About-

Being at Home in the World is a book of Christian Apologetics. But Mark McLeod-Harrison and Phil Smith don't defend Christian faith; instead, they invite readers into faith. In the course of making this invitation, the authors raise suspicions against modern naturalism, offer respectful criticisms of major religions, and explain how Christian beliefs provide an organizing center of a flourishing human life. Their invitation to Christian faith is philosophically sophisticated, but it is also honest and personal; McLeod-Harrison and Smith tell their own stories of how they grew up as Christians and why they remain believers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"This is an important book. It is a heart-felt, candid, honest, and winsome testimony of two Christian scholars who are concerned, passionately, about living a mature, integrated, Christian life. Professors teaching foundational courses on the Christian integration of faith, life, and learning will find Being at Home in the World a thoughtful, useful, and compelling common reading for their students."
--Steven D. Fratt
Trinity International University.

"Being at Home in the World is a fresh, original treatment of the ways Christian faith continues to make sense in the postmodern world and of how postmodern people might, with the help of Christian faith, begin to make better sense of their lives. The authors write in a very personal way about the kinds of reasons many readers will actually find persuasive, focusing especially on what it means to flourish as a human person."
--C. Stephen Evans
Baylor University
