    As handy as a shirt pocket...

    With the opening of the Passion of the Christ, Christians either have had or will be called upon to answer questions about what they believe and why. At least at some point in time, most of us have been faced with either pleading the fifth or having to defend their faith by 'well, it's in the Bible and I believe it.' Unfortunately, that does not really answer the question. ......................... Hank Hannegraff has made a career of handling the questions people have about Christianity, and giving better answers than it's true because that's what I believe. Christians who buy and read this book will have the equivalent of a question and answer episode of the Bible Answer Man program in their shirt pocket or purse. It's small size will make it easy to carry for handy reference, and the bite sized answers cover a wide range of topics. Some seem a bit simplistic, others are more relevant and thought provoking. Each section is thoroughly cross referenced to books and articles that will help the reader go into more detail. ....................... **** This book may not answer every question a Christian might find themsevles confronted by, but it's a start. As an aside, the photography that illustrates the Bible Answer Book is gorgeous and would be frameworthy if it were larger. ****

    Common questions

    As a christian I found this book to be an excellent resource for commonly asked questions related to the bible. The bible is a perfect book inspired by God. Our creator never changes and his word to us is as applicable today as it was thousands of years ago. In it we find only "truths". Man attempts to dispute and doubt it often. Hank is a dedicated gifted servant of God. He is using his gift based on God's word and "truths". I am thankful for this resource and for Hanks dedication to fulfill "The Great Commission".
