I downloaded several of Less Strobel's books and all are good, but this is by far the best! He really tackles the toughest questions facing a Christian (or skeptic or unbeliever) and digs up some very good answers. If you only read one of Lee Strobel's books, this is the one I recommend!
This is not a layman's introduction to apologetics. This is a very technical textbook for graduate level philosophy students. At least, that's what it seemed like to me. I am not a stupid person, but I was lost through much of this. This is not the first apologetics book I've read/listened to, but this was the most difficult. I haven't finished it yet and I'm not sure I will. Very advanced and uses highly technical language. I would only recommend this only if you have a firm foundation of philosophy and logic.
John is serious about many things but has a great sense of humor that makes this a joy to listen to and packed with wonderful lessons. I highly recommend this book. It isn't a one-size-fits-all, feel-good book. Practical and entertaining. He helps you find God using examples both sublime and ridiculous, from Michelangelo to Where's Waldo to a 2 1/2 year old child. If you listen to this and don't learn something, you weren't listening!
This is a great book. One thing to be aware of is that they have the tags wrong and this shows here that it is written and read by John Ortberg; when I downloaded it, it shows the author is Thomas C Oden and the narrator is John Ortberg; the truth is that it was written by John Ortberg and narrated by Thomas Oden. It's not a big deal to me, but it is somthing I wish they would correct.
As for the book itself, John is serious about many things but has a great sense of humor that makes this a joy to listen to and packed with wonderful lessons. I highly recommend this book. It isn't a one-size-fits-all, feel-good book. Practical and entertaining. Be the person God wants you to be.
