I'm really taken with this book, but when I looked up the author, it led me to someone else as the original author, so I guess only the very last chapter is David Servant's thoughts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misses Every Point 24 Mar. 2014
By Aidan Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I appreciate people who want to share the Gospel with others, and the truth is that I agree with most of the author's theological foundation. (In too many cases for my liking, he has added his own interpretation to the Scriptures and cannot justify the foundation for those interpretations.) It's kind of...everything that people hate about Christians, put into one book in the very voice that non-believers hate so much. And it's clear the author does not understand the nuance or the metaphor in the Bible. At one point, he actually says, "Most Christians in America don't need to pray for daily bread because we already have more than enough food." Really?

My biggest problem with this book is simply this: If you take out the key words the author is trying to prove, words like "Jesus" or "God," and replace them with complete nonsense words like "schrebble" and "hofnor," then you walk away with no convincing evidence and not even an enticing story to believe in either schrebble or hofnor. It's just plainly not a good defense of the faith. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give the Gift that keeps on Giving 8 Sept. 2013
By Stephanie A. Janke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's simple right? Picking out the perfect gift for someone you don't really know... or for someone you just met... or for a friend of a friend... Well it's simple when almost everyone likes getting a book, one that's an easy read, a thought provoking book that leaves everyone who reads it with a gift. I must say that I love and enjoy giving gifts, but when it comes to giving someone I don't really know a gift, or giving something special to someone I have just met, it seems to take some thought and extra time. But what if you could give everyone a gift that is worth more than any amount of money you could imagine, and what if you could give everyone a gift that would last from here to eternity... that's right, a gift that spans all time! Then this is the book and this is the gift for them and for you.
My life changed when I met Jesus. He was that special gift that someone shared with me. They didn't have this book to give to me. It would have helped me understand who He was. They didn't have this book to share with me. It would have made me think about what I was living my life for, and where on earth I was going. But this book, this gift, it can change a person's outlook on life. This book is just what that special someone needs.
So give the gift that keeps on giving...and you'll never have to say... Forgive Me for waiting so long to tell you this.....

4.0 out of 5 stars A great tool to share with a spiritually curious person who wants to know the basic message of the gospel 27 Sept. 2013
By EvangelismCoach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
One spiritual conversation is just not enough. The Lord will use many conversations to help bring your friend to Christ. But sometimes, you'll want something that you can give your spiritually thirsty friend something that they can read and ponder over.

This is where you can recommend Forgive Me for Waiting So Long to Tell You This. David Servant has written an easy to read book that you can use to help further your conversation with your spiritually thirsty friend.

Let them read this book with you and talk about each chapter together. Let the chapters of this book become conversation starters between you and your friend.

Servant starts with God as the creator. Then he moves into talking about the character of God.

After that, he spends a few chapters talking about our sinful nature and how that nature expresses it self in our selfishness.

Sin deserves a consequence - if not, then God would not be just. God's justice is the only fair remedy for our sin.

But in God's justice, mercy is evident. As seen by the Exodus encounters, God granted mercy to the Egyptians for many years, delaying His judgment. God granted mercy to the Israelites through the Passover, setting up the illustration of how Jesus died for us to shield us from God's wrath.

Skipping over the rest of biblical history (which is fine for the point of the book), Servant jumps to the existence of Jesus, his death, and the resurrection.

Once a person believes in what Jesus did for them, they have eternal life and Servant speaks a little on the effective habits of new Christians.

Forgive Me for Waiting So Long to Tell You This is not an academic book. It is not heavy on big words. It is not quoting long dead scholars nor dependent on generally inaccessible scholarly material. It is written for a popular audience so that you can further your conversation with your spiritually thirsty friend.

If your friend is hostile to the Christian faith, then this book may not be the right one. If your friend needs scholarly quotes from religious philosophers, this book is not the one. If you want a book on finer points of Christian theology like election, eternal security, and all the other implications of the gospel, this book isn't it. It's straight to the point about how Jesus died for our sins according to Scripture. If you have a theological pet peeve, this isn't the book to argue it.

However if your to spiritually thirsty friend is open to reading this book and discussing its contents with you, they will find it an easy and winsome read.

As you read it with them, you'll recall the basic gospel outline - Jesus died for our sins according to scripture.

As you discuss it with them, you'll have the joy of sharing your faith with your friend who has a tremendous spiritual thirst.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straight Talk for Christians and Unbelievers 18 Sept. 2013
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The goal of "Forgive Me For Waiting So Long to Tell You This" is for the reader to become a Christian. It begins with a discussion about why there has to be a God and continues on into what it means to be saved. The book is organized in a very logical way and is very easy to read. Sometimes the author is talking to the unsaved and sometimes to the saved. For the saved he discusses materialism and also states that "true faith results in deeds of unselfish love." David Servant plainly states what it means to be a Christian but he neglects to include a prayer the unsaved can pray. He states that repentance is needed and explains Christ's death on the cross. The only thing I disagreed with was his view that stars were made 80,000 years ago. Could God not have just made the light from the stars reach the earth immediately when he created them? I think so. The author does not however seem to believe in evolution which is good. This is a great book to give all your friends. At the least it will start a conversation with people who are unbelievers.
