Reviews - What do customers think about Holman Quicksource Guide To Christian Apologetics?
Wait table, office desktop, coffee table outreach FAB Jun 15, 2009
Great discussion starter. Reasonable and visually attractive. Unusual for apologists who are typically long on content and short on creative delivery. Love the comparison and contrast tabs and 'best fit' or glass slipper analogy of the cumulative case. Excellent book. One that every Christian grad student and faculty member should be found lugging around campus. Did I mention a 'great discussion starter' and elevator? True.
The BEST summary of Christian Apologetics Apr 4, 2007
I have a sizeable collection of books on apologetics, but Doug Powell's wonderful book is the best compilation I've seen of all the major work in this field. The book is written in a style that is easily readable and usable for lay people and has beautiful graphics that add greatly to the content. The progression of his argumentation is excellent: he begins with traditional arguments for what we can observe about the Creator from the creation and then describes the "glass slipper"(made up of these observations) that must fit any religion that would claim to offer a true interpretation of our existence and the universe. He then proceeds to make very sound arguments for why the Christian position is the only worldview that can account for the reality of the universe and of man. I would recommend this book very highly to anyone interested in Christian apologetics.
Visual and Accessible Jan 18, 2007
This is a good introduction to Christian apologetics and many of the areas of focus for those engaged in the defense of the faith. It is an easy read, with charts and graphics used to good advantage, making it accessible to even a young audience. The chapter notes indicate resources that are helpful for those seeking to take any given topic to the next level. A well presented book that invites exploration.
Logic & creativity abound in Doug Powell's "Guide to Christian Apologetics" Nov 7, 2006
Doug Powell does a great job of taking a seeker thru logical steps to bring people to faith in Christ; from really excellant original concepts (doug utilizes the "glass slipper" i.e. "does it (islam, relitivism, etc) fit?" to wonderful graphics work to go along with the text. Doug is a true rennaisance man: songwriter, musician, graphics guru, and now, Apologetist. The visuals in this book really do a great job of reenforcing doug's points. This is what really stets in apart! One would be hard pressed to label this a "dry theological tome!" This would make a great gift to those in your life who are seeking for truth.
Wow! What an amazing resource! I love it! Aug 8, 2006
This book is the best apologetics resource I own. It's the most comprehensive handbook I've ever seen on apologetics. Each page is loaded with full color photos making it much more interesting to read. This is a great book for personal reading or Sunday school classes. The modern design also makes it great for High School students.
Powell's book is fresh and to the point. It's also very accessible to an average reader. That's what I love so much about it. He starts with the question of God's existence and then takes the reader step by step from there. It's well thought out and easy to follow.
If you wish to do a class on apologetics in your church, look no further - this is your book!
My wife (who normally doesn't read apologetics books) took one look at it with all the pictures and now she's reading it. Trust me, that's a miracle in itself.
