Good Questions, Good Answers Sep 27, 2006
I bought this book because every year, our church has a theological question and answer night, and this book has a lot of good questions that people ask about the Christian faith.
R.C Sproul is eminently qualified to write this book because he is a leading apologist for the Christian faith. I especially appreciated his answers to questions related to God's sovereignty and man's freedom, the identity of Jesus Christ, the reliability of the Bible, and heaven and hell. Sproul's questions and his answers will prepare and help a pastor or Christian layperson explain the faith to those with inquiring minds.
I also appreciated the humble spirit that Sproul brings to this book. He knows that it is an awesome thing to teach the word of God, and he feels the weight of the calling (you can tell this by reading the introduction).
It should also be stressed that R.C Sproul is a five point Calvinistic Christian. That means his answers to questions related to predestination, eternal security, the end times, and the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross are going to be slightly different than the answers a less Calvinistic Christian might give.
For example, Sproul believes that God predestines certain individuals to be saved and chooses to pass the rest of humanity by. He also teaches that Jesus died only for those chosen to salvation.
He also teaches that the coming of Jesus predicted in Matthew 24 is a coming in judgment on Jerusalem and the temple, not a 2nd coming to establish a 1000 year millennial kingdom on earth. Some believers in Christ do not hold these positions, and yet they color a number of Sproul's answers.
But the preponderance of the book gives solid, evangelical answers to the questions people ask. Sproul is also not afraid to say that sometimes, the answer is "I don't know." This is a good book, and I am glad I found it at the Barnes and Noble book store. Rev. Marc Axelrod
Tough answers to tough questions Mar 13, 2006
Once again, R.C. Sproul uses his conversational style to shed light on tough questions in Scripture. His insights and deep understanding of the Bible should help any serious student of Scripture. I recommend this book highly. Samuel Hall
A Good Question Sep 24, 2005
All steps to making the purchase were very easy. My merchandise arrived in a timely manner (as expected) and was in the same condition as described by the owner.
I am a Christian who has been studying the bible for about five years, and I still have much to learn. I love to read books that ask the tough questions and try to answer them based on the bible! I read another review of this book saying it does not do that; I respectfully disagree. I believe Mr. Sproul has given us an intelligent, succinct, well-thought-out answer to many of the difficult questions that come up about the Christian faith. I pick the book up and re-read it often, as I can always find something new. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an educated approach to questions we sometimes hear from others, or even come up with ourselves!

Sproul tried to answer age-old theoligical questions in one to two paragraphs with litle Biblical support or objectivity.
