What people think
Dr. Eric Tully—Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages—Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
“James Rochford writes in an engaging style with vivid illustrations and humorous examples. Reading the book seems like sitting down and discussing these issues with the author over coffee; it is conversational in the best sense and reflects Rochford’s years of ministry experience doing just that. While the issues are complex, he succinctly and clearly demonstrates again and again that those questions that seem like barriers to faith turn out to be evidence for the truth of God and the Bible. I highly recommend this book for those just beginning their search and for those who need a reminder that Christian faith is not blind faith.”
Dr. Robert C. Newman Emeritus Professor of NT & Christian Evidences
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.

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).
