Van Mastricht, Petrus
Christian faith is a matter for the emotions, but also a matter for the intellect. Donald MacLeod delves into not only what he believes, but why he believes, and how that belief affects how he lives his life. Arguing for the importance of reason and logic in personal faith, he equips the reader to resist relativist influences that are permeating the twenty–first–century church. Winsomely written, Professor MacLeod shows once again why he is a beloved teacher and writer.
Donald Macleod retired as the Principal of the Free Church of Scotland College, Edinburgh in 2010. Regarded as one of Britain’s most prominent theologians he has written extensively on a wide range of issues.
…he not only immediately disarms you but also intrigues you enough to encourage you to want to read on. You will then be invited to think patiently and clearly with him about what philosophers have often thought is the greatest and most fundamental question of all, namely why there is something and not nothing. -Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi
Every Christian will benefit from this delightful book. But as a guide to the basics of the faith for new disciples it should prove invaluable. -David Strain, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi
After reading Faith Undaunted, I can’t help thinking of the elderly lady’s reaction when she heard J. C. Ryle preach: ‘He’s no Bishop. I could understand every word!’ And so…Donald Macleod blesses us with his vintage clarity in this stirring, searching, sustaining apology for ‘Apostles’ Creed’ faith. -Dale Ralph Davis, Respected Author and Old Testament Scholar
