About-

The famous scientist and philosopher Blaise Pascal memorably said that "the heart has its reasons the mind will never know." But too often it's forgotten that Pascal, in referring to the heart's "reasons," was not talking about hunches or cozy feelings. Instead he had in mind our intuitive knowledge of "the first principles of number, time, space, and motion." And he believed God can be known in the same way, so that belief in God has the same justification as scientific and mathematical principles.

Was he right? In Knowing with the Heart, Roy Clouser develops a broad, compelling case for Pascal's position. Against the current climate of religious relativism, Clouser concludes that Christians are entitled to say they know God is real.

Written in clear and nontechnical language, Knowing with the Heart is intended for believers concerned with the credentials of their faith--and those who don't believe in God but are willing to investigate and reconsider.
