Best book I've read in years. Love this author. He goes after the critics directly and offers a wonderful and pure view of Christianity. If you're searching for God, if you're a believer looking to strengthen your faith, or if you simply want to know more about the Bible or the life of Christ, this book is for you. He brilliantly challenges the skepticism facing Christianity, from God's creation of the Earth to the miracles and life of Jesus. This book is worth your time and money, it will get you thinking about the presence of God in your life and hopefully, as it did for me, reaffirm your faith and help you realize that God is out there and He loves us all. God bless, hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
I enjoyed the broad variety of topics covered, especially the historical discussions.
No. The content was such that it inspired you to think and ponder what the author said or asserted.
A worthwhile read for those of strong faith, those who are questioning their faith and even those who are not of any faith but are curious and would listen with an open mind, to be convinced or not convinced--not through Scripture, but through logic and what noted atheists have to say on the various topics discussed.
This is a master work, carefully crafted to illuminate not only Christianity but its role in the foundation of Western Civilization. This is not a piece designed to convert but rather to inform and D'Souza does this well, combining academic rigor with accessible language. Best listened to over several days to let everything sink in. A worthy investment.
As a believer and a scientist, I was deeply disappointed with this book. I can only comment on the first portion of it, since I could only take so much of his erroneous 'reasoning' before putting it down for good partway through.
In my opinion: the author either has a very poor grasp of modern evolutionary theory, or is intentionally misrepresenting it to make it easier to make his argument against it. Because he fails to grasp his 'opponents' arguments, his own defense is flawed and weak and will do little to assist anyone interested in debating a real scientist.
Perhaps it got better at the end, but this type of shoddy workmanship is not what makes Christianity Great. Fortunately, Christianity is great despite its many flawed adherents - because it relies on the ultimate truth of God.
This work challenged and equipped me in better understanding and sharing my faith in God. I highly recommend it to all Christians who are better looking to equip themselves. And to the atheist that is searching, this book will, I think, help answer many questions you might have about the existence of a higher being and the universe.
The fact that it is reasonable. educational and very entertaining.
What's so Great About America; by Denish DeSouza. I'm glad he is not afraid to look at his subjects from both sides of the argument, and present a point of view that is logical, factual, and believable.
He seems to read the book with the heart and tone the author intended.
Comparing a commitment to Christ to a commitment to a spouse, and that it takes facts, experience, emotion and faith to move forward into a marriage commitment. We commit to these relationships because we hope that our decision will bring the highest form of happiness, peace and security to our lives.
This is a book for the times we live in; it's a book for anyone who wants to know the truth about Christianity especially in a world that is skeptical at best and hostile at worst on the subject.
Yes, I plan on listening to this book again and again. It provides the solid foundation that I needed to explain to others why I believe instead of just what I believe.
Dinesh's books build on each other; approaching multiple topics from different angles, yet always leading back to logic and God.
Jeff is an excellent narrator. I find him easy to listen to for the entire book.
No. I personally need to stop and digest the book in small segments, sometimes repeating a section or chapter before moving on.
This book gave me a chance to set my own beliefs on a firmer foundation, share what I believe and why with others, and worship my God in a more meaningful way.
As a Christian, the book helped strengthen my faith in Christ and in the claims of the Christian faith. I think the strongest aspect of the book will be the clear and logical presentations by the author that will lead an honest inquirer to faithfully wrestle with the truth claims presented. I rate it as one of the top apologetic books in recent times.
