Mini-Review: 6 Jun. 2006
By Alan L. Chase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I met Eric Metaxas a few weeks ago when he was speaking at a gathering at the Harvard Club in Midtown Manhattan. Imagine what it must have been like for a Yale graduate to stoop to having to speak at the Harvard Club!

How can I best describe Eric Metaxas to the readers of the White Rhino Report? Two things come to mind that I can share that may encapsulate the man and the myth that is Eric Metaxas. Picture George Stephanopoulos with a sense of humor, and you are on your way toward being able to envision Eric. Picture a speaker at the epicenter of a flurry of good-natured heckling remarks from the audience - remarks dealing humorously with epistemology (not usually a knee-slapping topic!)- and you will begin to understand Eric.

Eric is a communicator who wields humor deftly - like a surgeon with a scalpel - to cut to the heart of serious matters. He has written for The New York Times, the Atlantic Monthly and the children's video series, Veggie Tales. He has authored more than thirty children's books, and hosts the acclaimed speakers' series, "Socrates in the City."

In his new book, "Everything You Always Wanted to Know about God (But Were Afraid to Ask)," he does an excellent job of making complex spiritual issues both comprehensible and accessible. Using humor and a fast-moving Q&A format, he tackles in fresh ways many of the age-old questions about God, Jesus, religion, heaven and hell, angels and demons and a plethora of other pithy topics.

Eric and his editors wisely chose to format the book without using direct biblical quotations, but he provides the biblical references in the footnotes and appendix. He also leads readers who desire to dig more deeply into a question or a topic to other classic works of Christian apologetics (the art and science of defending one's faith) and inspiration - by authors such as C.S. Lewis, John Stott, Josh McDowell, Os Guinness and Chuck Colson.

This book makes a very good starting point for anyone asking deep questions about faith and spirituality, and is a nice addition to the library of anyone who takes seriously the challenge to share their faith with those who are seeking.

I encourage you to visit Eric's website: [...]

Enjoy.

"EVERYTHING" About Jesus? Well...Let's Say "A LOT". And It's Pretty Funny. 19 Feb. 2010
By Daniel L. Marler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Eric Metaxas deals with the subject of apologetics in a light-hearted, witty, engaging manner. He utilizes a question and answer format that gives the book a conversational feel. It's a fast-paced type of Q&A style that goes back and forth frequently and it helps the reading move along quickly. A "Publishers Weekly" review describes Metaxas as a humor writer and some of the humor in the book almost borders on being silly. I don't mean that in a disparaging way, it's funny. Really. But it's right there on the edge, sometimes, where it's almost downright silly. I like it...but then again, sometimes I border on being silly, too.

I mention these issues regarding the overall tone of the book because I think of "apologetics" as a blend of theology, philosophy and history, and these are not subjects that one typically breezes through quickly when reading. So, this approach to the subject would, presumably, be very effective for many people, but particularly, for those who have not done a lot of prior reading in this field of study.

This is the "Jesus Edition" of "Everything You Always Wanted To Know..." it is part of an "Everything You Always Wanted To Know..." series. Admittedly, this is not a deep, scholarly treatment of the subject of Jesus--you can tell by looking at the cover of the book--but it's substantive enough to be of value and to offer answers to genuine questions. It even has some moments of profundity.

I know, I've suggested that this book can be both "silly" and "profound". Hey, I think it pulls it off.

From now on, when I'm dealing with people who ask me to recommend a book on the subject of "apologetics"--even though they may not actually know that "apologetics" is the word that describes what it is they are looking for--this is going to be one of the books I will recommend.

C.S. Lewis for the ipod Era 18 Oct. 2005
By John Zmirak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I picked up this book last night and immediately dove in. It's funny, enlightening, breezy and persuasive--the perfect thing for a believer to give his (her) semi- or un-believing girl (boy) friend. Reminds me of all the C.S. Lewis books I gave away to good-looking lasped Christian girls in college and grad school. I'll probably end up giving this one away, too--but not till I've finished reading it and enjoying it. An apologetics book that will slip past people's defenses and make them think. I recommend it highly.

Making God Relevant with a touch of humor 25 Mar. 2006
By Richard Teeters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An extremely well written book that gives one a basis for a better understanding of God. It has a very catchy and readable style. The humor may elicit some out loud laughs. It's thoughtful, doctrinal and practical all at the same time. A very difficult balance to attain. This is a great read for the serious theologian. It is also a great book for the person who doesn't know what they believe and are just seeking truth.

The line between deep theology and just plain fun can rarely live together between the same covers. When it happens we should get a case and pass them out in Central Park...or Kubul.

Plants a Seed 10 Feb. 2006
By Barry Fitzsimmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This light-hearted and entertaining book is perfect for readers who are beginning their walk with Christ, and for those who are not yet "saved" but sense a God-shaped hole in their hearts. True Christians can feel comfortable sharing "Everything You Always Wanted to Know About God (but were afraid to ask)" with fellow believers, and with those in their mission field.

Of course, Metaxas does not offer all of the answers here -- and there are many, many more questions. I, for one, hope more volumes will come, and more people will find themselves gently led to Jesus, thanks to Eric Metaxas. Bravo, brother.
