Book Description

Evidence For Gods Existence and Identity

Newly edited version 3-9-12. There are many contradictory beliefs about God that claim to be the truth. But since truth never contradicts itself, who really has the truth? Utilizing objective evidence like a detective does in an investigation, the facts point to the one belief that can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. One truth that applies to everyone if they believe it or not. Follow the evidence and see for yourself.

Setting feelings and what others believe aside for a moment learn why objective evidence is the best way to find truth in any investigation, including the truth about God. See for yourself exactly why Christianity is the most reasonable belief available based on the facts and why it applies to everyone, everywhere even if they do not believe it. Learn the two things we all encounter daily that the Bible states is absolute proof of God's existence and leave every person without excuse, even those who have never read the Bible. Learn why trying to be a good person is not good enough.

Weigh the objective evidence for yourself and make a reasonable decision about God and then pass the evidence on to others so they can discover the truth. Everyone deserves the opportunity to examine the evidence for themselves.

Perfect for the seeker and the believer who want to eliminate doubts and have a reasonable assurance that their faith is actually placed in the truth.If you are a believer you have an obligation to share the truth. Let this book show your friends and family the sound foundation your belief rests upon.

It's not about religion, it's about truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Introduction to Apologetics--re-edited February 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
Update: As noted in a comment to this review, the kindle edition has been re-edited, and I am changing my review to reflect this. Good job, nice arguments. Thanks for making it available to us.

This book is a nice summary of Christian apologetic arguments, but . . .

I didn't realize how distracting it is to read a poorly edited book. There are many incomplete and run on sentences. Punctuation is frequently improper. Some words are misused--for example, conscience v. conscious. Others are misspelled--Regan rather than Reagan. And then there were the 1017 silver dollars that if scattered would cover Texas two feet deep.

There are general editing issues as well. For example, some of the headings are confusing or not to the point. One heading was "Is the New Testament Accurate?" while the next was "Is the New Testament True?" The first section was about the accuracy of the manuscript evidence, while the second was about the historical accuracy.

Some of the arguments also need to be strengthened or restructured. Sorry I didn't note these so can't be specific.

Like the previous reviewer, I commend the author on his research and work. But poor writing also brings into question the quality of the scholarship. The book has promise. Like the previous reviewer, I would encourage a good editing job and a second edition. We need these kinds of books.

Understand up front that I am a non-believer, but that I read this book in full and will attempt to review the book on the merits of content and writing style rather than any agenda. I choose the book because I am interested in both apologetics and counter-apologetics and because it was free.

In the following I'll give you an idea of what to expect. If this were a book of fiction, I would post a "spoiler" warning here.

The book appears to be heavily influenced by I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist by Geisler and Turek, by Jim Marshall's website, by William Lane Craig, and to a smaller degree by Michael Behe's thoughts on intelligent design. Along the way he mentions other popular voices in the apologetics community, such as Ray Comfort, Francis Collins, and Christian rapper LeCrae. The reader will be given a short tour through the kalam cosmological argument, the ontological argument, moral arguments for god, and general criticism of evolution or naturalistic "bias" in science. This is the first third or so of the book, which is also the most interesting portion of the book to me by far. The author does about as good of a job as possible restating these arguments. However, the arguments themselves have amble counter arguments and by their nature engage in arguments from ignorance or special pleading. Moreover, even if one accepts a cosmological argument for god, it is quite a leap to conclude that this god must be ominipotent or personal in nature.

And that's where the author heads next with moral arguments for god, arguing that the moral code is written in our conscience. What follows is a rather lengthy defense of Christian Biblical historicity and accuracy.

First, I'd like to qualify my review: I am a Believer, and I consider myself one who speaks with God and Jesus regularly in prayer, I serve in a church, and I read and know my Bible. So I am NOT rating this book poorly based on my feelings of "Christianity", instead of it's content.

I rated it poorly because of its mechanics and purpose.

I will tell you positives, enough to gain 2 stars:

1. It's well put-together.
2. The Author has done a lot of research. A lot.
3. The Author's literary voice comes out strongly, and it's practiced, polished, and rational.
4. The Author uses many sources to refer to, and uses Logic.

The Problems come from the book's Premise:

He likens the idea of "God" to the idea of "Gravity": How can a person choose to "believe" in God, like they don't choose to "believe" in Gravity?

Well, Gravity is experienced in the womb. Gravity is quantifiable, measurable, able to be tested, and explained. One can use logic to denote its existence and predict its influence.

God is not so easily quantified, measurable, tested, or explained. Kind of like trying to nail down Jell-O: energy and resources are wasted on something that will end up falling apart. He is neither provable, nor can you predict God. Put God in a box, and He will surprise you by still being outside of it, as well as part of the box.

God is, for the bulk of Humanity, an Emotional force. He has Spiritual impact. (If this were not true, there would not be crying in church or joy at baptisms. Likewise, atheists would not get angry with Believers when they talk about God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally well done. September 3, 2013
By Jerry
Verified Purchase
Short, concise, to the point, excellent compilation of arguments from top apologists and folks standing up for the Christian faith. SOMETIMES a little too sure, as Christians can be--if that was softened a bit it would be an even better tool for standing up for the faith, but still very well done. Looking forward to reading his other book which I recently purchased.
