When I sat down to read it, I saw why.
The Defender's Guide for Life's Toughest Questions is based on questions presented to Christians by those who don't know God; more specifically, they are questions raised by atheists. Mr. Comfort has taken their questions and provided biblical answers so that if you are ever confronted by these issues, you will know how to respond.
One criticism that I've read about this book is that the answers aren't in-depth enough. I don't find that to be so. Please remember that Mr. Comfort is answering many different questions on a broad range of subjects in a limited amount of space; I believe that he has succeeded at what he set out to do. At any rate, this book is a starting place. If you need more information than he was able to provide here in the space he had available, you can always do more research.
Christians are called by the Lord to be prepared to give an answer to those who would ask us about our faith, our hope; Ray Comfort has done some of the work for you (at least on some of the questions you will face). Read this book and be prepared. Read it and be blessed.
I was provided with a free copy of this book by New Leaf Publishing for purposes of review; I was not required to give a positive review, simply an honest one.
Another thing I appreciated with this book is that Ray doesn't avoid answering "hard" questions. He gives a clear, Biblical answer, and doesn't apologize for standing on the Word of God as the ultimate Authority.Read more ›
* Preface - which is pretty enlightening all in itself
* 1. Humanity: Rights and Suffering
* 2. The Bible: Biblical and Theological Issues

* 5. Religion: God and Atheism
* Appendix 1 & 2 and Endnotes
In each section, Ray takes a question someone has asked and refutes it. Most of the answers start with Ray asking a question to show how the original question is really based in a worldview thought process, regardless of how the question is worded or what the question actually is. He uses a normal everyday type activity or situation as an example to draw from, then applies the scriptures to back it up.
Some of Ray's answers are short and others are longer, but they are all on point and easily understandable. And the examples he uses will help to remind you how to answer the question, if it is ever asked of you.
I will be referring to this book for a long time. Thank you Ray for writing it and making it understandable for us laymen.
I received a complimentary copy of the book, from New Leaf Publishing Group, Inc. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Not really a guide per-se, more like stories of some of the questions he's encountered and what he said. I thought it was very dry and unhelpful. Read morePublished 19 days ago by GimpyNinja
