    same old same old

    This book seriously reads like the author has never stuck his head out of a fundamentalist church. When writing books "challenging skeptics", you would think the author would at least educate themselves on the information already out there. This isn't challenging skeptics, it's patting other Christians on the back.

    Standard christian claptrap

    No offense to the author, who is entitled to his beliefs. This book offers nothing new to the non-believer. It trots out the same arguments, uses the same misrepresentations of evolution and athiests etc. Basically it's a book for christians written by a christian offering nothing substansive, but written very well.

    Awesome read!

    This is one of the best books I've read in years and the only biblical type of book I have read from front to back in 2 days. The ease and flow of Mr. Copland's writing style helps you stay glued to the pages and wanting more. I am going to read this again this weekend as it is this good. All adversities and negativism to Jesus have been met with clear, concise and indisputable supporting facts. But what really makes this a great read is the style of writing which is easy on the mind, you don't have to sit there trying to figure out what he is saying to us.

    Nothing useful

    I only gave this drivel one star to drag down its aggregate rating. There is nothing new or worthwhile here. Just the usual straw man and red herring logical fallacies. All the assertions of this so-called 'author' have been made (and disproven) by theologians and/ or scientists of far more intelligence, discernment, and talent than this rube.

    I couldn't even get through the first 'argument' without finding several skewed views towards atheism.

    I expected better, and shouldn't have.

    This book could have been good. Sadly, the author appears to have avoided even the slightest bit of research or fact-checking. I looked forward to reading this, but was so astonishingly disappointed at the ignorance displayed in the first few chapters that it took me a considerable amount of time before I was able to steel myself enough to brave its vapid meanderings.

    Time for truth by Steve Copland

    I was very surprised with this story in that I learned so much more than I ever expected. I will read it again maybe several times. And I thought I liked mary Magdaline!

    I didn't find in this book anything new. The author tells us his opinion without any reasonable explanations. Maybe somebody like books like "Time for Truth: A Challenge to Skeptics". But, in my opinion there a lot of intresting books about inspiration. I like new authors, because they are unpredictable like Anatoliy Obraztsov with "A crossing or the drop's history". And I wait for sometning new, intresting from experienced authors... in this book I didn't get it

    Honesty first!

    At a very young and highly imppresionale age, I was sent to sunday school where I was taught (told) about God and Jesus.
    As I grew older, I started questioning these teachings. I was being taught things I could no accept such as racism, inequality for women, and secular behavior "outs was the only true religion, anyone that was not an active perticpant and believer would certainly go to hell."
    This situation caused me extreme stress! So, I started my search. After a few years, I figured out that I had to be honest with myself. I had to overcome my fear of God and the notion that if I asked questions, i was not committing blasphamy! I realized that I didn't know what I truly beleved! I found that in tha process of figuring out who I was, I also became aware that the most important principle God would expect from me would be integrity. Ii lost my fear of God. It was not only okay to be agnostic, it was the right and honest thing to do. This opened my mind to constructive thinking. If you truly want to search for the truth, I highly recommend this approach.
    Fear is the enemy; respect is your friend. WMK

    Highly Recommended

    After reading some of the reviews on here one wonders if the writers read this book to the end. Obviously a seriously contentious topic as one can see by the ratings.

    Copland uses simple yet profound arguments which no atheist or negative reviewer has dared to challenge or contradict. If one is going to criticize a book of this nature, at least have the guts to try and prove the author wrong. This book begins with seven basic yet compelling arguments for the existence of God, goes on to speak about Creation, the problems of evil and suffering, and then takes the reader on a journey of Biblical history.

    The list of prophecies about the birth, life, death and resurrrection of Christ and archaeological evidences mentioned throughout are arguments which none are daring to contradict in these reviews.

    This book is highly recommended as a gift to anyone seeking answers to life's questions. it takes the readers hand and walks through many of the contradictions about macro-evolution, deals with the absurdity of atheism, and then introduces the reader to a path towards existential truth.

    I couldn't get past some first bits of this book because of the blatant ignorance and disregard for actual truth. It's all a bunch of mindless self-indulgent crap in order to make himself feel above those without faith.

    Decent

    I really liked some of Copland's other books, but this is more of a supported opinion book. It's fairly long, and sometimes dry, but I did find a couple portions eye opening. I would recommend it for someone is researching the Bible and today's society.
