However, my own experience was that the more educated I became, the more sense Christianity made to me. In fact, I believe that faith and intellect are not only compatible,but also mutually strengthening. The smarter I get, the more faith I have, and vice-versa.
At the same time, there are a number of misconceptions perpetuated by well-meaning Christians about the faith. They use language full of jargon and buzzwords to describe the Christian experience. Terms such as "born again" and "salvation" and "grace", although scripturally correct, if used without explanation, can leave others with the wrong impression. And the truth is that until you've been through it, much of this lexicon will not make a great deal of sense.
And its for that reason that I've recently written a new book, entitled "The Reasonable Person- A Lawyer's Look at the Christian Faith". The book describes my own personal faith journey, but more importantly, provdes a meaningful analytical approach to evaluate the claims of Christianity. Using the same analytical and logical tools I use in law practice, the book explores the components of Christian faith.
I'm hoping the book will be published in mid-2011, but if you are interested in learning more, the website is www.reasonable-person.com.
I wish you much success in your legal studies and career.
