I would give this 3.5 stars. It's a fairly short, nontechnical apologetics book. It's from 1996, but it's not too dated, though I suppose if Evans were to write this book again, he would address some different topics. This is a book that would be good to give undergraduates, perhaps someone heading off to college.

Quite good. Accessible overview of the basis for belief in Christianity. I highly recommend it.
