Portada
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 2001 - 335 pàgines
From the pen of award-winning author Cornelius Plantinga Jr. comes this book of flesh-and-blood Christian meditations with a theological spine.Building on the success of two earlier editions and now splendidly updated, Beyond Doubt unpacks the deep truths of the Christian faith by raising basic questions like these:
  • What is God like?
  • Why pray?
  • Male and female -- how are we related?
  • What is Jesus doing?
  • What is the shape of the godly life?
  • If the Lord is with us, why do we suffer?
  • How do we face death?

Plantinga addresses such questions through short, vivid meditations, each of which begins with a Bible verse and ends with a brief edifying prayer.Written in the graceful, polished prose that Plantinga is celebrated for, Beyond Doubt will help both new Christians and mature believers to grow in their faith.
