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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

If you are a skeptic or an atheist let me challenge you to read this book. If you are confident then you shouldn't be afraid of the questions posed by the author.Published 27 days ago by David L. Humphries
I'm a logical guy. I look for evidence, reason and analysis. So, I held onto the notion that evidence, reason and analysis don't always square up with faith. Read morePublished 1 month ago by R-Dub
