Pastors with a more philosophical bent will enjoy Taking Pascal’s Wager: Faith, Evidence and the Abundant Life (IVP Academic) by Michael Rota. Rota argues that Pascal’s wager– a classic argument for the existence of God–is still relevant in the 21st century, and engages a variety of themes including decision theory, the problem of evil, the historicity of the resurrection, miracles and much more. As William Lane Craig says, the book is “rigorous but readable” and “challenges the mind while appealing to the heart.”
