    From Why does God allow suffering? to Is faith irrational? this book explores and discusses common objections to the Christian faith.

    Drawing on several years of talking through these issues with people looking for answers, Nicky Gumbel offers clear, accessible and reasoned responses to the questions that surround faith and Christianity in the modern world. He goes beyond the logic of each question and applies it to a wider understanding of God’s identity and our own identity, with practical suggestions for dealing with these issues in everyday life.

    ‘Gumbel’s combination of humour, anecdote, metaphysics, quotations from the Bible and complex theology are both persuasive and compelling.’ – The Observer

    The book’s seven chapters are:

    1. Why does God allow suffering?
    2. What about other religions?
    3. Is there a conflict between science and Christianity?
    4. What about the new spirituality?
    5. Does religion do more harm than good?
    6. Is the trinity unbiblical, unbelievable and irrelevant?
    7. Is faith irrational?
