This book is fantastic! I’m a Bible teacher, and even I fear being asked some of these questions. Yet Mark has provided solid answers to help us respond to the real questions people are asking. (Sean McDowell, coauthor of More Than a Carpenter)
From the Back Cover
“How could a good God allow so much suffering?
“Why should I believe heaven and hell exist?”
“Why do you condemn homosexuals?”
“Why trust the Bible? It’s full of myths.”
“Why are Christians so judgmental?”
“Sure, Jesus was a good man. Why make him into the Son of God, too?”
“Didn’t evolution put God out of a job?”
“Why are Christians so obsessed with abortion?”
“What makes you so sure God even exists?”
“Christians are hypocrites―so why should I listen to you?”
Are there questions you dread being asked?
Maybe you dread asking them even of yourself. They’re the ones on subjects such as hell, homosexuality, or suffering. Through a national poll conducted by The Barna Group, Mark Mittelberg uncovered the questions Christians most fear being asked. Complete with discussion questions, Mark’s book will help you meet today’s hot-button issues head on.

The author, Mark Mittelberg, began by having the Barna Group survey 1000 Christians asking what questions regarding their faith made them the most uncomfortable. He then narrowed these down to the top ten and compiled answers for each. Some of the topics here include such things as: The Existence of God, 'Didn't Evolution Put God Out of a Job?', the reliability of the Bible, the deity of Jesus, the problem of evil and suffering, and several more. The topics covered are all highly relevant areas for believers in conversations with others.
Mr. Mittelberg approaches his topics in a very loving manner. He clearly is more concerned about the fate of others than simply winning an argument, although he is very effective in presenting evidences as well. He puts a lot of emphasis on clarifying the position of the other person, thus improving communication.
One chapter that is particularly good is the one on evolution. He does a great job of highlighting some of the major weaknesses of that theory.
In the area of evil and suffering, he really goes beyond intellectual responses and encourages readers to avoid platitudes (He/she is in a better place now, etc). He makes the case that oftentimes those who are have objections about God related to suffering are currently dealing with a situation themselves.
One of the areas that Mittelberg deals very effectively with is the contention that so many Christians are hypocrites. He demonstrates how that can be an issue of common ground with the person. He said, 'Jesus dealt with this issue often - and no one spoke more strongly about it than he did.'
Overall, this is a very good book that should be read by all Christians as well as anyone honestly evaluating the claims of Christ.
An all-around good read, with the potential to broaden both secular and Christian minds alike, while providing ample fodder for discussion on a range of topics.
