"A great Apologetics book. A quote that influences me: "And here we have an example of what faith is: . . . it is a rational step which follows the evidence and logic as far as reason is able, then takes another step beyond reason, always and only in the direction that evidence and reason have pointed." p.21"
"Here is a quote that constantly encourages me: ". . . God will hide from you much of the fruit he causes in your ministry. You will see enough to be assured of his blessing, but not so much as to think you could live without it." p. 19"
"Points out that Jesus is Lord, whether we like it or not, and Christians need to show this. His point on the parable of the wheat and tares that the field is not the world but the church influenced me. The theme is actually a statement of how I already thought, though MacArthur is more Calvinistic than I am."
"While this book did influence me as far as the dangers of the new age movement infiltrating the church, what struck me more is that he points out where he agrees with another author 99% of the time, but noting the 1% as well, in a spirit of Christian love."
"This is definitely an eye-opener. It shows the importance of a Christian world-view, and shows battlegrounds such as evangelical traditions, gender roles, and evolution carried to its logical conclusion."
"There are things I disagree with the author on. However, his book helps me control my frustration in not seeing fruit in a gift I'm not gifted in (evangelism) and instead focus where I am gifted (knowledge, teaching, encouragement)."
