Just like God’s rational nature grounds rational truth and His moral nature grounds moral truth, God’s aesthetic nature is the grounding of aesthetic truth.
According to New Atheist Sam Harris, “Faith is generally nothing more than the permission religious people give one another to believe things strongly without evidence.”* Coming from an atheist, this view is not surprising. But when it comes from believers? Recently, I heard a Christian argue, “Providing a reason for your faith is ultimately fruitless, regardless of how logical your reasons might be.

Can you imagine the shockwaves throughout the Christian world?
An atheist's request for a miracle to prove God's existence requires a careful answer. Brett offers that response. “Why won’t God heal amputees?” The question caught me by surprise.
For some believers, apologetics has a questionable reputation. It amounts to intellectually bullying or argumentative one-upsmanship. It's all head and no heart. However, is this an accurate view of apologetics?
