Apologists aren’t born that way. These are their stories.
Os Guinness was born to missionary parents and lived in China. They were under house arrest when he was 9, and they sent him back to England, where he spent his teenage years without his parents. He came to faith at the end of his school years after reading Sartre, Nietzsche, Camus, Dostoevsky and many others. His faith was stretched in many ways, including the time he studied under a guru. From the comparison of of other religions to Christianity, he developed a much deeper faith. Ultimately, he believes Christianity because he thinks it is true.
