Format: Paperback
This book is packed with information organized in simple to comprehend chunks.

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.

If you ever had a problem defending your faith in Christ or never fully had the evidence to understand the Truth, this book will give you extra power of understanding and to erase any and all of your doubts about the true Faith above all others. This book should be carried along with you and your Holy Bible. I love the resource efforts it took to create such a masterful piece of work. Go Dr. Cornish! May God continue to Bless you in your endeavors to win back the hearts and souls for God Almighty and His Son!

Overall, I like this book. There are a number minor points that I disagree with, but I chalk that up to the author's Baptist background, while I have a more mainstream Christian upbringing - Roman Catholic/Episcopal/Lutheran/Orthodox.

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."

Great overview of apologetic thoughts. It will not prepare you to debate Dawkins or Hawking and others of their caliber, but it will give you a foundation in Biblical world views that you will want to expand on through other books. If you think you will become another Ravi Zacharis, Lee Strobel or Norman Geisler, your wrong.

I do recommend this book for the person interested in Apologetics, especially the beginner.

Good book.
Very useful
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
