Not the entire book

The reading is great done by the orginal author's son.
The major problem with this is it is only parts of whole book. I got this with the intention of following along in my book. There are a lot of good missing details and some misread words.

If I had no intention of having a physical or digital copy of this book it would be fine, but it is differwnt from the actual book itself.

Pretty good

Great, convincing yet simple book on apologetics. I feel like the narrator is too young and Millennial sounding, which makes the reading lack gravity.

Inspirational

Loved how Josh McDowell brought his book "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" into this condensed format. Something I will read again and again to better equip myself to answer questions about the validity of Christ, His life and resurrection.

A Truthful Discovery!

Amazing book! A wonderful discovery for genuine truth-seekers. Josh McDowell has done the research for us proving Jesus Christ is who he claimed to be.

Tried to honestly listen to this book...

Wow, could not listen to this book for longer than 30mins...it is basing much of "facts" on the Bible. I take the Bible for what it is, a popular account of stories, beliefs, and recollections of events that happened more than 2000 years ago. It is written by humans and translated many times. Is there useful information in the Bible, sure, there is also a lot of fantasy and symbolism that (depending on one's beliefs) are considered "factual" or "absolutely correct." Unfortunately, anyone who believes that the Bible is "fact" will immediately say this book is amazing and "true" which just props up their beliefs. Turns out "truth" is defined as "that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality" and "a fact or belief that is accepted as true". The very problem is the definition of truth...it uses the words "acceptance" and "accordance" which implies "not universal in nature" or "indisputable." Faith is not fact, it is the belief in something (whether factual or not.) Just because you have faith does not make it true for others, faith is personal. I'm not disputing whether Jesus existed or not, I just don't believe that the Bible should be the definitive litmus test for the claims...it is one source. I am spiritual, but I am cautious about relying on one book (The Bible) for all religious meaning. Wars have been fought and children have been exploited in "the name of god"...we should always seek to question why we believe in anything, we may never had a choice in what we believe.

Essential

I recommend everyone take an hour and listen to this narrative. It is a logical and poignant reasoning of the reality of Jesus.

Powerful

This book was powerful. It's part testimony, part research. The truth that the author found after researching the Bible, its claims, and its authenticity was laid out really well in this book. The testimony of the change it made in the authors life was powerful. I really enjoyed this one and got some good life notes out of it.

Great Read, highly informative and Engaging.

I'd recommend this for every Christian and Non Christian.
For Christians there is enough bitesize information yo affirm your faithful and aid you when evangelising to atheists and theists of other faiths.

for the atheists this will get you started on evidence that Christ is who he says he is

OK

This is a good book for someone who wants to accept Christianity but still looking for evidence. However, I find the evidence discussed here is a bit lame. The historical "evidence" here depends on the number of texts that support Christianity without validating the reliability of these texts and on a large number of prophecies that we cannot be sure if they were written before or after Jesus.
It is still a good book, trying its best to convince people of the undeniable evidence that it claims exists, while if you want to think objectively and not let yourself taken by the authors verbal excellency, you'll find the evidence as good as that of other religions (I'm trying not to name one). Atheists on the other side do not claim -as far as I know- that science is on their side as the author believes, but they rather refuse religion as an explanation and simply confess that they do not know.
