Cobb does Christians a great service by challenging them and showing them how to own what they believe. It's a basic course in critical thinking, along with a survey of theological opinions that modern Christians hold about a variety of topics. The strength of this book is that it doesn't assume the correct answers. It's hard to think clearly and critically when there's a gun to your head.
