Product Description

Product Description

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable. 

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book of two halves 26 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
This is the book version of the authors' 12-point presentation to demonstrate step-by-step that Christianity is true.

Reading this book as an atheist I found the first half of the book particularly hard going, where they attempt to demonstrate from first principles that God does exist. This is not because they tackle particularly difficult concepts, or because they write in a hard-to-understand way - they don't. Rather it's because the philosophical and scientific objections to their point of view are often dealt with in a rather patronising and smug way, sometimes missing the point of the objection. For example, a few scientific theories are described as "couterintuitive" or "against common sense", and therefore it takes more faith to believe them than Christianity. Unfortunately, as anyone who has ever studied Quantum Mechanics or Relativity knows, just because something is counterintuitive doesn't mean it's not accurate.

After about my fifth exaggerated reaction to something they had written (clasping my hand over my eyes, yelping out loud, etc), I thought to myself "this must be how it feels to be a Christian reading The God Delusion". The style of writing in The God Delusion can be patronising and smug at times, and simplifies theological objections to Dawkins' point of view. But just as I would highly recommend The God Delusion to anyone, and insist they force their way through the bits they don't like, I did the same with this book.

Once the authors have demonstrated to their own satisfaction that this is a monotheistic universe (and therefore Judaism, Christianity or Islam are the only religions that could possibly be correct) they then start to go through the bible and explain why they believe Christianity is true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well structured, easy to read and non preachy. 22 Feb 2014
By Louise
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Really good read, I was extremely skeptical, but lots of my questions have been answered by well thought out and evidenced arguments. It is written very simply and in a manner that's easy to read and follow, not at all preachy. I'm reading it as extra reading for degree to assist with critical thinking and not because I was particularly bothered by the subject matter. I now feel quite well informed on the subject and would feel confident in a debate. For people that already believe its a chance to get affirmation and some tips for answering questions you may face, for non believers, you may find some questions answered and possibly even be steered towards further investigations..

3.0 out of 5 stars A self help book for faith 18 Feb 2012
By Lucy Hargrave VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The book is well written and clearly tells you in each section what you will be reading about. Although I wouldn't say I found this an enjoyable or in some respect easy book to read, I do think it was worth while. Having been raised a Christian all my life I was familiar with the biblical references and the context of what they were talking about throughout the book, I don't know if this is the best book to read if you are an atheist and are exploring the idea of religion for the first time. Personally when I read it I felt it was more suited to an audience which was religious but perhaps wanted their faith reinforced or even to gain a deeper understanding of the bible. As the blur states it helps come up with evidence for your faith and reasons why god is real, and that is what it does.
As mentioned before the layout of the book was well organised and meant you could easily read a section and then continued with your day, I can't really compare it with other religious books I have read as this would be my first but I thought it was good and felt enlightening even if it did read a little like a self-help (of which I have read).
The reason I have only given it three stars is because its not a book I would read again in a hurry or perhaps ever, this is most likely a personable thing because although I am a big reader I tend to read fiction, and light-hearted fiction at that. This for me is perhaps something I would re-read snippets rather than the whole book again.
If you buy the book I hope you enjoy it and I would recommend it if you are religious or newly religious

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Reasoned Response 29 Dec 2011
By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Norman Geisler is a theologian who is always worth a read, and in this volume he is joined by Frank Turek who has a great appreciation for apologetics. This volume is a well presented discussion of the real questions that Christians face in defending their faith. It is certainly recommended to those who are searching for answers and is a good tool for Christians who are looking for strategies to use in their discussions.
In the widest terms this book is a discussion about truth.

This book asks, embraces and wrestles-down the big questions in a style which is easy to assimilate. Some passages are even written as a conversation, which is both helpful and refreshing. The frequent use of tables and illustrations adds to the ease in which this can be accessed.

The volume is not dogmatic or dismissive of other opinions but it is clear!

There is no such thing as the perfect apologetics book but this is certainly one worth having on your shelf. Perhaps as an addition to a couple of Paul Copan's recent works this would give a reader a good grounding in healthy debate.
