopkins and Virginia Woolf Night thoughts and day dreams: an argument from Francisco Goya Meeting the unexpected: an argument from Jesus.
Veteran apologist Jim Sire gives us eyes to see the myriad "signals of transcendence" all around us that point to the specific truth of God in Christ. Focusing on the power of good literature--even from those who deny the existence of God--enables us to perceive and testify to God's reality in ways that rational argument alone cannot. ~ from publisher description.
