What people think
Eric Chabot—Founder and Director of Ratio Christi at OSU
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)

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.

“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.”
