The book is not solely for non-Catholics, though; his chapter "Life in the Kingdom" is an excellent walk through the scriptural foundation of the seven sacraments that Catholics should know as well.
What might be a complaint about this book is, from one perspective, a great strength: it is brief. As someone the agrees with Curtis' answers, I made it through the book in one sitting, impressed by his simple list-objections-and-scratch-them-off approach. Where a thicker book might go unread, Made for More can be read easily.
Each point (for example, why we reject the argument that Jesus never died on the cross) is answered accurately but briefly. If a particular answer isn't sufficiently convincing, that is only a reason to seek additional resources. Other offerings from Ascension Press (and other excellent Catholic presses, like Ignatius) would dig deeper into any particular topic.
In Made for More, Curtis draws on the works of both Protestants and Catholics to present a basic apologetic work that should be accessible to a very broad audience. He helps his readers deal with the most fundamental spiritual questions as to the existence of Jesus and the purpose of our lives.
He begins with Jesus: "Who do you say that I am?" Using the same logic as great writers such as C.S. Lewis, he challenges all notions that Jesus could possibly be anything other than what He claims to be. He either has to be God or He has to be a liar, a lunatic, or just another moral teacher like the Buddha. Curtis shows why the latter three are impossible, leaving us with the logical conclusion: that He is God.
Curtis also covers some of the historical evidence in a fashion similar to the well-known Protestant author Josh McDowell in The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict. He covers the historicity of the resurrection and the validity of the Bible and its transmission, two key issues that underpin our confidence in the teaching handed down by the church.Read more ›
