Good but too short
This book offers some good responses for questions that often arise, but only in an introductory fashion. It's a great book to give to the kind of person who wants answers but isn't willing to dig too deeply to find them (and there are a lot of those around). There is a wealth of resource material in the endnotes for anyone wanting to explore the topics deeper.
3/4 Great, 1/4 'what the,,,,,,,,???'
This is overall an excellent book. 3/4 of the book is an excellent attempt at christian apologetics. With a fine treatment of basic issues that the skeptic askes of the christian worldview. But the last section on the issue of black islam, is a confusing mixture of good and bad information. The good is about the history and appeal of the nation of islam. The bad is the authors moving from explaining about islam and the moving to the usual critism of the white church of america. The cause of the rise of Black Islam in the prision systems of america and the rise of Islam in America, is far my complex than sunday morning being the most seregrated hour of the week.
Buy the book for the first 150 pages and then put it on the shelf
Does the job
This is a good entry-level book on Christian apologetics. It is suitable for anyone interested to find short answers to a range of common questions raised against the evangelical Christian faith. The book is written in a crisp, easy-to-read style that even a new reader will find easy to digest.
A minor quibble is that the question-and-answer format tends to either leave gaps or create overlaps in the material provided. Also, those interested in deeper and more thorough-going discussions of the questioned handled in the book (see the synopsis above) might find the need to look elsewhere.
