The book ends with three chapters on how Christians think about those who have never heard of Jesus. (Not just those who have never been reached by missionaries, but mental cases or very young childhood before learning to speak.) Unfortunately, there is no consensus on that issue, but there are answers that are more likely than others.
Dr. Copan systematically dismantles the positions of non-believers by presenting a typical argument and then analytically destroying its premise. Dr. Copan takes the reader through refutations of moral relativism, religious pluralism, and finally, arguments against Christianity itself. He tells the reader what to expect in the introduction when he writes: "As True for You, But Not for Me unfolds, you will notice one final underlying message - that many of the relativistic or pluralistic slogans we hear are, in fact, absolute or exclusive. After all, a relativist believes that absolutists are wrong. The religious pluralist believes that the exclusivist views of Christians are wrong. Their belief systems are no more `tolerant' or `broadminded' than the beliefs of the Christian who claims to possess the ultimate truth about God and the meaning of life."
This is a great book for those who want to improve their Christian apologetics. It not only gives understanding to the Christian about what they're dealing with, but gives effective counter arguments to combat those who have not thought through their position completely.
"Relativism claims to speak universal truth about at least one thing - namely, that someone's "truth" can be someone else's falsehood - and thus contradicts itself by claiming nothing is true or false." (Page 27)
Top reviews from other countries
It is easy to read with short chapters and a brief summary of the main points at the end of each chapter which make it a great resource to refer back to when needed. There are also suggestions for further reading and detailed notes at the end of the book, it also looks good and would be a great resource especially for youth groups where it can be enlightening to demonstrate the bankruptcy of relativism.
In short, buy it, give to a friend and ignore the one star reviews from people who appear not to have actually read the book.
