    Compelling and amazing I wish I had this book when I had my Philosophy of Religion and theology classes back in my university This book nicely bridges the two disciplines together in a compelling manner I like how the book is structured The first half of the book presents the philosophical foundations by which we must measure our faith It draws theories from classical philosophers such as Socrates, Augustine of Hippo, Descartes, Hume, Nietzsche, to the philosophers of our time, say Dawkins, and C S Lewis which is exactly like my Philosophy of Religion class under Fr Masong I miss that class From these philosophical foundations, the author makes an argument for the validity of Christianity on the second half of the book I thought that this book would just be like other Christian apologetics books which prove the Bible using the Bible itself Instead, the author tried as much as he can to measure Christianity and subtly, other religions by the philosophical standards he set up at the beginning of the book.I like how this book arrives at a definition of faith after all the arguments presented Wise, spiritual faith the kind I m advocating is a commitment of trust based on solid, though incomplete, evidence that we re believing in the right things and moving in the best direction 221 222, emphasis mine.I agree that this book resonates a lot to both Christian and non Christian faith seekers alike This book made me remember my first lesson in Catholic theology back in my fi...

    When considering matters of faith, why wait until we re close to death, hoping that we ll have the chance to make our peace and patch things up at the very end when it s too late to discover the adventure or to live out the truth that we might finally find This book, Choosing Your Faith In a World of Spiritual Options , is a good one to consider when you want to reevaluate or rethink the faith that you have Here the author uses faith as a personal relationship or personal decision and not a state of religion or cult The author recommends to consider his Six Paths of Faith arguments as a way to reevaluate what you believe in These paths tried to explain how we come up with each kind of faith and how it affects our chosen fai...

    I know this book has the profound potential to offend many, many people, but I still have to give it 5 stars.It s basic It covers a vital and timeless question which applies to all humans It s clearly written and well organized and executed It gives helpful references and sections on further reading for those who want material That said the offensive parts the author is a Christian, and explains why he thinks other religions are wrong He talks about questions of evidence and questions of thought process If you re a member of those religions mentioned, you could very well be offended.But it would be a shame The whole point of this book is that we should be thinking, examining, questioning, affirming or disproving our religion and spiritual questions Even when I was a member of one of the picked on religions, I still agreed with him about the fact that the truth should never be afraid to question, because it...

    I found this book to be a bit on the simplistic and deceptive side It starts off by presenting itself as an unbiased guide to help you think through major issues and come to your own conclusions about what you should believe However, as the book goes on, the author starts to place what he believes to be the answer e.g., conservative Evangelical Protestant Christianity into many of the questions, and begins subtly and later not so subtly guiding you to th...

    New to your ideas of considering if you believe in God Read this Already comfortable in your faith, but are open to taking your relationship with Him further Read this Excellent book that strengthens every aspect of your faith, particularly this attacked by this secular world.

    An apologetic response to the Christian faith Great read I would recommend this book to anyone who has doubts and questions regarding faith in an Almighty God.

  7. says:

    Great book to know and distinguish how and why people follow the faith they are in now and a great tool to win people from other faith to the Christian faith.

  8. says:

    Have you ever considered how you established your spiritual attitudes Has it any logic Can belief, although not of perfect continuity, be of sound doctrine and reasoning After all belief and knowledge are different Are your convictions founded on absences therein and without question In speaking of Paul and James of The Bible, Mittelberg says, These two skeptics turned star witnesses served notice to the world, and to us as we consider and weigh the Christian truth claims, that this faith is built on a solid foundation of facts Although this book is not a restatement of Anselm of Canterbury s I do not seek to understand in order that I...

    Extremely biased, one sided and poorly put together Probably the worst Christian apologetics book I ve read.

    SCRATCHING A DIVINE ITCH In Choosing Your Faith Mark Mittelberg explores the different paths that lead one to accepting a faith Relativism, Tradition, Authority, Intuition, Mysticism, Logic and Evidence In the second part of the book he shows how to use Logic and Evidence, with the addition of Intuition and Mysticism as well as some of Authority , to critically look at the religion you are exploring or the one you already belong to Do not think that you will have an opinion after reading the book rather, you ll have a set of tools, as well as some brush influence of PR for Christianity The author is openly critical to Buddhism, Islam and Mormonism while giving a very good set of scientifically proved facts from the Bible he quotes many famous atheists become Christians and is seemingly passionate about his faith Of course it influenced the book greatly but if you are accepting of all faiths, or is already a Christian, or simply believe in Christ and everyone s freedom of choice, author s blunt preferences should not disturb you much For your tolerance you close the book fresh with desire to deeper examine the field of religion and with some astonishing facts and quotes about the Bible and Christianity, such as No archeological discovery has ever controverted a single biblical reference Scores of archeological findings have been made which confirm in clear outline or exact detail hi...
