In Evidence of Christianity, Paley argues
for the truth of Christianity by providing his readers
with evidence in favor of the Bible's authenticity and the existence of
God and miracles. Paley considers many historical and biblical factors;
for example, he considers the legitimacy of ancient Jewish prophecy, the
fulfillment of prophecies in the New Testament, and the early
propagation of Christianity during the first century. One way that
Paley argues for the authenticity of the Bible is by citing the
significant overlap that is observed in the individual accounts of
Christ found in the New Testament. Paley is very diplomatic in his
presentation. He considers several objections to the evidence that he
has offered. He presents several sides of every issue and resolves
disputes by appealing to the strongest body of evidence. As Paley was
an influential philosopher, many of the points in this book directly
respond to the work of other philosophers of his time. Paley's book
does an excellent job of piecing together the facts which form the
foundation of the Christian faith.
