“The chief advantage of Rochford’s text is that he keeps the content high without burdening his readers with academic language. His writing style is casual and personal and yet he does not skimp on difficult questions. He illustrates his points with engaging pop culture examples while making contact with numerous hard-hitting disciplines—history, archeology, theology, philosophy and science.”

Aimed especially at college students and seekers, Evidence Unseen shows us that Christian faith is not a blind leap in the dark, but a humble dependence on the God of the Bible, who has revealed himself through substantial evidence.

I highly recommend Evidence Unseen for your own search for what life is all about, and for helping others in their searches.
