True and reasonable (book by Douglas Jacoby).

From the preface:

If you are like me, you may have believed that there is a God – or hoped so – but, being unaware of the evidence, have had doubts. Since true faith is in the heart and not just in the head, we must be convinced of the reality of God:

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Believing  that God exists is essential, and so Section 1 of the book demonstrates that the existence of God is reasonable.

To be convinced that the Bible is God’s word, or message to us, we need more than a casual acquaintance with it. We need to explore, to open our hearts and minds, and then we will see that God’s message to man is both true and reasonable. With this in mind, the second section of the book covers a number of issues related to the trustworthiness of the Bible.

In the concluding chapter, making an informed decision is urged. It is my prayer that by the time you reach the end of the book, your personal conviction will be that Christianity is both true and reasonable, and that you will be eager to become a disciple of Jesus if you are not one.

PS: Christmas is next week! So we think again, again…. about the reason for the season. So He was born. Of course he was, how else could He have become human. And the long story starts. We go back so that we can launch forward. The birth of Jesus the Christ is true, and it is reasonable to say that, for Him to be born Christ, son of God, he must have been born to a virgin, conceived without man.
