Product Description

Review

Fasten your seatbelt for a whistle-stop tour from ancient Greek philosophers via Enlightenment thinkers through to the worldviews of twenty-first-century thinkers … Read and you will discover that you have many reasons to rejoice in having a 'confident Christianity'. --Steve Brady

This book will not only equip you to evangelize it will fire you up.

'Confident Christianity' is an accurate title for this impressively wide-ranging and useful survey of apologetics down the centuries, and its value for evangelism in today's world. Get it. Read it. Use it!

--Michael Green

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Paperback
This book broadly covers apologetics from Plato to C.S.Lewis and other contemporaries. Sinkinson takes you on a tour of apologetics through the ages, pausing to explore some details, reflecting to apply this and referencing further reading resources along the way.

I particularly enjoyed Sinkinson's use of examples and persistent reflection on practical evangelism. I found myself again and again thinking of where I can apply what I was reading to my own life along the way with little effort. Many examples referenced modern takes on developments philosophies which I found fascinating such as Descartes and the Matrix.

I have previously been on an expedition to Israel with Chris and others where I found his archeological and biblical insights invaluable. I've also spent 3 years as a student under his apologetic and biblical teaching at Moorlands Bible College, when I discovered Chris had published a book on apologetics it went straight to the top of my reading list.

I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to delve into Christian apologetics and broaden their understanding. I think the book lacks the depth to gain a deep insight into specific apologetics, and if that's your aim then this books is not for you (it's out of the scope of the book), instead Sinkinson aims to give a wide overview equipping you with the knowledge and resources to take yourself further into the different areas.

I have been fortunate enough to sit in lectures given by Chris Sinkinson and also taken part in one of the study tours he has organised in Israel. Doctor Chris Sinkinson brings the Old Testament, New Testament and Apologetics alive, not just for some stuffy Christian academics but for everyone. He has the ability to take complicated arguments and presents them in a manner that is understandable by all. I would encourage Christians, young and old to buy this book, but I would also ask those who have no faith or don't believe in the Christian message, to read this book, and when you finish it,you may still not agree with the Christian message, but you will understand their viewpoint and what they believe. He was one of the two best lecturers at Moorlands during my three year degree course and I regret that I do not have any of his classes in my last two terms.
