Amen!

I became a Christian 39 years ago after reading this book and it’s still as magical now as it was then! Thank you Josh McDowell for being the catalyst in making me a believer in Christ.

Very powerful book on defending Christianity.

This is a short but clear explanation on defending our Christian HOPE. I recommend it to any one who is a believer struggling to explain our message. I think that seasoned Christians could learn from this little book to. Beautiful and the narrator does a fantastic job.

Read the book instead...

Content is good. The voice of the reader is very hard for me to listen to compared to most Audible recordings. Just my opinion, but it would have served the customer better to employ a profession reader rather than just throw your son some work. The younger McDowell sounds like an excited adolescent and reads faster than necessary. Again ,just my opinion.

seeking evidence for christianity

i am so thankful for mcdowell's work. i think every christian needs to hear and understand the evidence for why we believe in bible. i do wish he would go into more details in some of the chapters.

Very informative. I helped to be ready to give an answer those or without.

I Thank God for my brothers who took the time to research because I just don’t have the time to do it. Thank you he referenced others who have researched even more in depth for decades. I really appreciate it being a mother of three I just don’t have the time to research to that extent.

Skips a lot of words. Not Good

This book was beautiful but the speaker or narrator skipped a lot of words and I couldn’t find which page the speaker was on. It was inconvenient but the book was wonderful. Don’t buy this with audible. It is better to read the book to yourself.

Great Read, highly informative and Engaging.

I'd recommend this for every Christian and Non Christian.
For Christians there is enough bitesize information yo affirm your faithful and aid you when evangelising to atheists and theists of other faiths.

for the atheists this will get you started on evidence that Christ is who he says he is

OK

This is a good book for someone who wants to accept Christianity but still looking for evidence. However, I find the evidence discussed here is a bit lame. The historical "evidence" here depends on the number of texts that support Christianity without validating the reliability of these texts and on a large number of prophecies that we cannot be sure if they were written before or after Jesus.
It is still a good book, trying its best to convince people of the undeniable evidence that it claims exists, while if you want to think objectively and not let yourself taken by the authors verbal excellency, you'll find the evidence as good as that of other religions (I'm trying not to name one). Atheists on the other side do not claim -as far as I know- that science is on their side as the author believes, but they rather refuse religion as an explanation and simply confess that they do not know.
