Reasons of the Heart ePub and PDF Available
This is one of those books that I was slightly underwhelmed by on first reading, but then found a second flick-through and skim-read really beneficial. What I was after was a book unpacking the need for Christian persuasion that goes beyond mere intellectual arguments but engages with deeper, heart-felt "defeater beliefs". What I got instead was a good introduction to what apologetics is, something of its method (of which more in a second), and where perhaps to start on some of the key issues (the existence of evil and suffering, science and faith, the uniqueness of Christ). On my second skim-read, I think I got more out of the book simply because my expectations about what was in it were adjusted.

The author summarises the apologetic endeavour in four headings, which are by no means unique to him but the language he uses probably is. He talks of the "point of contact" (the common ground between the believer and the skeptic), "disclosure" (revealing inconsistencies in the skeptic's argument or worldview), "homecoming" (speaking the gospel into the skeptic's situation) and "plausibility" (showing why the gospel is true). These are then worked out (to an extent) in the examples of different challenges to belief in the remaining chapters.

Overall, I felt the book was thought-provoking but not quite what I was looking for. There are some really good insights that I will take away (his use of the Heidelberg Catechism in explaining and defending the uniqueness of Christ was brilliant), but on most things I still want to do a lot more digging. I've given it four stars because I think it is a good book, albeit a little too discursive at times. I'd like to talk over some of it with someone to really get the most out of it though.
