Truly a unique work that's not only comprehensive but easy to read. Geisler and Turek have written the only book that builds the case for Christianity from the ground up! Challenging for skeptics, engaging for seekers, and affirming for Christians. Foreword by David Limbaugh. Endorsed by Lee Strobel, Josh McDowell, Ravi Zacharias, Hank Hanegraaff, Phillip Johnson, Bill Dembski, Cal Thomas and others.
To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.
Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.
Here is a Five Star review on Amazon.com from an Atheist:
Having read quite a few Christian apologetics books, I feel I can say that this one is by far the best in scope, logic, and wit. The authors convincingly build up their case in layers, starting with well-reasoned arguments why God exists, and building in stages as to why Jesus is the way to go, once everything else is accepted.
The authors include run-ins they've had with professors and debate opponents, making for an interesting read. The appendixes, which feature a mock dialogue between a Christian and an atheist, are entertaining. The book covers all the important issues that this topic entails, from cosmology, life origins, evolution, morality, and a defense of the Bible.
No honest atheist can read this book without being impressed by the quality of the theistic arguments as presented by the authors. The objections of skeptics are confronted with confidence. Did it change my mind? It may have planted a seed.
I highly recommend this book to both atheists and Christians, and to anyone else interested in this topic. It is VERY convincing. These guys know their stuff.

I liked the book "I Don't Have Enough Faith to be an Atheist" so much, I have given copies to several friends. I also liked it enough that I bought the cds to listen to while driving. I had given the book to a friend in NB last fall. He said it had changed his life. He is 75 years old. So I sent him a set of the cds. He said he is going to insist that his sons listen to them.
I think the apologetic approach is very useful to those who like or work in science.

I have listened to the first chapter over two times so far - there is so much there to learn! I appreciate the scholarship and easy communication of these two authors.

This book is the most complete book on this subject that I have seen yet. It covers everything. Atheist and believers alike would benefit from this book and are sure to learn plenty. One cannot study apologetics without having this book. It also does a great job of creating a bridge from the academic world to the real world.
