Seller Inventory n. Book Description Eerdmans.
Any book that has seen three different editions over the course of several decades is going to have a fairly polished style and strong organization as the editing process refines a book, and this one is no different in that regard. Then the author turns to the question of the truth and reliability of scripture.
After this the author tests the claim that Jesus was really God, turns to deal with the question of whether faith is reasonable, asks the reader to place themselves along the spectrum of doubt and belief, and asks how we can know God before closing with an invitation to the reader to join the author in a belief that does not in any way abdicate our status as rational beings. The author then promotes his various other books, most of which would probably also be worth reading, as well as promotes events hosted by the author and the bibliography of sources used by the author, along with some notes and author bio information.
In other words, this book goes where one would expect a skillful apologetic work to go and does it well and thoughtfully. In reviewing a book like this, as someone who generally likes a good apologetic work, I feel it necessary to point out who this book is for.
It is perhaps little surprise that being a person with a high degree of intellectual interest and high levels of education that I would be a target audience for apologetic works. Apologetic works, after all, seek to defend the reasonableness of Christianity to an audience that appreciates appeals to reason. Not everyone may find such books equally edifying, but for the audience they are aimed at, they seek to hold those who discuss faith in the public sphere to a standard that gives at least equal regard to the truth claims of Christianity as the seldom disputed truth claims of other ancient writings with far less attestation and far more textual confusion than is found in the Bible, and that is something that can and should be supported by any believer who wishes to see the high standard of Christianity when one is dealing with a level playing field in public discourse.
