Format: Hardcover
This book merely whets one's appetite. The arguments presented are truly compelling evidences for God's existence as the title suggests, but they lack the detailed substance that the topic requires. But readers are forced to dig elsewhere to resolve missing details. This entire book is like a preface to the real arguments. It's best feature are it's quotes, bibliographies and endnotes. These features lead the reader on to more meaty details. This book does a valuable service in introducing (scientific and theological) laymen to the true arguments and debates that surround the evidences presented here. The writing is geared to people who are just getting acquainted with the arguments. Folks with some study behind them will be disappointed. Look through the notes and bibliography and if you've read 50% of what's there, you can pass the book along to an uninitiated friend. However, another valuable service of the book is that it provides easy to remember analogies that readers can carry with them into discussions on God's existence. If you've ever been in a discussion and couldn't quite remember the facts of your case, their handy analogies will prove a big help. I believe it's still worth having as an introduction and for it's references. Their writing style is easy and fluid as well.

Really good book! I would recommend this book to anybody. While their chapter on prophecy hints their dispensational slant (referring to the significance of Israel occupying Palestine and the dates 1948 & 1967), they don't spend a lot of time on the subject. The book makes a strong case for the existence of God that a non-Christian could read and understand. I enjoyed their lists of books at the end of each chapter for people who want to read further on the subjects discussed.

Format: Paperback
Just as its title says, 20 Compelling Evidences takes a deep look at how we can know for sure that God exists. The Foreword is an interesting discussion about our relevant doubts and how to find answers for them. Then the evidences begin. Commencing with reality, knowledge, and existence, the authors reach outward to the Universe, life's origins, and a fallen world, and then take a hard look at the Bible, its reliability, prophecies, and wisdom and our Lord's own life and those who have lived for Him. It is written with humor and fact, embellished with quotes ranging from Scripture to Lily Tomlin, firmly seated in the Bible, a wide range of data, and intense research. Closing materials include useful indices and a Reader's Guide which will help with focusing the information and in group discussions.

Graduate of several prestigious schools including Dallas Theological Seminary and Oxford University, head of Reflection Ministries, and prolific author, Kenneth Boa brings wide experience and knowledge to this book. Professor of Christian Apologetics and Christian researcher, Robert Bowman provides a strong base of facts. 20 Compelling Evidences is the most recent book in an honorable genre with a long lineage, going all the way back to our Christian forebears and the New Testament era. It still behooves Christians to know what they believe, why they believe it, and how to voice these beliefs to honest questioners and as well as scoffers. This book both grips the interest and provides ammunition for the beleaguered Christian. - Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

My favorite hobbies are reading philosophy and Christian apologetics, but it's hard to find anyone who enjoys discussing them. Most people really don't care that inductive arguments never lead to certain truth (Kant), or for puzzling out the implications of God having a nature (or not) (Aquinas/Plantiga), etc. My wife and daughter roll their eyes at me before I get 2 sentences out. And if I play devil's advocate and argue (for example) that Stalin and Mao were virtuous saviors of their people, people think I really believe that and keep their children away.

But while I enjoy intellectual puzzles, the core of philosophy and apologetics are questions of utmost practicality and vital importance. Does evil exist? Are any of the following people evil, and why: Hitler, Osama bin Laden, George W Bush, Barack Obama, James Dobson? Is human life morally distinct from animal life? Your philosophical and religious assumptions guide many things you do, from what you serve for supper, to how you vote and whether you have an abortion.

So since I'm a terminal egghead, how can I discuss these vital issues with normal folks who don't care for the jargon or detail? This book is well written and easy, even entertaining, to read; and it lays out a comprehensive framework for reasonable Christian belief. Yes, it leaves things out and relies on intuition when a philosopher would write pages or books of arguments; but it makes solid points which have philosophy and theology books to back them up. I don't know any other book which covers the whole picture as succinctly and readably. So it's Christian Philosophy and Apologetics for Dummies -- a cookbook collection of great arguments for God and Christianity for Normal People. Now the real test -- will my wife and daughter read it?
