Dave Nelson5 Stars Out Of 5Your got-to reference book!October 4, 2017Dave NelsonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Newly updated, this book has presented the evidence for the Christian faith for nearly half a century. Not only do the authors present a mountain of evidence, but they have done it in a scholarly manner. No side-stepping, no eloquent verbage, just straight forward, factual evidence that must be reckoned with. The authors have not just dealt with minor critics for every issue of contention, they have taken on the most serious challenges against the Christian faith head on. Their conclusions are straight forward and honest, even when evidence is minimal.
Are you a skeptic? Are you an atheist? Are you a nominal or strong Christian? Whatever position you may take, this book is for all. If you are not a Christian, this book will not only challenge your beliefs, but give you something to think about that demands to be resolved. If you are a nominal Christian this book will strengthen your faith and walk with God, but also ground you solidly in your faith. If you are a strong believer this book will give you even more confidence in the faith, and confidence to share your faith and converse intelligently.
Regardless of where you stand this book will CHANGE YOUR LIFE! Read the book; there is Evidence That DEMANDS A Verdict!
John Appleby5 Stars Out Of 5this was the beginning for my love for apologeticsOctober 3, 2017John ApplebyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a book that I have been waiting for. I remember checking out the prior editions from the library at my local church about ten years ago. This was the beginning of my love for apologetics. Never purchased a copy until this one. I was fortunate enough to be on the book launch team and had an advanced PDF file of this book. As far as resources go this is a good one. The book is an update of the prior editions and has some new information as well. I like how the chapters and sections are organized in this book. I am a bit biased as I have seen both Josh and Sean McDowell and have heard them speak at a few conferences that I have attended. I trust them in the research and arguments that they put forth in the defense of the Christian faith. Whether this book will please everyone or not probably not. There are some that may think is too light biblically speaking but others, like myself will say there is enough material in this book to seek out how to defend your Christian faith. Sean McDowell's dissertation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary was on what happened to the Apostles. I was looking forward to this particular topic located at (Chapter 13). One good thing about this book is that as far as references go you have a lot of good information to take from this book. I am very glad to have it in my library.
CindyCaliforniaAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Must ReadOctober 3, 2017CindyCaliforniaAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0it was amazing
Excellent apologetics book. Do you know how to defend your faith? How we came to get the Bible? What evidence there is to prove the Bible is accurate? This and MANY more issues are covered in this book. It is HUGE, at almost 800 pages. It's not light reading. It takes time to sit and read this and digest the information.
It's sure to become to go to book in many libraries. I highly recommend it.
I received an advance copy for free for my honest review of this book

Jim5 Stars Out Of 5Evidence that Demands a Verdict, 4th EditionOctober 2, 2017JimQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In the early 1970s I wore out the first edition of Evidence that Demands a Verdict validating in college what I came to believe as a child. At that time, ones concept of truth (or true truth as one writer called it) was based on what was logically sound and how it squared with reality and the physically observable universe. However, today the focus is no longer on demonstrable truth, but on how a claim allegedly makes the listener feel; intolerance and bigotry are the objections commonly raised when the gospel message is presented.
This fourth edition contains much, if not all, of the first edition but there is much new material: the first-hand account of one of the authors tells of the power of a changed life because of taking God at His word and honestly acting upon it. He shares his life story with great honesty, candidness and vulnerability. Additional documentation is provided regarding more recent archaeological findings and the historical evidence for Old Testament characters and events. The final six chapters address the nature and validity of truth as well as answers to objections by postmodernists and skeptics.
The fourth edition of Evidence that Demands a Verdict will prove to be a valuable resource for the Christian as well as the honest seeker of the truth of the claims of the person and work of Jesus the Christ.
