In Defence of Christianity is a short book of Christian apologetics. Acknowledging that reason is not the basis of faith, Brian Hebblethwaite sets out some of the main reasons that can be advanced in support of the Christian faith. He defends the view that belief in God makes most sense of aworld that has come up with moral and creative persons and communities, including all that they have produced in the way of culture, mysticism, and sainthood. He also argues that the history of religions, and in particular the history of Israel and the story of Christ and his Church, offers the bestdiagnosis and solution of the problems that afflict humanity and the most hopeful picture of the ultimate future of creation

Editorial Reviews

`Hebblethwaite puts us in his debt, quite simply, because he has the courage to argue for the rationality of religious faith in general, and to provide a cogent apologetic for Christianity in particular. ... This approach, together with Hebblethwaite's engaing style, will enable a wide rangeof readers to profit from this essay.'Dr John Saxbee, Bishop of Lincoln, Church Times
