Format: Paperback
"Yes or No?" is like a streamlined version of Kreeft's popular book "Between Heaven and Hell". The conversation between Sal and Chris guides the reader to the truth of the claims made by Christ and orthodox Christians.

Though not for everyone, the short chapters of dialogue hold a potential reader's attention perhaps better than a straight narrative. Reading the comments of some reviewers, one can't help but think they're arguing against Christianity rather than Kreeft.

Find out for yourself. For a sample chapter online, simply perform a Google search of the words "Kreeft" and "The Bible: Myth or History?"

The book makes an excellent gift for a graduating high school senior or entering college freshman.

Format: Paperback
I truly enjoyed this book and think that it is a good Q&A text for someone starting out in the Christian faith. While there does seem to be a great deal hostility to this book from the same area in Massachusetts (I have to wonder if it's the same person writing multiple bad reviews?), I would have to strongly disagree with their review. Does this book answer every question completely and in depth? No, nor does it claim to be a comprehensive guide to Christian apologetics. Kreeft doesn't try to 'prove' Christianity so much as he tries to give us good and solid reasons for the faith (1 Peter 3:15). I've known a few young Christians - and old too - who have found the book invaluable. Give the book a shot, I think you'll like it. On the other hand, if your an old pro and you want hard hitting Christian Apologetics, try Kreeft's other book - Handbook of Christian Apologetics: Hundreds of Answers to Crucial Questions. God Bless and good reading!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Tim Drake VINE VOICE on October 31, 2001
Format: Paperback
Let me first say that this book isn't for everyone. Kreeft, who is a master at creating Socratic-like dialogue and employing logic to bring about a point, has created a series of dialogues between Sal the Seeker and Chris the Christian.
The dialogue is not meant to simulate real-life conversation, but employs wit, irony, and logic to bring about the points that Kreeft wants to make - namely proving that God exists, explaining the problem of evil, Heaven, Hell and the other "big" questions.
For those that do not care to read dialogue-centered books this will not be for them.
For those seeking answers to such question, however, they will find that Kreeft does a masterful job of raising the tough questions and leading one to the true answers. This is a wonderful book for a beginning logic, philosophy, or theology student.

Format: Paperback
I have read this book atleast three times now, and gotten something new out of it each time, despite being raised Christian and actively practising the faith. I used it with my tenth grade Sunday school class this past year and I thought it was great.

Some readers may find this book difficult, challenging, or possibly condescending. I think that may be because we are largely unused to open, honest dialogue, being more familiar with both invective and polite skirting of issues than open talk. Chris can seem a bit snottish when read some ways, but perhaps that is just because it is difficult to know tone of voice from a text. I imagine Chris being enthusiastic, not snotty, and I think Sal's responses reflect that-- after all, who wouldn't lose it with someone if he thought he was constantly being patronised.

This book is challenging on a spiritual level, both to Christians and non-Christians. It is easy for those of us who are Christians to think we have the only truth, or that questioning God is somehow unfaithful. Kreeft aptly demonstrates that true faith always questions, that unquestioning faith is often very immature faith. We live in a complex world and we face complex problems, and experience tough times that would lead anyone to ask the big questions- why do bad things happen? how can we be certain of God's existence? etc. These challenge us, and can lead us to lose faith or to go deeper, but almost as bad as losing faith is not growing in it. Kreeft points out that faith isn't stagnant.

This is also a challenge to non-Christians, to be open to the answers to the tough questions that they ask, even if the answers are frightening.

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was excellent. Many of the other critics in this forum have blasted it for the supposed ignorance of Sal the "seeker" and the sometimes trite expressions and literary form. I hope they did not expect literature. It is meant, if anything, to be as directly close to human dialogue as possible. This serves the purpose of identifying directly with the reader. If readers have a problem with the simplicity of "sal", they must not understand that he is a person who is written to be as ignorant towards religion as possible. This is so he asks every single question a non believer would tend to ask. Chris is meant to be highly learned because he has to logically answer any question a non believer would ask. Those extremes are necessary for any book that seeks to instruct. This book, if approached open minded, will reveal some very interesting questions people could have about the Christian faith as well as logical answers. The reader also needs to understand there are some issues in Christianity still debated to this day, and that is the reason for whatever vagueness one might find. I personally found very little. I highly reccomend it to anyone.
