Format: Paperback
This book can a very useful tool for those Christians who are bombarded with skepticism both from within and from without. I view this only as an introductory work, with the arguments being necessarily superficial (for brevity's sake), but the footnotes and further reading list are probably the most valuable part of the book. Reading it will give you a chance to see if apologetics is an area that you would like to explore, and then it will show you what additional books to launch into for each of the different categories.

As far as the substance goes, I believe William Lane Craig's writings are the star of the show. Although I have a liberal arts background, his chapter on science really makes me want to read more from authors like Polkinghorne about the only-recently-uncomfortable relationship between science and theology. It is fascinating to read that much of academy in cosmology is pointing back towards intelligent design theory and eschewing much of the previous postulations by Hawking or Weinberg.

I have been a big fan of Ravi Zacharias for a long time, so I was anxious to read the writings of his mentor, Norm Geisler. I hate to admit it, but I was somewhat dissapointed. I found his writing to be repetitive, circuitous, and sometimes even tautological. There are about three chapters that Geisler wrote that could have easily condensed into one. I know that Geisler is a prolific writer in apologetics and considered one the genre's mainstays, so I still do look forward to reading something of his that is more single-minded. I suspect that my complaints are a result of the constrined format.

It also should be noted that Zacharias himself did not pen any chapter, and acted only in an editorial capacity.

Format: Paperback
This book offers answers to over 100 commonly-asked questions about Christianity in an easy-to-read format. The editors bring together the world's leading Christian apologists and present their knowledge on each subject. The book is organized by topics, with several questions and answers listed under each topic. Part One of the book covers the most fundamental questions about Christianity, including the deity of God, Jesus Christ, the validity of the Bible, evolution/creationism, evil, etc. Part Two delves into more complicated topics and examines the differences between Christianity and other world religions, such as Hinduism, Islam, Mormonism, Transcendental Meditation, Buddhism, etc. Each chapter also ends with discussion questions, which are quite thought-provoking and beneficial for small-group study.
This book is a good starting point for those who wish to understand more about the Christian faith. It's fairly basic, so the editors list several more books and Web sites at the end for deeper study. This is a good reference especially for people who are curious about the Christian faith or are new believers.

25 of 33 people found the following review helpful By Seth McBee on April 26, 2006
Format: Paperback
The answers in this book are way too condensed and simple. Doesn't thouroughly answer the questions that are brought forth and takes snippets from other books on these topics for its' answers, such as "When Skeptics Ask" and "Case for Christ."

If you are looking for answers to tough questions pick up "When Skeptics Ask" "Case for Christ" "Kingdom of the Cults" and "Evidence that Demands a Verdict"

This book leaves a lot to be desired and expected more being that Ravi was the General Editor of this book and also "Kingdom of the Cults"

Format: Paperback
This is a good introduction to apologetics, packed with useful info, written by many experts. However, it may be just a little too short and condensed. There are better books like this out there like Samples' "Without a Doubt: Answering the 20 Toughest Faith Questions" , Strobel's "The Case for Faith" and "The Case for a Creator," etc.

I do take issue with Rhodes discussion on evil & pain. In an otherwise great discussion, he equates all of pain & death with evil, being evil or being nonexistent before evil entered the world. This is problematic in a number of ways (I quote the following from Dean's book "Is the Truth Out There?"):

Even plants "suffer" and experience "death,"...Did these plants suddenly appear after Adam's sin? According to the fossil record they did not. Science has also shown us that animal death is necessary for stable ecosystems. "No death before Adam" also violates the laws of physics. There is no life, or no work, without decay and death. In any given moment, cells are dying and food is decaying in our bodies so life may continue. Is this death and decay evil? If death was inherently evil, what of God who killed animals to clothe Adam and Eve and the deaths he caused throughout the Bible (in punishing people)? If death is inherently evil, then so is God.

Would not a caring creator prepare the world in the best possible way for man, the crown of creation? There are billions of tons of oil, coal, limestone, marble, topsoil and kerogen on Earth. All are valuable, and some necessary, for the maintaining and improvement of human life and all were created by decaying life. Would not the creator - knowing that man would sin by virtue of the fact the creator is outside of time and could see man's future - prepare the world accordingly?
