I admit that I have not read through the entire handbook but I have looked at certain sections. I liked the section on the Resurrection because it debunks some of the common arguments against the Resurrection but I was let down by the section on Creation and Evolution. I was hoping for some arguments for creation against evolution but there is nothing like that. Instead it doesn't take a stance against evolution and proposes how evolution could of been used in creation or God could of just created us as we are. The book states that the only thing that can't evolve is the soul. I don't believe in evolution so this section was a let down. There are plenty arguments against evolution and I was hoping to have at least some of them in this handbook.

LOVE this book! It's compact and easy to transport; very handy for reading during breaks and lunch time at work. It's actually stimulated conversation on the topic with co-workers (and non-believers). I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND this book to all who would give an account of what and why we believe!

This book gave some new ways to defend the faith we Christians share. Though I disagree on the presentation of evolution and feel they did NOT take a clear stance, the rest of the book was excellent.

This is an easy-to-read, step-by-step explanation of the Christian faith. Explains alternative points of view and why we can believe that Jesus Christ is truly real and truly Lord. You need to know what you believe and why you believe it (faith is NOT blind); you need this book.
