Great book. As always with Jimmy Akin, it's thoroughly researched, and calmly and charitably expressed. In addition, the book is a fun topic, not technical and it's a quick read. Great choice for teens just getting going with apologetics. My son loved it!

Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, he started an intensive study of the Bible.
