This book would make a decent handbook for most people to begin a study of apologetics and the different cultures, religions, worldviews and cults they might encounter.
However, it is not wholly accurate in how it represents some of the different groups/views, and as almost everything written from an "evangelical" type of view it is biased. The authors are not genuinely fair in the way they present, since they fail to present the religions/views from that religions' viewpoint.
I was a little disa

It has some good basic information but I did not like how it was painfully apparent that it was written from a Baptist/Evangelical point of view. There was a lot of misinformation in the book in the sections regarding cults. What it wrote about Seventh-Day Adventists is absolutely not true. Major disappointment in the editors desire to discredit Adventism to the point of misrepresenting its beliefs.

One good thing, however, is that it will lead me to learn more about other religions that are cons

This is an incredible resource for all Christians. Hindson, Caner, and the many other guest authors do an incredible job at susinctly explaining and overviewing the different religions, worldviews, and cults that we come into contact with today. An excellent resource for the layperson and the pastor. Every believer should have this book in their library.

This is a great source for information on many Apologetic topics, unfortunately due to my own experience I can say the section on the Jehovah's Witnesses is not all together correct, especially in accord with how to approach one... the real answer should be "don't."

I read this book for school it was for my Apologetics class. This book wasn't that bad to read even though I got bored at times reading it but it was somewhat interesting I learn a lot while reading this book.

An excellent tool to understand and equip for sharing to others not only regarding the many errors saddly espoused; but more important the truths of the Gospel.

Hindson makes understanding Apologetics appealing to the novice. His ability to simplify difficult concepts is truly a gift.
