The book was well packaged and came in the stated time period. The condition was exactly as stated.
There is some basic apologetics, but there is much more as well. It contains a lot of basic Christian doctrines and some great insights. The author shows that it matters what one thinks about spiritual issues as well as why it matters. He teaches a lot about the character and nature of God.
Some of the topics that he addresses are that people do not seek God without God seeking them first, that the primary purpose of the Gospel is not an invitation to man, but rather a statement about what God has done for us through Christ, that God will only be found by those who really seek Him, the importance of humility in the spiritual quest, that many who belong to the 'visible Church', are not necessarily members of the real church, and much more.
This is really a powerhouse that should be read by spiritual seekers, those who are already Christians, and pretty much everyone else. At the very least, from an educational standpoint, any reader can learn "why 2.3 billion people call themselves 'Christians'" as Rick Warren states in the foreward.
As a Bible teacher for many years, I find that re visiting this book and thinking about the basics over and over again, helps me consider the depth of Jesus sacrifice and how important it is to clearly communicate these truths to others.
This book is not only for those who know very little about Christianity, it is for the mature believer who is seeking a deeper and more intimate relationship with Jesus.
I recommend this book to non-believers who are searching for life's true meaning, believers who want to know exactly what we as Christians believe about our Father and His Son, and all mature believers who need a refresher in the fundamentals of the faith.
The book provides strong arguments for Christ and the resurrection and historic Christianity. It also makes clear what the implications of following Christ are.
The book was written for seekers and new Christians--but may also benefit older Christians who want a systematic exposition of the arguements for Christianity.
