Excellent Jul 14, 2006
I really like this book and wish I owned it. Although the list of alleged contradictions wasn't much, I did see some that I don't recall coming across and intend to include them in my book 101 Cleared Up Contradictions in the Bible. I think it would be better if he had left out the so called contradictions, because there are so many of them and would have been better for him to just refer the readers to other books such as mine or online sites that deal with contradictions.
A SOLID Foundation!!! Jun 2, 2006
When I was youth pastoring I found it imperative to give the young beleivers in my care a reason for their faith. While teaching lessons designed to enforce beleif in the Christians of my group, and to confront the skeptic, I often times found myself using material that was "above their heads".
Because of this I searched high and low for a soundbook that had real depth, without being overly verbose. This book HIT THE SPOT!!!
It has GREAT quotable one line defenses for different claims of Scripture, as well as full page explanations. It IS NOT overly technical, but it is not written for dummies either.
Makes a great book for small group study, and as an introductory text to basic Christian apologetics.!!!
The Perfect Apologetic Book Feb 13, 2006
Of the dozens of apologetic titles that sit on my shelf, this one is my absolute favourite.
Ralph Muncaster has done a superb job of collecting information from many realms of apologetic fields and collating them into one book. This book covers everything you could ever want: it fights evolution's universe-origins theories, fights biological evolution, provides archeological evidence for the OT & NT, provides information on ancient text, canonisation, historical literature, demonstrates a map of time with events, gives a run down on other religions, outlines fulfilled prophesies, provides a strong case for the deity of Christ, and answers alot of common questions.
Of all my books, this is the one i keep reaching back for, when i need to recall how to refute an argument.
It's true that this book might be considered quite technical to some, but that all comes down to the individual reader. The statistical information and layout of facts is so compelling.
The only downside i have is that it takes an old-earth-age view (which it explains why that view is taken), and as i share a different view, i simply source that topic from alternative resources... but the rest of this book is excellent... not only that, but the topics are layed out in the perfect order that allows an individual to go from "newbie" to "expert" in one book! A must for all serious apologists.
Small Group Nov 7, 2005
I over see 6 small groups and use this book with them. I have heard nothing but praise from the people in the groups. In fact a lot of them enjoyed it so much they are buying more for friends and family. Some are even buying Ralph's Booklets which are in more detail than this study.
Not for Dummies Apr 13, 2005
The case for Christ is unfortunately not a simple one. However, I feel this book does a fair job at explaining in the simplest terms possible the various points that cover everything from Old Testament prophecy, ancient history, archaeology, and biology that make up the case for the undeniable truth that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior.
Still, this book does require a great bit of intellect to comprehend. For example, the book describes (very well) the differences between micro-evolution and macro-evolution and why there is imperical data to support one and not the other. By the way, this book reconciled evolution and creation for me in way many other books could not. This alone made it worth my while to read. However, there are many other points that are made as brilliantly well.
The book is broken up into 40 chapters and is formatted in a way that makes it possible to use in a group study. However, the chapters are a bit long to, say, read 5 a week for an 8 week study. That said, I'm still going to encourage my small group to use it for a study. The case is an important one to understand, so hopefully we'll be up to the challenge so as to share this information with others in an evangelical manner.
My advice is to read the first chapter. You'll either put it down right away (like the other reviewer) or be compelled to read on. Either way, all Christians should know why it is that we can trust the Bible better than any other source of information on this planet!
