Summary by the author. Nov 25, 2006
The book is well organized into outline form and suitable as a textbook or reference. It was well over 20 years in the making. Section I is exactly what the book title implies. The main purpose of the book is to lead skeptics to become Christians. The first 6 chapters focus on this goal. The rest of the section presents great details that were only summarized by earlier chapters. It covers the subjects of Biblical miracles and fulfilled prophecy, archaeology, history, what is wrong with other religions, and the costs and benefits of being a Christian. The chapter on answered prayer proves mathematically that the probability I could have by mere chance observed the success rate that I observed is only 1 part in 10 to the 44th power, i.e. 1 with 44 zeros after it. Yet the sample group was chosen in a mathematically unbiased manner. The chapter on modern miracles illustrates a plethoria of Christian related modern day miracles that were clearly impossible without God's involvement. Section II is to correct some negative views of Christianity. It contains a chapter of answers to difficult questions, a chapter showing the insignificant nature of Biblical contradictions, and more. Its chapter on sex is worth the price of the book. It presents the Biblical view and its practical justification regarding marriage, sex in marriage, incest, divorce, polygamy, rape, bestiality, lust, pornography, circumcision, pre-marital sex, adultery, homosexuality, abortion, and masturbation. It shows that it is possible for anyone to fully enjoy their sexuality without sinning, regardless of their marital status, provided they do it appropriately. The chapter on creation/evolution is extensive and is arguably the best treatment of this subject in existence. The author had a scientific profession and fully understands his subject. Comprehensive lists of the arguments for both sides of this issue are presented. The conclusion is drawn that while the Genesis account of our origins appears highly oversimplified, there is no doubt that God played an absolutely necessary role in our origins. The chapter is based on decades of studying the extensive and important literature written by Creationists and Evolutionists. The third and final section, "Wonderful Info & Advice for Christians and Jews", contains information that Christians desperately need to know but usually do not. It contains warnings about grace, suggested reading and music, the relationship of God to U.S. government, worldwide problems, picking and keeping a mate, how God talks to us, the Sabbath vs Sunday, anti-Semitism, the nature and applicability of Old Testament Law, aids in witnessing, Jesus' Deity, the Rapture, our purpose in life, and some political views. Its second chapter, "Challenges for the Churches", emphasizes the importance of faith, doctrine, substantiation of doctrine, Biblical instruction on sex, and repentance, and it illustrates the church's extreme neglect to provide the badly needed information required to increase our faith and understanding in these areas. The book is excellent to teach in church and seminary, to use as devotional material, and to lead skeptics to Christ.
