About the Author

Rice Broocks is the cofounder of the Every Nation family of churches, with more than one thousand churches in more than sixty nations. The senior minister of Bethel World Outreach Church, Nashville, Tennessee, Rice is also the author of several books, including The Purple Book and Every Nation in Our Generation. A graduate of Mississippi State University, Rice has a master’s degree from Reformed Theological Seminary and a doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary.


More About the Author

Soon after Rice Broocks became a Christian as a third year university student, he discussed his faith with his brother Ben, an atheist, who was a third year law student. Though Rice was young in his faith, his simple answers to his brother's questions led to Ben's acceptance of Christ, and he baptized Ben later that day.

"Since that day I've devoted my life to reaching out to an unbelieving, skeptical world with the message that God is indeed real and has revealed Himself in nature, as well as in history,'" said Broocks.

In his new book, God's Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty (Thomas Nelson, March 2013), Broocks offers a clear, understandable overview of the evidence for God as well as the credibility of the Christian faith, while responding directly to many skeptical claims.

Broocks is the co-founder of the Every Nation family of churches, which currently includes more than 1,000 churches in more than 60 countries. Present on hundreds of college campuses, Broocks has spent the last 30 years with Every Nation focusing on equipping college students around the world to defend their faith.

Broocks also serves as the senior minister of Bethel World Outreach Church in Nashville, Tenn., where he provides oversight for this multi-ethnic, multisite church, currently meeting in locations in Middle Tennessee, Texas, and Arizona.
He is the author of several books, including his upcoming release, God's Not Dead, Every Nation In Our Generation and the Purple Book (Biblical Foundations).

Broocks holds a Bachelor of Business Administration from Mississippi State University, a master's degree from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Miss., as well as a doctorate in missiology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif.

Broocks lives in Nashville, TN. with his wife, Jody, and their five children.

I recommend every high school and college student read this.

After reading, I believe this book will help those that have "honest questions" and are willing to look at the evidence.

This book is a great read, and I would go as far as to say that it is crucially important for any thinker in today's culture.

Up until reading this book, my favorite apologetics book was Tim Keller's THE REASON FOR GOD. God's Not Dead is comparable to Keller's work in the filtering of complex truth into simple, yet profound ideas. Beyond that, the distinct quality of Broocks' book is his ability to make cutting, yet respectful statements against the particular lies being propagated by postmodern culture.

Furthermore, Broocks includes reference to an extensive bibliography of different opinions on all sides of these issues, and he has properly selected only the key issues of our day.

Simply put, this is a fun, important, humorous, witty, and thoughtful read.

A compelling argument for Christianity that equips believers like never before.
The goal of God's Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty is straightforward: to help readers develop "a faith that is real and credible--and strong enough to help others find faith in God." To that end, Rice Broocks outlines a roadmap that guides seekers to acknowledge the most basic truths of Christianity:

*There is overwhelming and exciting evidence for God's existence
*The God who exists is indeed the God of the Bible
*God has revealed his nature through his Son, Jesus Christ

Persuasive arguments crafted with tools borrowed from logic, science, and philosophy, as well as scripture, solidify the faith of the Christian reader and provide starting points for discussions with skeptics. With clear, easy-to-follow explanations of key concepts and controversies, God's Not Dead is apologetics for the twenty-first century, presented in layman's terms. Readers will be empowered not only to talk about their own faith with confidence but to lead others to a relationship with Jesus.
This book can make you think about what you believe in and the reasons behind it.
I would highly recommened this.
I recieved this book for review through Thomas Nelson.

Format: Hardcover
Rice Brooks has written an extremely useful book for believers, and for non-believers who want to know more about God. In nine chapters, Brooks addresses the most critical debating points about God's existence: naturalistic vs. theistic worldviews; faith vs; reason: the reality of the existence of good and evil; instantaneous creation of the universe; Darwinian evolution vs. an intelligent creator; the purpose of life; the Resurrection; scripture as history, not fiction; and the Grace effect.

Each chapter tackles one of these nine issues. Rice's points are buttressed by numerous cites to other authors. I also found it an excellent device to include arguments for Dawkins, a well known atheist, and the answers formulated by committed Christians to his points. The chapters on the Resurrection and the historical accuracy of the scripture are particularly important. I won't go into all the arguments, but those two chapters are well worth reading for anyone. Some of the other chapters deal with philosophical arguments, if you're not familiar with the philosophers, it may take a little longer, and perhaps some additional study, to become easily conversant with the arguments.

One of my favorite parts of the book was a testament by Dr. Augusto Cury. Dr. Cury is a well known psychiatrist and author. As a committed atheist, he decided to study the man, Jesus Christ. What he discovered brought him to a sincere faith in Christianity. He believed that Christ didn't fit the characteristics of someone who would want to be the leader of a revolution, no neurotic need for control and power over others. Jesus' responses to the dreadful events as his life approached the cross were unbelievably calm and forgiving. Jesus was a very unique man to exhibit the characteristics he did.

Having recently come out of my own personal "age of uncertainty" and having many questions yet remaining, I was very interested in the premise of this book. I never went so far as to consider myself an atheist, but the reality of Jesus Christ was severely under question in my mind and I was hoping that the author would address this topic, which he did.

Obviously, no one book is going to be able to come close to exhausting this subject matter, but the author has made a generally commendable effort to show evidence supporting the existence of a Creator God who is involved in the lives of His created beings and a Savior, Jesus Christ. I also found the book to be helpful as a jumping-off point for further study in volumes the author has cited.

I did disagree on a couple of points that I feel the need to mention. The author writes on page 136 of "an eternal dimension we possess that lasts beyond physical life" as an evidence for God. Although I am aware that this is a common belief (the eternal soul) in the Christian world, my reading of the Scriptures tells me that “the dead know not anything” (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and are asleep until the return of Christ. I am also wary of the megachurches which the author appears to consider are due to the working of the Holy Spirit. While I do believe the Spirit is at work in our world, one must always take a close look at what is happening in those megachurches (and indeed, any church) to determine whether or not the spirit present is of God in each case. I could not recommend the book without noting those two items, but I found much that was helpful as well, and hope to be able to use what I have learned in my conversations with unbelievers.

I reviewed this book for the booksneeze.com blogger book review program and received a complimentary copy of the book in return for my honest review.
