I first heard of Chris Sinkinson on the Unbelievable Radio show a while back where he demonstrated that if he ever wrote a book it would be well worth a place in my library. Confident Christianity didn't disappoint, Chris takes the reader on a journey that investigates today's intellectual climate, some basic methodology, informal fallacies and some important aspects of church history. On top of this he offers his thoughts on Archaeology and how this often supports many of the OT accounts we read about, the interaction between science and religion, pluralism and the problem of pain and suffering. All of which he does a great job at explaining and reminding the reader to avoid overstating their case when simply the truth is persuasive enough already.
Chris also demonstrates the mistakes Christians have made in the past and highlights the importance of Christian apologetics in the life of every Christian, if they are to share the gospel persuasively in today's sceptical culture.
This is not a typical Christian apologetics book that simply deals with a number of questions we usually get, it instead lays the foundation and wets the appetite to know and investigate more. I like that Chris always highlights to the reader that apologetics should always lead to the cross, its no good just answering peoples objections if we never make it to Jesus on the cross.
When I became a Christian 7 years ago I wish this book had have been available, it would have saved me alot of time and misunderstanding, that being said you really must buy a copy!
There's also a great list of resources in the bibliography.
