    “Christian Apologetics” by Douglas Groothuis is a great read on Christian apologetics and for anyone wanting to learn more about the Christian faith. A very comprehensive read (over 800 pages), the title addresses several topics:

    – Overview of the Christian worldview.

    – The importance of truth in a postmodern world.

    – Monotheism.

    – Description of Darwinianism.

    – The uniqueness of humanity.

    – Theism.

    – Evidence for the existence of God (creation, morality, experience, conscience, etc.).

    – Jesus’ claims.

    – The truths of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.

    – The church.

    After looking through enough of this title, here’s what to like:

    – Extremely comprehensive (covers a BUNCH of topics on the subject).

    – Excellent organization and good flow from chapter to chapter and topic to topic.

    – Good writing style.

    – Helpful bibliography.

    – Comprehensive Name/Subject/Scripture index.

    Very good read for the Christian believer interested in Christian apologetics or the unbeliever wanting to learn more about the Christian faith. Recommended. I was given a review copy by IVP in exchange for a fair review and appreciate the opportunity.
