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. The author presents this evidence quite readably under four headings: internal evidence, external evidence, and evidence from Scripture, divided into fulfilled prophecy and the historical reliability of its message. I highly recommend Evidence Unseen for your own search for what life is all about, and for helping others in their searches.
In my opinion, this is the perfect book for the skeptic as well as the person who is just starting to learn about the role of Christian apologetics. I have already handed out some copies to people in our campus ministry and I continue to give some to seekers as well. I don’t want for one second to say this book is strictly for the young seeker. It can be used as a resource for any age group. My advice is to pick up a copy and give it to a friend. Time’s a wastin! (Read more here)Eric Chabot—Founder and Director of Ratio Christi at OSU
I saw James Rochford present at Xenos Church’s Summer Institute and was so impressed that I immediately purchased his book Evidence Unseen: Exposing the Myth of Blind Faith (New Paradigm 2013) and I wasn’t disappointed. Rochford covers a lot of ground in roughly 200 pages. He moves from the internal evidence for God to the external evidence for God. He does so with wit and a crisp writing style. Where he truly shines is in discussing the role of prophecy in apologetics and evangelism (Read more).Matt Rawlings–Teaching Pastor at Revolution
