Divided into five different sections: Humanity, the Bible, Science, Philosophy, and Religion.  Ray Comfort answers questions from atheists base on Biblical truths.

This book has been written to help equip Christians who may not have an answer when confronted by those who question their faith.

In this book you will learn the answers to questions/statements such as:

  • “Evolution proves there is no need for God’s existence.”
  • “I’ve tried to praying, and it doesn’t work!”
  • “Do you ever doubt the existence of God?  And if so, why?”
  • “Do you really believe the Holocaust was God’s punishment of the Jews?”

About the author- Ray Comfort has written more than 70 books and is a co-host with Kirk Cameron.  His blog, Atheist Central, is where he answers questions from atheists.

My thoughts- I was very interested to see what Ray Comfort had to say in this book.  I have seen him on his show with Kirk Cameron and I was not impressed.  I couldn’t wait to read this book to see if my opinion of him could be changed.

Unfortunately, I was unable to enjoy this book.  I thought the questions were very good, but I felt that Ray Comfort failed to completely answer many of the questions.  Most of the time it seemed as if he completely avoided the question.

Once in chapter three he said he was impressed by Charles Darwin and later in the chapter he said Charles Darwin was a raving man.  It was only when I looked back at the two different passages that I discovered that the first time he was being sarcastic.  I would think it may be difficult for some people to realize the sarcasm unless they were really studying this book. 

I would not recommend this book.  If you want to be able to defend Christianity, it would be best to just study the Bible, so you would know exactly what to say.  There is also no harm in telling the person that you need to find the answer and you would get back to them.
