God, Actually : Why God Probably Exists, Why Jesus Was Probably Divine, and Why the 'Rational' Objections to Religion Are Unconvincing
Drawing upon examples from science, politics, history, sociology, and the arts, this intriguing look at the nature of Christian faith answers the biggest questions by appealing to evidence and reason. Rather than disavowing or avoiding its presence, this study acknowledges the vital place of doubt and uncertainty in God's creation and seeks to determine its origin. Rebutting the arguments of atheists such as Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins, it shows how an avid, modern-day faith can be based upon logical deductions from known facts rather than just blind trust. Intriguing and innovative, this is a refreshingly honest and thorough examination of the state of religious belief.

Lewis and other authors who came to faith late in life, Roy Williams understands the issues that trouble atheists and agnostics and gives thoughtful, convincing responses.He takes on the issues that serve as roadblocks to many modern skeptics, from creation and evolution to the religious right." Robert F. Cochran, author, "Faith and Law""
