by Rheinallt Nantlais Williams. This is a curious little book whose title can be a little misleading. Namely, this book doesn't deal that much with hard facts which support or go against Christianity. It focuses more on correcting the misconceptions which the 20th century has about Christianity and faith in general. Even though this book was written two decades ago, it feels very fresh and almost all of its contents are relevant today too. Mr. Williams' writing style is also closer to poetry than prosaic fact-listing.

[This book was called Faith Facing Facts when it was first published in England.]

Rheinallt Williams explains in the Preface to this 1973 book, "This book develops the theme of a public lecture I was privileged to deliver at the University College, Cardiff... I have attempted to show that the believer, far from being an escapist or a dealer in theological antiques, witnesses to the most real and relevant fact man was intended to know... no claim is made here to 'prove' faith. I am attempting, rather, to remove some of the hindrances to it... I write in the conviction that the supreme Truth, which man is unable to reach, has itself reached man by assuming human nature, and this fact constitutes the foundation of the believer's knowledge of God and of the good news to which faith is the response." (Pg. 9)

He argues, "The attempt to slay faith with logic was doomed to failure for a number of reasons. Suffice it for our purpose to note what has often been pointed out---that the weapon used by the skeptic actually boomeranged on himself. For it the only statements that make sense are those which can be tested by the senses, how can the statement that says THIS have meaning, seeing that it is about a principle of thinking, not an observation of fact? When the logical positivist argues for his principle, aren't we witnessing another example of a man sawing off the branch on which he is sitting?" (Pg. 30-31)

He acknowledges, "The success of science speaks for itself. But how does faith fare? Isn't it true that, far from catering to our physical comfort, faith warns against too much of it, and even exalts self-denial?... Further, faith is commonly regarded as irrelevant to facts. Penicillin effects cures, but faith-healing is looked upon as the consolation of the credulous. Nor can you check up on the promises of faith as you can on the predictions of science. Saints may be perceptive enough to see blessings in disguise, but most people have to be content with seeing the disguise only." (Pg. 65)

He concludes on the note, "Let it not be imagined that to trust in the grace of God, rather than in our own merits, is just an easy substitute for moral earnestness. Such trust entails a new attitude in facing facts, not less efforts in tackling them... In saying faith is born through the stages or hearing, repenting and trusting, I don't mean that we can bring it to birth by observing a set of instructions, as a cook follows a recipe or a pharmacist makes up a prescription." (Pg. 132)

This rather understated book may interest some modern readers in Chrsitian apologetics.

This is a curious little book whose title can be a little misleading. Namely, this book doesn't deal that much with hard facts which support or go against Christianity. It focuses more on correcting the misconceptions which the 20th century has about Christianity and faith in general. Even though this book was written two decades ago, it feels very fresh and almost all of its contents are relevant today too. Mr. Williams' writing style is also closer to poetry than prosaic fact-listing. The final portrait of the Faith emerging from these pages is very beautiful, accurate and luminous. This book is a bit like "Orthodoxy" by G.K. Chesterton in that respect. I don't recommend this book to those who are just finding out what Christianity is all about or those who are looking for answers to specific questions. However, this is ideal for those who know the basics of Christianity and want to refresh their views on the Faith. They will find this little-known gem a very rewarding experience.
