Each essay includes a transcription of Eric Metaxas' lighthearted introduction, the talk at the Socrates in the City forum, and a transcription of the Q&A session after each talk, all of which took place at Socrates in the City forums between 2003 and 2010. My only regret was that the actual Q&As weren't longer. Among the delights in the book were the speakers' reactions to Eric Metaxas' unorthodox introductions.
It would be unreasonable to expect that questions like belief in God in an age of science, making sense out of suffering, seeking purpose, meaning and truth in your life, why Christianity makes sense, the twilight of atheism, the case for civility, the language of God, etc. can be solved in 25 to 40 pages each, but John Polkinghorne, Peter Kreeft, Charles Colson, N. T. Wright, Alister McGrath, Os Guiness, Francis Collins, etc. take good shots at them, and the Q&A sessions are mostly helpful.
I highly recommend this very readable and enjoyable book to anyone interested in the topics covered.
This book is a series of lectures given in New York to a sophicated audience. The author had the worlds best, smartests Christians give lectures, followed by a Q&A period.
All the lectures deal with the big topics of life God, morality, how do we Know , Church state separation etc.
Each section gives the speakers main arguements.
