To Everyone an Answer is intentionally an accessible and readable book. Its thorough name, subject, and Scripture indexes are helpful study aids. Clergy and students will likely benefit most from this book. Doubtless, informed laity, and of course, curious non-Christians will find it informative as well. (Tony Richie, The Pneuma Review, Spring 2009)
"Written specifically for students, it intends to supply them with the background and materials to defend their faith in a culturally and religiously plural world . . . Thorough overview of all the most important issues." (Missiology, January 2006)
"The practical nature of these essays makes the book useful to the preacher as well as to the academic apologist . . . seminary students ought to purchase [it]" (Faith & Mission, Volume 22, Issue 3)

Thus, this collection of apologetics essays by friends and colleagues.
Those I've read so far will certainly cause me over time to read all of these. Especially blessed with Carl Mosser's and Paul Owen's on "Mormonism" and especially the insights on their problems with the Trinity, as well as Abdul Saleeb (who co-authored volume on Islam with Geisler) on Islam. Both provide additional worldview and theological insights which would aid any of us in our outreach to these false theologies.
Excellent defense of apologetics written by Craig Hazen. This well done essay will help any who think apologetics has no right or task in our outreach.
Impressive grouping of Christian apologists such as: Dembski, Craig, Ben Witherinton III, Zacharias. Worth the invest to read.
I especially enjoyed the chapter, Facing the Challenge of Postmodernism where Douglas Groothuis aptly pointed out many of the internal inconsistencies of much postmodern thought. I thought that chapter on Darwin, Design, and Public Schools didn't fit in well with the book because the goal shifted from providing evidence for true claims about reality to parsing court decisions related to teaching intelligent design in public schools.
The book is consistant with Dr. Geisler's evidentialist apologetic method and serves as a helpful introduction to the key arguments for the existence of God and the response to the challenges to the Christian faith.
