"The Defender's Guide for Life's Toughest Questions" by 'Ray Comfort' from Master Books is an interesting book on apologetics. This book is written in a conversational style and it deals with topics such as: ? Humanity: Rights and Suffering ? The Bible: Biblical and Theological Issues ? Science: Scientific Thought and Evolution ? Philosophy: Beliefs and Worldviews ? Religion: God and Atheism Ray does a fabulous work of answering some tough questions that are thrown at Bible believing Christians by atheists. His style makes the readers think and ponder over answers written by him. There is no single defined pattern of answering the questions. Ray's style of answering differs with each and every question. And, this works to his advantage. Ray scores in many areas and ducks at some others. The book is good in bits and pieces. Particularly I enjoyed his answers to the questions like -- ? Are you afraid of dying? ? Are you honestly affirming the case that all the ingredients to produce life were present on earth before life existed? However, while answering a question on evolution, he goes to the extent of quoting that "the American public school system is a failure." (pp81). Here, rather than dealing with the subject of evolution, he fluctuates to the different issue altogether in his answer. Anyone fond of apologetics could give it a try. We will gain some insights on how to answer some sheepish questions fielded at believers like us by so called 'atheists'. May not be the Ray Comfort's best but worth a read. I would give this one three out of five stars. Please note that I received this book from New Leaf Publishing Group through its book review bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. Also be informed that the opinions I have expressed are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
Being a biblical christian, i have been asked these questions myself. This book is useful in the fact that it addresses real issues people deal with, and not taking you in philosophical circles. He always ends with the same conclusion that the bible gives. Man is not good, we deserve punishment, but God in His mercy made a way for us. Before following God, i was a perverted, selfish jerk. I only cared for my self. On top of that i was self righteous, i was so blind i thought i was this great guy even in the midst of my wicked lifestyle. I am so glad He extended His mercy to me. He showed me the truth about myself and gave me a desire and power to change.
