Second hand faith May 18, 2008
Many Christian High school students graduate and their parents send them off to college, even a Christian college. There they face challenges to "the faith of their fathers." The faith they profess is not the faith they possess. Soon they face challenges such as evolution, lack of credibility in the Bible, as well as temptations to sin or follow other religions. They will not survive on secnd-hand faith. This book will help them to develop and maintain a Christian lifestyle while away from home. It will help them to realize that they're not the "only one" out there.
Christians can not only survive, but flourish in college! May 16, 2008

This book is a JOKE. Dec 9, 2007
I've made it to page 92, and every page has made me laugh. He makes it seem as if unless a non-believer is asking, "How can Jesus save me what should I do." that they are blowing smoke and trying to divert your thought. He paints the non-believer as rude, and unintelligent on pages 70 and 71, where as the believer is portrayed as being calm, wise, and mannered. A lot of this book is written so that young Christians have a way to combat atheists, or those that might argue contrary beliefs. I am an atheist, I have heard Christian arguments some of them are well formed, this book tries to mimic them but fails horribly. His comparisons and descriptions are weak, and the author shows he has little understanding of alternate views, and his views on Christianity are also shaky depending on your denomination. I beg you for the sake of good argument, don't add this book to your arsenal. I would simply laugh, and end any conversation about religion with someone who would try to argue the way Budzisewski does.
I was raised and confirmed in the Lutheran church, my uncle who sent me the book is a Lutheran Pastor. If you want a way to defend your faith talk to your church leader, or research opposing views and think of them yourself. But don't use this book, you wont be taken seriously, and you'll seriously insult both yourself and the other person in the debate.
