I came to Christ through a renewing of the mind, He reached in and changed me, (as I was studying the Bible originally for the curiosity, for the heck of it, to see what it says in there). But, as a thinker, I need intelligent support to satisfy a human need to make sense. I know that I know, but it's nice to have logic to what I know, too. You might not like every answer the book gives, but I suggest stepping back, and letting it sink in before totally rejecting it, and at least it got you to think about it- because it matters.
To a Non-Christian- there IS logic to Christianity, and intense depth and mystery in the Bible. You don't have to be a blind believer, but you do need to read, and THINK. That part is on YOU. This book can guide you, start you on your way. There is evidence. There is logic. There is reasoning.
This is for believers and non-believers. New-agers, Shamans, and Mormons.
Like Ravi says, Leading Thinkers to Christ and Christians to Think. You must. It matters.
My "Men's Bible Study" group is using this book as a study guide and it has resulted in some very, very good discussions. I highly recommend this book.
As far as the substance goes, I believe William Lane Craig's writings are the star of the show. Although I have a liberal arts background, his chapter on science really makes me want to read more from authors like Polkinghorne about the only-recently-uncomfortable relationship between science and theology. It is fascinating to read that much of academy in cosmology is pointing back towards intelligent design theory and eschewing much of the previous postulations by Hawking or Weinberg.
I have been a big fan of Ravi Zacharias for a long time, so I was anxious to read the writings of his mentor, Norm Geisler. I hate to admit it, but I was somewhat dissapointed. I found his writing to be repetitive, circuitous, and sometimes even tautological. There are about three chapters that Geisler wrote that could have easily condensed into one. I know that Geisler is a prolific writer in apologetics and considered one the genre's mainstays, so I still do look forward to reading something of his that is more single-minded. I suspect that my complaints are a result of the constrined format.
It also should be noted that Zacharias himself did not pen any chapter, and acted only in an editorial capacity. I believe this to be a real loss for this book because few can match the eloquence, persuasiveness, and compassion of Zacharias.
All of this is not to say that I did not enjoy this book or found it useful, but once one is versed with the basics of this book, it is unlikely to be a reference point for deeper arguments, but I repeatedly find myself shopping for books from the "Further Reading" and footnotes chapters.
