Publisher's Summary

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.

Since that time, Evidence has remained a trusted resource for believers young and old. Bringing historical documentation and the best modern scholarship to bear on the trustworthiness of the Bible and its teachings, this extensive volume has encouraged and strengthened millions.

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 and doesn't shy away from the tough questions.

  • Thoroughly revised and updated from the previous edition
  • Now coauthored by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell
  • All-new chapters defending against the latest attacks from Christianity's critics
  • Designed to be a go-to reference for even the toughest questions
  • Offers thoughtful responses to the Bible's most difficult and extraordinary passages
  • Expansive defense of Christianity's core truths, including the resurrection of Jesus Christ

Lexicons aren't best suited for Audible

At least there's heaps of chapters in here, so it's somewhat easy to navigate, but this book is definitely best suited for having in print. Lists of Bible references, references to other chapters and the general layout seems to be designed as a resource to look up, when in need.

The general flow is what separates the book from a lexicon, because there's a storyline, a progression, instead of a list.

I was negative to the title before finishing it, because of the cheesy title, but it turned out to be a very serious book, self-aware and strong. I love that they often do not overstate the case, and rather leave the case open, and that they even encourage to read criticism of their own book. That's a healthy way to go forward.

The material in itself is simply very good.

A gift of God

My review title is not an overstatement. As an Apologist myself, I have been in dialogue, recently, with the atheist community. As a result, I compiled a list of "hot" issues to research. Low and behold, this new revision of ETDV contains exactly the list of topics I compiled! The Lord is listening to the questions and doubts of unbelievers and is calling His people to respond with the answers 1 Peter 3:15. This truly amazes me! God still honors the "Doubting Thomas" and offers them a touch of the evidence that truly demands a positive verdict.

This isn't great as an audio book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is interesting and I would like to read it in hard copy, it's just not an easy one to listen to and follow.

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

When I first started listening I was really wondering if the author was a talk-to-text, he reads very unevenly and dryly. I mean, I know it's not a story book, but blah. It's painful. There is a part in the book he goes "zero zero zero, zero zero zero, zero zero zero" and it's as close as an actual person could get to text-to-talk.

What character would you cut from Evidence That Demands a Verdict?

The narrator

very good

the audio version is great if you just want to cover all of the material but I would recommend getting the paper copy as it would be an excellent reference book for challenges or curiosity. and the paper copies not too expensive either.

Apologetics standard.

Wow. It covered basically EVERY apologetics subject in detail. Josh McDowell is a madman! Strongly recommended.

A gold mine of christian apologetics

The revised version is great as it adapts to modern society. It is worth listening too. The only thing that i found that needs attention is that the chapters have no titles to guide you.

great document that arms believers against the ske

plan to listen multiple times to get the most out of it because of the fact that this book is full of relevant information for our times.
