Reasons to Believe

Can a Compulsive Thinker Also Be a Believer?

Some say that in order to have faith, one must “check his brain at the door.” Yet as a compulsive thinker (such that no twelve-step program would be able to cure me), I challenge this notion. In a recent talk (given in August at Oceanview Baptist Church in San Pedro, California), I explore what I call “best explanation apologetics”—an approach to thinking about Christianity that demonstrates the faith’s truth and viability. Additionally, I share my conversion to Christianity and pursuit of a reasonable faith. Below is a link to the talk on YouTube.
