PREFACE

 

There are a number of systematic points of basic kind in the nature of providing a reason for the Christian faith. It is unique in that nothing else provides demonstration or can do so, as is shown in these pages. To present these matters both in overview and in specialised coverage of major issues is the purpose of the current two volume work, specialising in the first section rather in the positive, to find the way, in the second, in the negative, to discard what is not.

Naturally, there is a nexus of impacts, but this is the trend.


The approach in method and the successive and accumulating confirmations is always as startling to mind,  as expected by faith. The living God and Father of Jesus Christ is not distant, except to sin, near to faith, near to reason, and all that is in man attests Him.

Preoccupation with parts is a human failing as great as alcoholism,
for this is alcoholism of the spirit.

It is too easy to proceed by omission, producing reductionism.

In answering a 'problem', you need to heed the question, not select!
In making it worse, you need to realise why!
