Can I Believe?
Ebook, Paperback, Audio Book
Christianity has become the most popular religion in the world—which makes it the most popular Theory of Everything in world history. How did such a strange story—at the centre of which is a victim writhing on a Roman cross—become the world’s most popular explanation of the meaning of life? Why do over two billion people, not all of them psychologically or intellectually deficient, find this to be the best Way of all?
Hans P. Halvorson, Princeton University
“John Stackhouse offers a refreshing combination of intellectual rigor and personal courtesy, conceptual clarity where possible and commendable humility at the limits of our understanding. We all live at the nexus of knowledge, faith, doubt, and decision. John Stackhouse provides for us an invaluable guidebook to that vexed territory.”
Andrew Briggs, Professor of Nanomaterials, University of Oxford
"Here is a book for everyone who wants their life to be in harmony with reality. If you are ready for your beliefs ― and your reasons for choosing them ― to be challenged to the core, then you should read this."
Irshad Manji, Founder, Moral Courage Project, Oxford University
"John Stackhouse strikes a brilliant balance. As a devoted Christian, he has the confidence to proselytize, yet he also has the humility to respect my intelligence, dignity, and humanity as a non-Christian. Be not afraid of his invitation. In our age of raging dogmas, who asks for simple consideration without expectation of outcome? Stackhouse, that's who. In more ways than one, this book is a counter-cultural delight."
