About the Book
In Christianity for Doubters, mathematician Granville Sewell looks at a series of issues that cause Christians to doubt. The first two chapters effectively counter the widely believed idea that science can explain how we got here without design. The remaining chapters examine, from a non-fundamentalist point of view, some of the theological issues that educated Christians struggle with, including problems with the Bible, the idea of a resurrection, and the problem of pain. Although these theological problems are more difficult, the author shows that some of the most important insights into both the scientific and theological problems can be made by applying a little common sense, without relying on ideas that can only be understood by the ""experts."" ""In Christianity for Doubters, Granville Sewell nicely smoothes many of the speed bumps that might inhibit some from making the important journey to Jesus Christ."" --Robert Marks II, Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Baylor University ""If non-believers could learn about Christianity from this book, there would be a lot more believers in the world."" --Tom Nagle, United Methodist pastor, El Paso, Texas (retired) Granville Sewell is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Texas El Paso.
