After reading the Bible cover to cover, I had some questions. This book has not answered all of them. But, it has confirmed a great deal of the Bible for me. As for those who don't find what they were expecting. They should understand that those who are predisposed to one point of view may never be convinced. For me, I want to thank Josh McDowell for a job well done.
A good effort, but ultimately incompletely and woefully lacking. A lot of what he says is easily challenged and refuted by skeptics (e.g., infidels.org), and a lot of my own questions are left unanswered (e.g., what if it's just legend?). Worth noting is that McDowell has been contacted by skeptics groups, and he has refused to address (or even acknowledge) their well-thought-out arguments.Also, as has been noted, the book is lacking in organization. His "outline numbering" scheme is difficult to follow (at least for me). A lot of information is repeated in multiple section. It could have used some more editorial cleanup.Overall, as a book that is intended to be a definitive "answer book" for skeptics, for me it has been a miserable failure.
This is a fantastic book and the fact that he brings out the Hebrew text makes it even better. The Bible is the most fantastic book to read and read about and everyone should remember that this is what we are reading about in this book, is God's Word which is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword.
Excellent to me! Though a reference for all things Christian, I find myself just reading it straight through. As a compendium of knowledge, the Evidence that Demands a Verdict is easy to read and remarkably precise. If you believe, but just need help with your disbelief and enjoy reading a dictionary/encyclopedia, this book is for you! :)
