The Reason Why

The Case for the Reasonableness of Faith, based on the classic bestseller.Almost a hundred years ago, successful business leader Robert A. Laidlaw wrote a small book, The Reason Why, to explain in a thoughtful and accessible way why he was convinced that faith in God makes sense. He printed the book primarily for his large staff of employees, but it quickly took on a life of its own—and over time fifty million copies were printed of his powerful and winsome work.

Mark Mittelberg has updated and expanded Laidlaw’s discussion of this perennial topic for the twenty-first century. In addition, he highlights some of the more recent evidence relating to these themes.

Have you ever wondered:
Is there a God?
Can the Bible be trusted?
Are we accountable to God?
Whether you’ve asked these questions yourself or have friends who have asked them, you will want to pick up this succinct book of timeless spiritual wisdom, reworked by Mittelberg for a new generation.

My thoughts...

The Reason Why was originally written by Robert A. Laidlaw and published in 1913. Mark Mittelberg has taken it and expanded and updated for modern times. He takes historical evidence and shows why the Bible can be believed, his evidence is thought provoking. If anyone asks you how you know the Bible is true, reading Mittleberg's book will help you answer. The Reason Why has a deep message and I found it to be very helpful in dealing with questions from non believers. He uses examples from everyday life for better understanding the answers.

Christians can share their beliefs with knowledge and ease. I highly recommend this book for anyone that hasn't made the decision to accept Christ and for those who struggle with questions such as, "Why did Jesus have to die?".
