Discovering God: Exploring the Possibilities of Faith
Objections to the Biblical Worldview
Welcome to the Discovering God “Further Reading” site. In order to keep the book free in give-away programs, or very low cost, we moved these articles from the book to this site. Feel free to read and/or download these short explanations of the biblical worldview and how that view responds to some key criticisms leveled by skeptics. We aren’t attempting a full, academic explanation of the issues here. These articles explain the general direction of argument in each area.
See the recommended reading list at the bottom for a fuller coverage.
