Typical circular logic that will leave many people disappointed.

This book is a wonderful example of just such "rational argument" that at times is very convincing.
Dan Bradshaw
I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to find out if the Bible is reliable or not.

Format: Paperback
This is a good starting place for someone looking for religion or looking to increase their faith in Christianity. It is difficult reading, but the format would work well as a reference guide. I truly glory in the things in this book and I hope it can advance the Christian cause. I do consider myself a Christian believer, but putting myself on the outside looking in, I can see there is no slam dunk here. As one can readily see from previous reviews, the physical evidence can be explained away. There is some very compelling evidence in this book, but the vast majority of the evidence consists of reasoning (though I believe the reasoning for the most part to be sound) with the accounts written from within the Bible itself, or theologians commenting on it. The most credible accounts are from the Jewish historian, Josephus, though in recent decades even some of his accounts have come into question. There is reference to some lost Old Testament cities that have been recovered in recent decades.

I do not base my faith on whether or not there is physical evidence to support it, as it would truly be shaky ground to stand on, especially in this day. On the other hand, it was Austin Farrar that said, "Though argument does not create conviction, lack of it destroys belief. What seems to be proved may not be embraced; but what no one shows the ability to defend is quickly abandoned. Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish." This book is a wonderful example of just such "rational argument" that at times is very convincing.

There is no doubt that there is power in evidence to advance the nurturing of faith.

Format: Paperback
If you are a truth seeking agnostic or atheist who does not categorically deny the possiblity of the supernatural you should read this book. You should also read this book if you are a Christian who does not know why you believe what you believe. This is the most comprehensive defense of Christianity that I have found.The case it makes is so convincing I was at first "certain" the evidence had to be tainted somehow. But, by using the references given in the footnotes, both for and against the argument, I verified (as can anyone else) that the evidence is presented fairly. This book is very dense and it will take perseverance to follow the argument from beginning to end. However, it is very well divided into individual criticisms which do not depend on the answers given in other areas. I recommend this book highly to everyone who is willing to spend time and thought searching for the truth. A less comprehensive, and perhaps more readable, book covering much of the same material is The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel.

This book changed my life. It created a small seed of hope in me that eventually flourished into a life and faith that I thought was impossible to attain in this existence. It was laying around the house (actually strategically placed by my wife) and I thought it was one-sided Christian propaganda. But I picked it up one day and the most wonderful process begin. I recommend it highly if you want to start the search for something real and deep and lasting that can become the treasure of your life.

After reading through the other reviews of this book, it became clear that many of the readers of this book don't understand where this book "came from."
Dr. Josh McDowell, at one point in time, was an atheist. He was very angry at Christians. This book started out as his attempt to disprove Christianity. As he did more and more research, the evidence against his argument overwhelmed him.
As a result he is now one of the finest men of God around, and a great speaker. Read this book if you haven't already.

Format: Paperback
Josh is one of this generation's foremost apologists for the Christian faith, having begun his journey in college as a skeptic himself setting out to disprove the Bible. To his amazement, the evidence was overwhelming and 'demanded a verdict'. The vast range of source material cited (and updated for new audiences) from personal research and extensive Scriptural and soul searching have produced a monumental one-volume arsenal to defend the faith in a friendly but firmly factual way. This belongs in every church library and should be read by every church member to re-examine the documentary evidence for believing in Christ: there is no need to apologize for accepting the Bible at face value, since it has never been disproven and the preponderance of the evidence points to its truthfulness beyond a reasonable doubt. Great companion books would be Lee Strobel's Case For Christ; Case For Faith; C.S. Lewis Mere Christianity; Norman Geisler When Critics Ask; D.James Kennedy Solving Bible Mysteries. Josh's masterpiece has stood and will withstand the test of time as a classic component of the 20th/21st Centuries' apologetic arsenal. Meaty but more than manageable for the patient Bible student/sincere seeker.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. M. Brown on January 25, 2008
Format: Paperback
Too often, apologetics ranges into the "the Bible said it, that settles it." McDowell takes it a bit deeper: identifying common arguments that Christians will face from non-believers and giving counter-arguments backed up not only with Biblical testimony, but with testimony from scholars. Also to be noted and employed by the reader is McDowell's urging that the arguments shared be used in a pastoral spirit--good evangelism and good apologetics shouldn't be used as a club to beat someone over the head with, or used to shove belief down the throat of a non-believer. This book is a useful resource for those who are concerned with communicating their faith to the non-believers in their midst.
