Top customer reviews
This, the book does superbly. It is well written, clear, draws on a wide variety of sources and is not dogmatic. On the contrary, while setting out the scriptural principles, at all times the need for understanding and love is stressed.
I found it very helpful, and Nicky Gumbel's clarity of argument crystallised many thoughts and views with which I had found difficult.
While dealing with serious issues there is enough light heartedness throughout the book to give the reader some breathing space.
I found myself relating to everything that Nikky mentioned and was glad to have something to use when people asked me similar questions.
Overall, an easy to read, funny but serious look at some of the big questions for Christians and non Christians
The approach of using summaries, anecdotes and practical advice is engaging, very readable, persuasive, concise and extremely useful in the presentation of Christian answers. This book has depth, but does not set out to provide a thorough academic treatment of each topic - instead directing the reader to further reading if necessary.
This book never sets out prove God's existence. A feature it has in common with the Bible.
I recommend it to anyone who would like a clear Christian explanation of these often problematic areas. I enjoyed reading it very much and hope to make use of what I have learnt from it soon.
A good book for anyone who is interested in Christianity and the objections.
