    "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" is a collection of evidence that helps believers have confidence and unbelievers see that there is a reasoned, factual basis to Christianity. I've owned previous editions of this book, the latest being the 1999 version. This book has been updated to include the latest discoveries and arguments as well as commentary at the beginning from Sean McDowell. While much of the core evidence is the same, there has been some rewriting and changes made as the new information was added. Even if you've read the previous versions, it's worth getting this version for the new material. I'd highly recommend this as a great reference resource (for looking up information that interests you) or to read through from start to finish.

    The book covered why we believe that there is a god (evidence for theism), ways that the Bible is unique from other books, how the Bible was written, manuscript and archeological evidence that the New and Old Testaments are accurate, how the text of the Bible was copied by scribes and how accurate they were, information about the Gnostic gospels and other texts that were not included in the Bible and why they weren't included. Christian and non-Christian sources and archeological discoveries that support the existence of Jesus, examining Jesus' claims to deity and does that make him lord, liar, or lunatic. Old Testament prophecies that Jesus fulfilled, evidence for Jesus' literal, bodily resurrection, and why the apostles were willing to die. How the Old Testament and ancient near eastern texts are similar but also strikingly different, evidence for the historical reliability of Genesis (Adam and Eve, the patriarchs), Exodus, the conquest, the united monarchy, the divided monarchy, the exilic period, and other books of the Old Testament (Pentateuch, Isaiah, Daniel). Some alleged contradictions in the Bible and how they can be harmonized. Why truth matters, can you know the truth, answering skeptics, are miracles possible, and many other topics.

    I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers.

It covers the many , many issues we are faced with in our world today.

    "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" is a scholarly book and not for the faint of heart. This 798 page resource includes a lengthy introduction regarding the topic of apologetics and the Christian faith, as well as a prologue discussing "The Role of Presuppositions," the definition of "Naturalism," and "Evidence for Theism." After these first seventy-four pages you enter the meat of the book which presents "Evidence for the Bible," "Evidence for Jesus," "Evidence for the Old Testament," and "Evidence for Truth" in thirty-two total chapters..

    In today's culture, having answers for commonly asked questions regarding Christianity is crucial to carrying on intelligent conversations. "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" provides so much evidence to back up those answers. For example, a topic that is frequently debated is an "Historical Adam". Chapter 17 is devoted to discussing that debate as well as providing "Evidence from the Bible and Jewish Texts for Adam and His Family," "Evidence from Science for Adam and His Family," and "Literary and Linguistic Evidence for Adam and His Family." Various sources are cited in this fascinating chapter and throughout the whole book. "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" is definitely not a fictional book written by two scholars. Instead, arguments are defined and answered from a myriad of international sources.

    I will admit that I have yet to completely read this book as it is quite in-depth and takes a lot of concentration to plow through the many long quotes and scientific terms. Although I highly recommend this book to Christians who wish to strengthen the defense of their faith, as well as to scholarly types who are investigating Christianity, it is not a book for the everyday person. I will continue to read it as I have time, but it will be most useful to me as a resource when I need to defend my faith. This book would be an excellent one to open up and read and discuss with an academically-minded friend over a strong cup of tea! But my teenagers and husband are not going to choose to read it in their spare time.

    My rating reflects the college - or higher - reading level of the text, indicating that it will be a difficult read for most people. However, the quality of the information presented gives it a strong 4-star rating. #TrueEvidence
