A link to a biography on this site is provided in the introduction to the chapter. [Posted 12/2/2022]

Pontius Pilate asked, "What is truth," which was a question Jesus had already answered in the High Priestly Prayer in John 17:17 saying, "Thy word is truth." Dr. Neil Shenvi is the author of Why Believe? A Reasoned Approach to Christianity published by Crossway. He was interviewed on reformation21's podcast dated September 28, 2022 and titled "Why Believe?" He said the following: "If its true it doesn't matter if you like it ... if its true, it's just true." Dr. Shenvi and the interviewers discussed the relationship of natural and special revelation in the course of their brief discussion as well as the author's experiences as a researcher at Yale and Duke apologetically confronting his academic colleagues with Christ.
