Tries to answer faith's toughest questions. Frankly, it falls short.

Samples tries to answer the "20 Toughest Faith Questions" but this is really a book for people who already accept the answers he's giving. He doesn't really address anything tough here. The biggest flaw is his repeated use of straw-man tactics, such as saying something like "atheists say 'I only believe what I can see'" and then showing how you can't see a lot of things you believe. Things like this are quite trivial. He also manages to work in Pascal's Wager as a genuine argument... what year i ...more

I had to read this book for my World Religions class. I felt as though it were a "dumbed down" version of Lee Strobel's The Case for Christ. The author asks and answers questions about faith that in all honesty as a believer in Christ, I just never asked. I tried to take in the good and disregard the bad, but in the end I really didn't agree with much of his theology. He seems like a legalist and that there's no room for moves of the Spirit. In the end, I gave the book 3 stars because for someon ...more

Shelves: did-not-finish
Unfortunately this book was so full of gobbledegook that it was not worth finishing. I decided just reading the Holy Bible was far more valuable and educational.

I've always enjoyed Ken Sample's podcasts from Reasons to Believe, so I decided to pick up this book. Ken does a great job at answering tough questions about Christianity that you hear quite commonly among believers and skeptics alike. Some of the questions given responses to are God's existence, the Creation, the reliability of Scripture, the Trinity, etc... Of course with 20 sections to the book, each question isn't gone over in great detail, but solid arguments are still offered nonetheless.

Samples works for Reasons to Believe a science apologetics ministry and is one of the most astute & clearest communicators I've ever heard. I'm also just reading his chapter on the resurrection, something I like to do the month preceding Easter.

Reading for an apologetics class. I like this book but he kind of comes to the issues with a "well, duh" attitude. He is an excellent writer but highly intellectual...
