My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an excellent primer on getting started in apologetics and dealing with some of the most common questions regarding Christianity. Questions such as ‘is there a God?’, ‘is the Bible authentic and true?’, science and faith, religious pluralism (don’t all religions lead to God?), ‘the question of evil and suffering’, and ‘is Jesus for real?’. Answers and examples were given for dealing with each of these issues in a loving and respectful way. The importance of apologetics in our postmodern world is quite clear and this book offers a way to get one’s feet wet in defending the faith.
“Christianity is the only religion in the world that has a God who will suffer for you and then enter into the midst of your pain and sit beside you. And weep.”
“…if what Jesus said about himself in the Bible is true, then his is the most important message mankind could ever hear.”
Recommended for those who see the need for apologetics but aren’t really sure where to start or how to defend these questions.

*I received this book free from the publisher Cruciform Press in exchange for my review.
