Although not as detailed as Josh's main apologetical works, such as, Evidence That Demands a Verdict, this book does exactly what Josh intends for it to do. It provides a ready reference for most of the major questions about the Christian faith and draws from most of his other works. He calls it an answer to his reader's best questions regarding Christian apologetics. I would call it "Evidence..." lite :-) I use my copy frequently; you will too.
I have found Bro. McDowell's ministry to be an exceptional one, especially in these handy guides on how to minister to the unsaved and unchurched. Even though you may disagree with some of what was shared in "A Ready Defense", one thing you have to agree on is the fact that Jesus is Lord and that He is coming again; whether you are ready or not.
"a ready defence" is a very remarkable book the arthur josh mcdowell has evidence for christian faith and the resurection and the Bible and some amazing comparisons to some of todays cults and our faith everything is topically aranged in this very handy book and its very easy to read and it is a great reference book and I will find this very usful for my Bible study at church . great gift idea for christmas and upcoming birthdays. also evidence for the reserection by josh mcdowell
