Reviews - What do customers think about Why I Believe?

For a quick overview, this book can't be beat  Jan 30, 2007
I've given out many copies of this book to people who at least claim to be seeking the truth -- it's the best primer I've found yet on the truth of bibilical Christianity, and it can be read in a few hours. I wish I'd discovered it in the beginning of my journey instead of several years into it.
Good, but not great.  Jul 10, 2002
I inherited this book from my late grandfather, and have just started reading it yesterday. I am nearly through with the book-it is a very quick read. Dr. Kennedy writes in a very clear and concise style that the average reader can understand. I do not agree with everything he writes though, keep in mind that he is a Presbyterian minister.

I do have one major gripe about the book though-Dr. Kennedy sources are usually not primary. He writes that Darwin said this, or Pliny the younger wrote that, yet he does not cite a primary source. As a trained historian and a serious seeker I would like to know exactly when and where a person said this or that. I do not want to be directed to a Josh McDowell book.

If it is serious apologetics that you are after then pick up Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. I also reccommend reading the works of the early Church fathers. I am grateful that I inherited this book instead of buying it.

Excellent Apologetical Work for Christian and Non-Christian  May 1, 2002
D. James Kennedy has crafted a wonderful apology for the believer and unbeliever elaborating on the fundamentals of the faith. Kennedy is a renowned Presbyterian Minister at Coral Ridge Presbyterian in Florida. An excellent reference work to fall back on.
Genuine Enlightment. You will learn A LOT in a short time.  Dec 6, 2001
Genuine Enlightment. You will learn A LOT in a short time in this pithy book.

This book is and great and easy read. This book will teach you a lot of things in a short time.

For example, a well known atheist archeologist (as well as many other atheist archiologists) who set out to disprove the book of Acts. They retraced the book of Acts, and found out the author (Luke) was absolutely correct and truthful and accurate and those same aetheists archiologists, became belivers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Another example in the book, the writings of Pontus Pilate. Pontus Pilate wrote about his interraction with Jesus, his imploring him (Jesus) of the fact that he is innocent and how his sending of Jesus to be crucified (because the Jews wanted it that way). There are many more examples and a lot more insightful education in this book.

I would have loved it, and I think it would have been a good idea, if he elaborated more extenisvely and added more examples in each chapter--like the one's described above. That's really the only critcism this book should get. I don't think it would have been much of a stretch to add just a few more pages to the book for the sake of elaborating and giving more details on the above examples.

I believe that if D. James Kennedy could have elaborated much more extensively and made each chapter 3-10 longer in length, and turned this pity read into a textbook if he wanted to. But, I don't think that was the purpose of this book (especially since most people don't like reading long books, or like reading books period).

You will learn a lot. I recommend that everyone read it. You will be introduced to and obtain a lot of education.

You will definitly have your eyes, heart, and mind opened to the truth and validity of God, Jesus, and the Bible.

If want a sound Christian education and learn true Christianity, then read D. James Kennedy in addition to your Bible (read and always remember 2Timothy 4:3-4, Galations 1:10, James 3:1, Titus 2:1, and Acts 17:11).
"Why I Believe" is a masterpiece of Christian apologetics. Kennedy writes as he preaches--with an obvious intelligence and remarkable clarity of thought. His arguments are well documented from both Holy Scripture and historical fact itself. Though perhaps not quite on the same level as C.S. Lewis's "Mere Christianity," Kennedy's book is nonetheless a thought-provoking work that every Christian would be well-served to read. One of the great things about Kennedy is that he never goes out of his way to be politically correct. While some of his views may strike some--even fellow conservatives--as a bit too opinionated, I personally find his wholeheartedly partisan voice refreshing in this era of diluted faith. Moreover, Kennedy's writing style is quite fluid and easy to understand, so you don't have to be a philosophy major to get the point. If you are, so much the better--you'll have something new to philosophize about. No, everyone may not agree with Kennedy's point of view, but even the most critical open-minded reader should come away from "Why I Believe" with a lot to think about, even as orthodox Christians will find themselves better armed to defend their faith.
