Item description for I'm Glad You Asked by Ken Boa, Kenneth Boa & A01...
Overview How many have you been placed in an uncomfortable situation when faced with skeptical questions about Christianity? You know Christianity is true, but you are unable to communicate the truth effectively. The Apostle Peter told us to always be prepared to give an answer to anyone who asks us about the hope that is in us. I'm Glad You Asked can help you become that able defender of the faith. This classic book, first published in 1982, explains the alternatives to the Christian position and then demonstrates why the Christian world view is valid. It provides answers to the basic questions people ask and guides you logically through these questions with helpful flow charts. And it shows, most importantly, how each objection is really an opportunity to present the Gospel.

Unique for its Flow Charted Logic on principle Christian doctrine Mar 19, 2008
This text is the only I have ever come across that FLOW CHARTS the logic of the more frequent questions and responses on the principle doctrines of Christianity. For me (and hopefully for the many other people to whom I have given the book) it is in the top ten most meaningful books I have studied on Christianity.
Somewhat helpful Jul 10, 2006
This book had some valid points, but it was clearly written in a different time. Thirty years ago, societal thinking was a lot different, so his points would be more accepted than they are today. Still a good read.
A very logical and applicable guide to answering peoples questions. Jan 17, 2006
The book does a great job of starting a square one...does God even exist then systematically just walks right on through topics leading up to did the resurrection of Jesus then goes into a few other areas of common questions. Each chapter is devoted to a topic and even includes a nice flow chart to help illustrated where each possible avenue leads to. Each chapter builds on the previous but since each chapter is devoted to its own stand alone topic you can just jump to that question to look for how to logically think through and reason the evidence.
The book handles all topics with enough throughness to give satisfaction with each topic while still maintaining good "readablility"
I'm Glad You Asked Hits the Mark Dec 28, 1999
This is the third copy of I'm Glad You Asked I have purchased. I keep "lending" copies of this book to others as a valuable reference, particularly when witnessing to non-Christians or Christians seeking to learn more about some very good questions: "What makes Christianity different?" "Doesn't Anyone who is good get to Heaven?" "What about those who have never heard the Gospel?"
I have several other books, including books by Hugh Ross (Creation and Time), Barry Wood (Questions non-Christians Ask Today) and Geisler and Brooks (When Skeptics Ask). All of these are good books, but I found this book answers the questions that are relevant today in a very readable yet thoughtful manner. It's well worth the investment.
This book is a great confidence builder ! Jun 12, 1998
The key strength of this book is in the fact that it challenges the reader to ask the question, " Is my faith reasonable?" If the answer is " No ", then the reader is then confronted with the decision of whether to hang on to an irrational faith or to discard it.
Christianity is viewed by many as a leap of faith and not a rational world view. This book walks the reader through the rational arguments for belief in the claims of Christ and of the historical Christian Faith.
I have used the book for personal study and as a course in evalgelism for young people and adults. I have watched as the syudents grew in confidence and became eager to take a reasonable Faith out into the market place of ideas.
