Know Why You Believe Sep 2, 2008
This book is an excellent starter on apologetics. There are more recent books on the subject, but this is so "readable."

Great book. Good information. We are doing this study as a group and are enjoying the conversation and input that it encourages.
Best Resource for Layman Apologetics Oct 22, 2007
Have taught Bible Studies and Sunday School classes from this book 4 times over the course of 20 years. It's always the most popular study. Deepens understanding of the Christian faith tremendously. Enjoyable reading and generates lots of discussion.
Great book on apologetics Aug 21, 2006
This book is an excellent introduction to apologetics. The chapters are organised according to questions that unbelievers often ask. The chapters are easy to read and they present the facts in a concise, intelligent, and convincing way. This book helped me realise how little I know, for example about the historical evidence for Jesus, and I found myself wanting to memorize portions of the book. I have been memorizing parts of this book, and I have been reading it over and over. I recommend it to all believers who need an introduction to apologetics.
Nice summary of answers to common questions Oct 22, 2003
My wife asked me to read this book to see if it was any good- so I did. Like most reviewers, I enjoyed this book despite its simplicity. It is pretty short, easy to follow, and worth the time spent reading it. I was somewhat familiar with certain sections of the book, but enjoyed the pragmatic way that Paul Little presents the Christian view to the reader.
The context for the book is that Paul Little wanted to provide answers to the 12 most common questions he received when discussing Christianity on college campuses. He fulfills his purpose, and provides many references, and additional materials to research if you want to go deeper into any particular subject.
You will most likely not be interested in all 12 topics discussed, but it makes sense that most Christians should have some familiarity with these questions, and the basic answers provided in this book. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick introduction to apologetics, or different ways to answer the questions that may arise as you share your faith with others.
