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, such as 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. 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. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer

PRODUCT DETAIL

William S Paley

William Paley heard radio for the first time on a crystal set in 1925. He was then 24 and working for his father's prosperous cigar-manufacturing company. The Paley family bought advertising time on the new medium and saw sales of their La Palina cigars increase tremendously as a result. In 1928, Paley became the owner of the struggling Columbia radio network. From this humble beginning, he built the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS), branching out into television in the 1950s. CBS became a central player, first in radio, then in television. For years its chief rival was the National Broadcasting Company (NBC). The American Broadcasting Company (ABC) joined them later. Bill Paley had a consummate feel for both the advertising possibilities of radio and television and the tastes of their audiences. Programming, he said, "must appeal to either the emotions or the self-interest [of the audience member], not merely to his intellect." His approach was hugely successful: CBS attracted enormous audiences, which enabled it to attract big-spending advertisers. While Paley concentrated on developing lowbrow popular programming, his deputy, Frank Stanton, and his star journalist, Edward R. Murrow, developed superior news, educational, and cultural programming, thereby giving CBS an image of class, so that it was called "the Tiffany network." Paley lived the life of a socialite and art collector as well as businessman. He was married several times and was father and stepfather to four children. As he aged and network dominance of broadcasting declined, he lost or ceded (depending on the analysis) control of his empire to Laurence Tisch, chairman of the Loewes Corporation, and CBS went through a period of internal battling and retrenchment. But Paley was a strong leader and left the important legacy of using some of the huge profits of popular programming to support superior news programming.
