After having this book for a week, I was beginning to wonder if I was going to have anything to say about it. That’s not, as you may think, that there is nothing to say about it; rather, it’s because the book was quietly lifted from my possession by my oldest son so that he could read it first. A preacher-in-training, he gives it his hearty approval.
When I sat down to read it, I saw why.
The Defender’s Guide for Life’s Toughest Questions is based on questions presented to Christians by those who don’t know God; more specifically, they are questions raised by atheists. Mr. Comfort has taken their questions and provided biblical answers so that if you are ever confronted by these issues, you will know how to respond.
One criticism that I’ve read about this book is that the answers aren’t in-depth enough. I don’t find that to be so. Please remember that Mr. Comfort is answering many different questions on a broad range of subjects in a limited amount of space; I believe that he has succeeded at what he set out to do. At any rate, this book is a starting place. If you need more information than he was able to provide here in the space he had available, you can always do more research.
Christians are called by the Lord to be prepared to give an answer to those who would ask us about our faith, our hope; Ray Comfort has done some of the work for you (at least on some of the questions you will face). Read this book and be prepared. Read it and be blessed.
I was provided with a free copy of this book by New Leaf Publishing for purposes of review; I was not required to give a positive review, simply an honest one.
