|Good Basic Review of Apologetics Feb 25, 2007|
|This is a good basic apologetics primer for its intended audience - teenagers.|
It has some very good information about the historical evidences of Jesus and his resurrection. It is also good at exposing several of the myths about Christianity.
This text is certainly very basic in comparison to McDowell's 'Evidence That Demands A Verdict', C.S. Lewis' 'Mere Christianity', or Lee Strobel's books, 'The Case For Christ' and 'The Case For Faith'. I would recommend all of these books for adults or teens looking for more indepth treatment of evidences for the Christian faith. As a starting point for high school or younger kids, this is a pretty good one.
|Not perfect, but very enjoyable Nov 30, 2006|
|I had a good time reading this book, and I think the authors came up with some very convincing arguments. I disagree with them on some things -- for instance, although I'm a born-again Christian I have no problem with evolution. But I don't expect to agree with everything in a book, and there's no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater. (What a horrible image that is!)|
|Bordering on Fundamentalism Jun 24, 2006|
|The purpose of this book is to act as a FAQ concerning religion and how it fits into their life. According to the authors, they do this by bringing to light evidence that proves that the way of Christianity is the true path for a happy life, however the supposed evidence is merely Bible passages. The rest is the author preaching almost archaicly, about the danger of the devil's temptation and the glory of God. It doesn't have the free-thinking and open feel that is necessary for a book targeted towards teenagers. The rest of the language feels dated, as is expected for a book written in 1992, however I doubt it would have impacted teens then either. It isn't funny, it isn't "real", nor will it satiate curious minds about what Christianity really is about. Really, for a book targeted at an audience with questions regarding their faith, it is remarkable that it is so reliant on the reader blindly believing it.|
|Josh McDowell has done it again! Oct 25, 2005|
|Once again, Josh McDowell has produced a phenomenal work that serves to help Christian teens live godly lives in an ungodly world. This time, Josh tackles various wicked worldviews (any worldview that is not Christian is wicked) and modern philosophies such as moral relativism. It even tackles certain evils within Christianity such as the ungodly notion that one must check one's brains at the door when one enters the Church (meaning when one becomes a Christian).|
This book should be taught in every teen Sunday School class and youth group.
|Teenage tested and approved Aug 14, 2003|
|This book caught my eye and I got a copy for my boys. My thirteen-year-old son has already worked throught the whole thing and my fifteen-year-old is working on it now, both completely on their own initiative. The content addresses some of the questions/arguments Christians may have or encounter from friends who are not like-minded in faith. Highly recommended as a devotional guide that will hit the spot with teenage boys.|
