There are 100 short lessons that run the gamut of Christian apologetics. It starts off with foundational discussions on areas as basic as the following: Ideas Have Consequences, Is Truth Knowable, and Thinking vs. Feeling.
It progresses into some more specific areas such as worldviews, the trustworthiness of the Bible, God, Jesus, the Ressurection, science, and miracles.
There are also sections on both historic religions and new religions.
Each of these areas is superb. They are well done summaries of many important areas. I read each one through and then went back through them later with a highlighter. There is plenty of information packed into each segment. It is focused into key points.
This is really a great tool that should be read by every Christian. It is not in depth apologetics like some other texts, but is invaluable as a quick reference.
I, myself, would have put the section on Resurrection right after the first section on Thinking, as the idea is to equip the layperson with the tools for dialogue with unbelievers.
In evaluating the sections on The Bible and Miracles, I took the role of "Devil's Advocate" and I found them lacking with regards to hypothetical discourse with skeptics. Let's face facts - there *are* some holes in the fabric of the Old Testament. That is not to say that the Bible is not *inspired* by God, but that even the author must admit that it is impossible to perfectly convey the whole of the God's infinite Wisdom and God's infinite Word in the finite, imperfect languages of men. As I tell others, "Inspired by the Holy Spirit does not mean dictated by the Holy Spirit."
I do recommend this book for the person interested in Apologetics, especially the beginner.
I like the set-up of the book.
It offers a quick read on a number of subjects, and then leads you to further read the Bible to understand it better

A great way to equip yourself for questions from unbelievers. Most people are not aware how history backs up everything in the Bible. No other religion has this kind of proof.Published on December 19, 2012 by Amazon Customer
