The goal of God’s Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty is straightforward: to help listeners develop "a faith that is real and credible - and strong enough to help others find faith in God." To that end, Rice Broocks outlines a roadmap that guides seekers to acknowledge the most basic truths of Christianity:
Persuasive arguments crafted with tools borrowed from logic, science, and philosophy, as well as scripture, solidify the faith of the Christian listeners and provide starting points for discussions with skeptics. With clear, easy-to-follow explanations of key concepts and controversies, God’s Not Dead is apologetics for the 21st century, presented in layman’s terms. Listeners will be empowered not only to talk about their own faith with confidence but to lead others to a relationship with Jesus.

Personally I would recommend this book to anyone but even more so to those who struggle with their faith and/or don't believe there's a God at all. This is an awesome audiobook for those who believe in God but still have a lot of unanswered questions in their mind. And if you enjoy discussing theological history or principles with others this book will give you clear definitive answers to any question concerning the existence of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. I've gone through the Bible from beginning to end at least a half-dozen times and at first it was intimidating and at times difficult to understand however the more I studied the more God touched my heart making it easier to understand. If you have seen the movie God is Not Dead don't be confused and think that this is merely the movie in print because as good as the movie was this book goes into much more depth and I guarantee it will strengthen your faith and help you to understand the word of God, creation and how to build your own relationship with God. I look forward to reading many more reviews of this book. May God bless you all.
Rice Broocks is part of the Maranatha ministries. Let's just say it's considered a cult. He goes to colleges to influence people to convert to this style of learning about God, as in this book. Some agree, I do not. I wanted to listen to this to see what he had to say because I deal with Atheists here in Utah on a daily regarding fighting for my right to say I'm a Christian without being put down. He does a wonderful job with the facts, I have to say, that is why I was intrigued. But I cannot get behind his ministry. I prefer a Community to praise God and love one another. Not a following.
"A sound & comprehensive presentation of the gospel"
I recommend this book to all those who have deep feeling that they know the truth of the Christian gospel is objectively true. And for those who need to sharpen their arguments.
