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.
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.
