The modern apologetics classic that started it all is now completely revised and updated - because the truth of the Bible doesn't change, but its critics do. With the original Evidence That Demands a Verdict, best-selling author Josh McDowell gave Christian audiences the answers they needed to defend their faith against the harshest critics and skeptics. Now, with his son Sean McDowell, Josh McDowell has updated and expanded this classic resource for a new generation. This is a book that invites listeners to bring their doubts.

The information in this book does demand a verdict. Though at times the facts became dry, the content has been thoroughly researched and academically given. What I like most is the authors do not only give evidence for their arguments, but gives the rebuttal as well. Great information for anyone interested in winning a skeptic or building faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?

The reading and commentary concerning the 10 Commandments should bring conviction to any listener. The reader put very little expression in the reading, to keep the opinions bias, but it could not be helped to here the cry of the author concerning the lost heart to keep the commandments of the Lord. The author has a slight liberal view of the keeping of the commandments, yet holds to the conviction of the commandments being more than a humanitarian effort to be kind to others.
It is refreshing to hear a modern day interpretation of God's commands retaining the holiness of God. Jesus said...If you love Me keep My commandments. Jesus is God in the flesh.

Discipleship lies at the center of Christian life and practice. It is a beautiful journey, in which each of us simultaneously attempt to become more like Christ and to help others do the same. It is our most important task on earth, but often it is neglected or misunderstood. A. W. Tozer, on the other hand, knew exactly what it meant to disciple and to be discipled. Discipleship: What It Truly Means to Be a Christian is a collection of Tozer’s powerful and passionate message on discipleship.

Tozer has great insight into what it means to be holy and the need to disciple appropriately. One of many comments was concerning the church who does not teach holiness is more of a lodge with membership than a church with God's people. Another sticking comment was if we were to hate sin (be holy), we would live hated. Great listen or read. was hard not to listen to in one sitting.

Thomas Watson was one of the most famous Puritan preachers in history, and his 17th-century writings are still read across the world today. A highly influential example of Puritan writing, The Great Gain of Godliness is Watson's study of Malachi 3:16-18. British Baptist preacher Charles Spurgeon bemoaned the fact that he couldn't find a copy of The Great Gain of Godliness.

The narrator was precise and articulate. The story is about being holy because He is holy. Excellent teaching. Got only 4 stars because I do not believe in limited atonement, which is not a thread throughout. Jesus blood atoned for all who will receive Him. One thing I did like is the concept of if one is not living holy, they are not a child of God, not easy believism. Not by works either, If you love Him, He keeps the commandments in your mortal body.

To present an example of intentional, faithful, and passionate Christian living, Dr. Steven J. Lawson paints a portrait of 18th-century pastor and theologian Jonathan Edwards, who structured his relationship with God by composing and following 70 heart-searching resolutions. Edwards, often remembered for his sermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God, is revealed here as a man with a heart for God's glory above all things.

I love to hear the life of holy men of God who themselves have seen their own inadequacy. Edwards seems to live by the passage take the own log out of your eye before you take the splinter out of another's. His desire seems to be the freedom of those who walk in Christ.
This read is a must for those desiring to walk as Christ walk and to be a witness to a world that needs a Savior.
What I liked the most was Edwards drive to love others as Christ loved him.

Early in the 16th century, legislative decree in England controlled people's access to the scriptures and prohibited an English Bible. But theologian and linguist William Tyndale was determined to provide his fellow countrymen with scripture they could read. In The Daring Mission of William Tyndale, the latest addition to the Long Line of Godly Men series, Dr. Steven J. Lawson traces this daring mission, which was ultimately used by God to ignite the English Reformation and would cost Tyndale his life.

The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs is a classic work featuring clear and simple instructions on how to be content as a Christian. Burroughs will teach you that contentment lies in subtraction, not addition; that the workings of Christianity are nothing like what you thought them to be; and that once you have learned the way from Christ's word, you will be able to attain contentment as you never before imagined.

In a world that will not tolerate the mention of sin, and in churches where it has been defined only in generic, sociological terms, one could make a good case could that repentance is one of the least used words in the English language today. Repentance is essential to true Christianity - Jesus Christ himself said that if we do not repent, we will perish - and there are few better guides that have existed in this or any other area of spiritual experience than Thomas Watson.

Beginning with the story of Stephen from the book of Acts, considered the first Christian martyr, the drama builds to the passion of the early Church's persecution under the Roman Empire. The hardy and radical faith of those first believers spawned medieval missionary movements that spread the gospel across Europe and into England, Scotland, and Ireland. As the story continues, it places a significant emphasis on the sufferings of the early Protestants during the Reformation.
