Description

Many people assume that Christianity is simply a nice story for kids, a comforting crutch to lean on, or completely out of touch with modern life.

In this warm, honest book, Ben Shaw invites sceptical readers to think again. He outlines seven reasons why Christianity is worth considering—or reconsidering—not least because it offers some thought-provoking and rational answers to our deepest questions.

Ben Shaw was brought up in a non-Christian home and held many of the common objections to faith himself. He writes with warmth and empathy to encourage readers to investigate the person of Jesus and decide for themselves whether Christianity has credible answers to the meaning of life.

Ben Shaw does not write this book from some theological ivory tower. He writes as a man in the midst of a life-threatening battle with cancer. I found that that fact gave every chapter such a ring of authenticity. This book is clear, well-argued, compelling, vivid and personal. I found it such a help and thoroughly commend it.

Ben Shaw writes humbly and powerfully from his own experience and is always honest, clear and engaging. This is an excellent book for anyone prepared to give the Christian faith a look—or at least open to being persuaded that it might be worth doing so.

Amy Orr-Ewing

Author, Where is God in All the Suffering?

Drawing on his own experience of discovery, Ben writes with openness, humour and clarity, pointing us towards a truly stunning prospect—that Jesus Christ was God in human form and that he is worth knowing and following. This is a must-read for anyone considering if there might be more to life.

"A helpful book to give to friends and family with doubts and questions about Christianity"

Andy Cassler, May 10th 2021

Shaw notes that he first began to think about God and the Bible after the death of his mother over four decades ago, and his curiosity gave way to finding intellectually and spiritually satisfying answers to life’s biggest questions. Shaw covers existential questions, historical questions, and theological questions while providing practical, digestible answers for readers.... continue reading

Shaw explains that Jesus is the most influential person in history by looking at his words of conviction, words of controversy, his conduct, and miracles. Shaw ultimately invites his readers to pick up one of the Gospels and see for themselves.... continue reading

“A good book to give to anyone willing to think about the Christian message”

(Review written for 'Seven Reasons to (Re)Consider Christianity')

I've just finished reading through this book with a view to possibly buying multiple copies to give away in conjunction with some evangelistic outreach from our church. For anyone who is willing to spend some time thinking through the claims of Christianity (whether for the first time or after a long-forgotten Christian upbringing perhaps), I reckon this would be a helpful starting point, combined with the offer to meet up afterwards and discuss any questions that it might prompt. It's a very readable and accessible book, written, I think, in an engaging style suited to people who are genuinely interested in (re-)examining the Christian faith but who don't want to read something too long or heavy.
For me there were just a few minor negatives (although certainly not show-stoppers!):
A few typos have made it through the proof-reading net (p20, p94, p112);
The author (wrongly in my view) plumps for a late-date Exodus (p33); and
In the retelling of Jesus' miracle of turning water into wine (on p56), despite John 2:6 clearly stating that there were 6 water jars, the author tells us there were 7!
