Does God exist? Did Moses part the Red Sea? Did Jesus really rise from the dead? This book provides a fresh approach to exploring the reality of God and religious events. The book demonstrates how it makes sense to ask about the truth of core Christian claims - claims often taken in modern society to reflect something about the person asking the question rather than the subject of the claim. By drawing on contemporary philosophy of science this book breaks new ground by comparing the scientific community with the religious community. We live in an age where issues of religious tolerance are crucial. Taking this community-based approach, the book argues that tolerance is only possible when questions in both science and religion are considered to be about a reality independent of us.
