Overall, this is a good thought-provoking book for apologetics introduction.
David C. Leaumont
The book proves theism, but one remains doubtful about it, even if one would love to believe that (as is my case).
Nick
Book was received within the specified time and its condition was as advertised.

This book is very suited as an introduction to apologetics, and for group study. Each chapter is preceeded by some conversations (called "vignettes") the author had with different persons on the subject of the chapter. At the end of the chapter, one finds some answers/reflexions about the vignettes of the chapter, as well as some questions to master the content of the chapter and for further reflexions, and also a short bibliography for further exploration.
I find most of the chapters very good, except the presentation of the cosmological and teleological arguments.

A much more detailed (and somewhat less formally presented) introduction to Apologetics can be found in "When skeptics ask" by Norman Geisler. For a more philosophical introduction, see "Reason and Faith" by Ronald Nash. For those who want more, I can recommend all the books of Geisler, James Moreland, William Craig, Douglas Geivett, Gary Habermas.

Format: Paperback
This is a great beginning apologetics work! Through the use of solid logic skills, basic facts and modern day vignettes, Courduan offers practical and helpful arguments for the Christian faith. Unlike many apologetics book, NO DOUBT ABOUT It is written in a very understandable fashion. Corduan does not talk over the head of his readers but still is true to the academic difficulty of answering a skeptics questions. Written at a level that even late high school aged students can understand, this book is a great gift for students at graduation. In a remarkable way, Corduan blends academia with interesting practicality to produce a wonderful work of apologetics.

One of the best parts about Corduan's book, is that he starts out each chapter with commonly stated arguments against the topic he is about to discuss. He does this in "vignettes" (read - experiences) he has had meeting both believers and non-believers in his life and travels. The beginning vignettes set the stage for the rest of the chapter with cliff-hanger questions pertaining to the material about to be discussed. This helps one see how the presented material fits in to both the problem of apologetics while remaining utterly practical. He finishes each chapter by stating how he thinks one should best answer the question arising in the vignettes. This approach both aids in practical application and stimulates thought regarding more scholarly treatments of the topics.

As others have stated here, this is a good introductory text. Corduan does not go into great detail or explanation on foundational ideologies of apologetics such as defining truth and differeing philosophies such as relativism. He does treat them well enough for an introduction, though.

Personally, I find concrete evidences most convincing. I was expecting to find in chapters dealing directly with apologetics topics like the existence of God, or miracles, that there would be concrete evidences, such as the fine-tuned nature of the world, or the utter complexity of the world pointing to a Creator. After all, to me, 'No Doubt' normally results from concrete evidence. Instead, Corduan uses the Cosmological Argument, which to me, is foreign since I am not a philosopher (I was previously very familiar with the argument, but logic-based philosophical arguments do less for me than concrete evidence).

Format: Paperback
I cannot remember how I got to this book - probably a recommendation - but its title intrigued me with its boldness. To be sure, the book is just as bold in its claims, but what's more surprising is that it does pack its philosophical punches.

This volume is primarily intended for students, as the author is a teacher and this is most likely his textbook, but that shouldn't deter you from it. I don't think you need any prior knowledge of philosophy on the academic level to read this book and enjoy it. I believe it's accessible for anyone.

So what does the book do? Well, it proves atheism, agnosticism, pantheism, and others, wrong. It also proves theism is correct, God exists, and Christianity is the one true religion. Impressed? Dubious? Who wouldn't be. I have to say that in spite of all the excellent arguments of the book, I don't feel 100% convinced, but it certainly gave me excellent food for thoughts and new arguments to think about.

Corduan deals with a range of disciplines, from history to theology, philosophy, and logic, which I really appreciated. This isn't a religious book in the sense that it doesn't deal solely with "religion"; it's philosophy about God.

The writing is excellent and compelling. Reading *No Doubt* feels like attending a great class. And while it hasn't revealed the existence of God to me, it came as close as it could and made me explore ideas and arguments I am now glad to know.
