Another good tool to have in your apologetics toolbox.

This book is an excellent source of abbreviated answers to questions that weak Christians may have at times with regards to issues in the Christian faith.

The book came unblemished, so I feel good about actually giving it as a gift.

Format: Paperback
This book is a simpler version of many other Josh McDowell books, like "Evidence that Demands a Verdict." I first read this book after going to church for ten years, but finding myself wanting the have faith in my heart but not in my mind. This book did a nice job of convincing me to open my eyes and look further. Certainly, Mr. McDowell does a nice job of presenting his arguments clearly and concisely, but overall the book lacks depth and completeness. He tends to justify faith through the use of the Bible, which could be a problem to a skeptic looking for persuasive arguments. A beginning Christian will find a lot of interesting material to support and extend their faith, but a strong skeptic will at best only be persuaded to look at more evidence. This book might be ideal for a younger Christian or skeptic, who wants to understand the basis for certain beliefs. Overall, I would recommend this because it is a quick read, but don't expect it to be a complete reference guide.

Looking for a powerful yet 'readable in one sitting' answer to many of your Bible questions? Need an inexpensive witnessing tool for your church or personal outreach? There is no finer resource at this price to get into the hands of people you meet who have sincere questions about Christianity. Not intended to be exhaustive, but a great door opener for the serious seeker. If every church in America could order a case of these for its members to first read then pass along to a friend, imagine the impact for eternity! Every church member should be acquainted with the issues covered in this book to be better equipped to handle the questions they are too often asked. Must reading!

Format: Paperback
This is an easy book written for Christians who are not "intellectual". This is not a scholarly book, but given the "simple" audience it targets, this book is most of the time well argued and accurate. Its very broad coverage will provide a lot of various information. It has 5 main sections:
Tthe authority of the Bible, by Prof. P. Comfort (Professor of New Testament
Creation and evolution, by Prof. president H M Morris & prof. W Bradley (Professor of Physics)
Israel, the choosen people, by Prof. Hildebrandt (Professor of Old Testament)
The church of Jesus Christ by Prof. P. Comfort (Professor of New Testament)
The end times, by P R Fink (Professor of Pastoral ministry)
The only weak part in the book is about about creation, (written by Morris). Although Morris has a good critic of evolution, I do not think that he is right in asserting a young age for the earth or the origin of fossils and mountains through a global cataclysm. (see the books of Ross, Hugh). Better critics of evolution can be found in "Evolution: a theory in crisis" by Denton, Michael; "Darwin on trial" by Johnson, Phillip E; "Darwin's black box" by Behe, Michael.
Some Atheists (called "Internet infidels") are immorally writing are trying to degrade the books of McDowell by using lying arguemtn son their site. Theri lies and ignorance of the matter is laid bare by the J P Holding at:
[...]
The New Testament was composed in the 1st century, with the books that were written under the authority of the apostles. As a few centuries later some would doubt some books (such as Jude, Hebrews, Revelation), the churches had to gather and defend their appartenance to the Canon.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By "heisrisen" on December 29, 2000
Format: Paperback
I am a Christian myself, but this book didn't offer me much in the way of logical arguments. Serious topics are skimmed over simplistically and unconvincingly, and it is occasionally embarrassing, with them insisting that evolution must be wrong because it violates the second law of thermodynamics! <Sigh>! I also disagree with many of their views, and found that the answers they gave would hardly convince many skeptics. It would be quite useful as a first apologetics book for people who aren't well-versed in philosophy or deeper dealings with subjects, though I don't recommend it.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Papa Ski on November 14, 2004
Format: Paperback
This book may not have all of the answers but it is a great starting point for some of the tough questions that we all wonder about. I would highly recommend this for any new Christians or people searching for more perspectives about the Christian faith. I think it is important to keep in mind that this is a limited perspective on questions facing the Christian faith. Nevertheless this makes for a good book for beginners to the Christian faith or for young adults who are starting to question their beliefs.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ND Protestant on January 8, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent source of abbreviated answers to questions that weak Christians may have at times with regards to issues in the Christian faith. What it is NOT is an in-depth study. It is also NOT recommended for non-believers because no amount of apologetics will convince them of anything. The answers to the questions are only a page and a half or less in length, so if you are looking for a more complete apologetic, take a look at "Evidence that Demands a Verdict" by McDowell or "The Lie: Evolution" by Ken Ham. Some websites such as [...] or [...] or [...] are useful too. They all have much more to offer. Still, I would never discourage anyone from buying this book. It is clear, consise, and was useful to me during my earlier times of questioning the faith. If you are struggling, go ahead and buy this and have your doubts put to rest.
