Why another book? Because it is my opinion that while we can get a three-hundred-page book on one Christian theological concept, we cannot get a simple book in approximately 150 pages that adequately covers the “what/why/how” Christianity is true. Similarly biblical literacy and understanding continues to fall. The following quote summarize our current plight:

“Many high school seniors believe that Sodom and Gomorrah were husband and wife, while a majority of Americans cannot name one of the four Gospels. Jay Leno asked his Tonight Show audience one night to name one of Jesus’ twelve apostles; they came up empty. One in ten Americans believes that Joan of Arc was Noah’s wife, and only one-third knows that Jesus (not Billy Graham) preached the Sermon on the Mount.” - Washington Monthly

I believe this adequately sums up our current situation in the West and why we must revisit with believer and non-believer alike what it truly means to be a Christ follower today. In this book James Stroud (MA History; BA Philosophy) not only breaks down why God must exist in easy to follow terminology, but why the Christian concept of God provides the most coherent answer to who this God is. This is a very good introductory book for those wanting an overview of the Bible and apologetics in layman’s terms and how to better understand why Christianity is more plausible today than ever.
