Series: Coffee House Chronicles
With over 40 million books sold, bestselling author Josh McDowell is no stranger to creatively presenting biblical truth. Now, partnering with fellow apologist Dave Sterrett, Josh introduces a new series targeted at the intersection of story and truth.
The Coffee House Chronicles are short, easily devoured novellas aimed at answering prevalent spiritual questions. Each book in the series tackles a long-contested question of the faith, and then answer these questions with truth through relationships and dialogue in each story.
In Is the Bible True, Really?: A Dialogue on Skepticism, Evidence, and Truth, we meet Nick, a college freshman at a state school in Texas. Nick has his spiritual world turned upside-down with what he hears in an introduction to religion class. His questions turn into conversations as he dialogues with professors, friends, and family about the authenticity and authority of the Bible.
The other two books in the series: Who is Jesus, Really? and Did the Resurrection Happen, Really? continue the unfolding story at the college campus and the coffee house down the road.
DAVE STERRETT is a conference speaker and writer for a movement called I am Second. Along with ministering in churches, high schools, and college campuses, Dave serves as an adjunct professor of New Testament, Philosophy and Apologetics at Liberty University. In addition to the three book series, Coffee House Chronicles, Dave is the author of Why Trust Jesus? (Moody Publishers) and co-author of the book, "O" God, A Dialogue on Truth and Oprah's Spirituality.

I was kind of worried though in reading.

Mark HallAge: 45-54Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5It's OKJuly 27, 2011Mark HallAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2This review is for the electronic version. As with most e-books I buy, this one has some formatting issues. The formatting problems aren't significant enough to make the book unreadable, but they are distracting.
As for content, it's ok. I would not recommend this text to a well-founded believer. However, for those who are new to the faith, those who are searching, or those who are returning to the faith, this is a good quick read. It provides a good review of why we can have faith in the Bible. It does so without becoming overly academic or overly theological.

While many apologetic writings respond to questions regarding the canon, accuracy of manuscripts, number of copies available, etc., Sterrett and McDowell address other important elements (e.g., the accusation that biblical writers plagiarized from pagan mythology). I highly recommend this book!
