"This volume presents a helpful overview, exhibiting several strengths while introducing the field of Christian apologetics. Initially, it surveys a wide range of essential cognate areas, from critical thinking, to methodology, to a brief survey of apologetics through the centuries. Another asset is its treatment of several specific issues of current interest, such as Darwinism, Old Testament archaeology, scientific cosmology, pluralism, and the perennial problems of evil and suffering. The overall effort should provide believers with greater knowledge, clarity and assurance regarding their Christian faith."
"Chris Sinkinson has achieved something rather remarkable here. In just a few hundred pages he looks at the craft of apologetics from almost every angle. He examines the history of apologetics, methodology, key figures in the discipline and the most important arguments. And he does all this with wit and terrific style. One of the best introductions to apologetics I have seen."
"If you feel that you should apologize for apologetics or think that it's just for the experts, then this book is for you. Chris Sinkinson's brilliant introduction to Christian apologetics will help every Christian give a reason for the hope that they have. An essential textbook for any Christian who not only wants to understand apologetics but more importantly wants to help their friends overcome barriers to belief. Chris has a brilliant ability of making the complicated simple. His lectures in apologetics at Moorlands College have been the highlight for many of the students. Now you can get the benefit without leaving your armchair."
"This is an astonishing book for every thinking Christian. Its scope is enormous, but its arguments are well-researched and cogently presented. I wish I had read it years ago!"
"Chris Sinkinson's new book Christian Confidence is a surprise gift for curious minds. It is unputdownable, packed with relevant information, little-known facts and one of the most clear and wide-ranging presentations I've ever read on the vital subject of apologetics. I predict a wide readership and significant impact on those willing to test great ideas. "In a world suffering from an epidemic of truth decay, one great need is for Christians to be able to defend their faith convincingly among rival perspectives that compete with or attack Christianity. This scintillating, crystal-clear introduction to all the big issues is wide-ranging, intelligent and totally accessible. Readers will rediscover solid foundations for a faith that is real, and a biblical worldview that can hold its own in any debate with those open to truth. Even the hardened skeptic will be made to think and perhaps, think again."
" Christian Confidence is an accurate title for this impressively wide-ranging and useful survey of apologetics down the centuries, and its value for evangelism in today's world. Get it. Read it. Use it!"
"Now you can experience what Moorlands College students enjoy firsthand: a reasoned, clear, accessible introduction to defending the faith from one of the most able younger apologists I know. Fasten your seat belt for a whistle-stop tour from ancient Greek philosophers via Enlightenment thinkers through to worldviews of twenty-first-century thinkers as diverse as Alvin Plantinga and Richard Dawkins. Read and you will discover that you have many reasons to rejoice in having 'Christian Confidence'!"
