The Reason Why

Nearly a hundred years ago, businessman Robert A. Laidlaw wrote and published a small book, The Reason Why (Faith Makes Sense), for distribution to his employees. His purpose in writing was to explain his conviction that the Christian faith was utterly reasonable. Before long, an astounding fifty million copies of the slim volume were printed.

Laidlaw's bestseller has now been updated and expanded with a new release this year from Tyndale House Publishers. Author and apologist Mark Mittelberg (with a foreword by Ken Blanchard), pulls off an impressive feat in improving on a classic. The chapter titles lay out the logical flow and conversational tone of the book:
  • Matters of Faith Really Matter
  • Is There a God?
  • Can the Bible Be Trusted?
  • Are We Accountable to God?
  • Who Was Jesus and What Was His Purpose?
  • Is Divine Forgiveness Available?
  • What Do I Need to Do?
  • My Decision
  • Next Steps
A "postscript," entitled, "The Soldier's Choice," presents a compelling conclusion that combines with the rest of the book's content to make this a powerful tool for leading skeptics and seekers to an encounter with the living Christ.
