This two-volume book by the philosopher and theologian William Paley, published in 1794, was considered so important that it was required reading for Cambridge students (including Charles Darwin) well into the nineteenth century. This classic work of apologetics is divided into three parts in which Paley discusses the historical evidence for Christianity and the miracles of Jesus Christ. In the second volume, Paley addresses popular objections to the truth of Christianity, the character of Jesus Christ, the candour of the New Testament writers, the differences between Islam and Christianity, the Jewish rejection of Christ, and how the faith spread throughout the world. Paley's intellectual defence of Christianity was one of the most popular of the day, and his work is considered a direct forerunner to the contemporary theory of intelligent design.
