Format: Hardcover
This book is a great read, and I would go as far as to say that it is crucially important for any thinker in today's culture.

Up until reading this book, my favorite apologetics book was Tim Keller's THE REASON FOR GOD. God's Not Dead is comparable to Keller's work in the filtering of complex truth into simple, yet profound ideas. Beyond that, the distinct quality of Broocks' book is his ability to make cutting, yet respectful statements against the particular lies being propagated by postmodern culture.

Furthermore, Broocks includes reference to an extensive bibliography of different opinions on all sides of these issues, and he has properly selected only the key issues of our day.

Simply put, this is a fun, important, humorous, witty, and thoughtful read.

Rice Brooks has written an extremely useful book for believers, and for non-believers who want to know more about God. In nine chapters, Brooks addresses the most critical debating points about God's existence: naturalistic vs. theistic worldviews; faith vs; reason: the reality of the existence of good and evil; instantaneous creation of the universe; Darwinian evolution vs. an intelligent creator; the purpose of life; the Resurrection; scripture as history, not fiction; and the Grace effect.

Each chapter tackles one of these nine issues. Rice's points are buttressed by numerous cites to other authors. I also found it an excellent device to include arguments for Dawkins, a well known atheist, and the answers formulated by committed Christians to his points. The chapters on the Resurrection and the historical accuracy of the scripture are particularly important. I won't go into all the arguments, but those two chapters are well worth reading for anyone. Some of the other chapters deal with philosophical arguments, if you're not familiar with the philosophers, it may take a little longer, and perhaps some additional study, to become easily conversant with the arguments.

One of my favorite parts of the book was a testament by Dr. Augusto Cury. Dr. Cury is a well known psychiatrist and author. As a committed atheist, he decided to study the man, Jesus Christ. What he discovered brought him to a sincere faith in Christianity. He believed that Christ didn't fit the characteristics of someone who would want to be the leader of a revolution, no neurotic need for control and power over others. Jesus' responses to the dreadful events as his life approached the cross were unbelievably calm and forgiving. Jesus was a very unique man to exhibit the characteristics he did.

First things first, I'm an Atheist. Secondly, the rest of my family are Christians. Thirdly, and perhaps consequently to the first two, I read A LOT of Christian apologetics. I'm still an Atheist, so it goes without saying that I haven't found the 'evidence' convincing. Nonetheless, there are many excellent, interesting, clever, and thorough analyses of, the ideas concerning and existence of, God. This is not one of them. There's also a lot of contemptuous drivel on the market that make serious Christians and Atheists alike facepalm in despair. Gladly, neither does this book fall into that category. This book presents nothing new. Like, at all. But I don't think it purports to. It takes arguments that apologists have spent tens of thousands of pages explaining, usurps them, and simplifies them to the point that even the more philosophically savvy among Christians could point out the holes. Basically, It's a rough summary of some of the more successful arguments. However, it does get down the gist quite well, and a clever reader can make a lot of the necessary corrections herself. However:

This is a book for the layperson. It gets 3 stars because for someone interested in getting into Apologetics, it serves as a useful primer, and the works cited serve pretty well as a "what to read next" list for interested readers. The unfortunate truth, however, is that this book gets 1 (maybe two on a generous day) stars for the function in which it will probably be used the most.

My impression, based on experience, is that with most people, Christian and non-Christian alike, when it comes to arguing Christianity, anything that has the barest semblance of a reasonable argument will do.

First of all, I will disclose up front that I am an atheist. That tiny little label doesn't define who I am as a person, no matter how hard some evangelists want to insist that it does. Although I left the Christian faith many years ago, I am still quite fascinated with the historical, psychological, and philosophical aspects of many religions, I find plenty to admire in some of their ethical teachings, and I enjoy respectful and engaging discussions with those of faith. I do not think most believers are irrational, angry, or careless in their beliefs. I have read and continue to read books by a number of intelligent and thoughtful theists, from John Spong to Richard Bauckham to Alvin Plantinga. For various reasons, I disagree with the traditional ontological conclusion drawn by many theists, that a personal, supreme creator exists. That is about the extent of my atheism; I don't think science explains everything, I don't think all religions are harmful. From my conversations with fellow non-theists, I know I'm far from alone in holding this position.

I decided to pick up this book after seeing the film of the same name starring Kevin Sorbo and Shane Harper. Frankly, I was disgusted at the film's childish portrayal of both atheists and Christians that essentially took the form of a Jack Chick tract. Despite having the premise of debating the 'case for god', the movie was also woefully lacking in actual arguments and evidence. Having seen reverend Broocks' name in the credits as apologetics researcher, I looked him up and ordered this book. I half-expected it to be as bad as the film, and half-expected it to be a pleasant surprise.

Straight from the introduction, we see the type of book this is going to be.
