I tried to like this book. I took the time to read every chapter in it but I found that I was drowning in it. I read it again just to see if I could take notes and I was disappointed. Instead of teaching me new things it made me wonder at many parts. This book was to modern for me. I did not like some of the questions What enables some to survive as Christians when so many others have faltered? This left one hanging instead of telling answers. instead of showing that the person who left was not saved it lead one to believe the person was just back sliding.
But on the other hand I could appreciate some things about the book . There are good topics to make you think. I guess it is just me who found the topics were not down to earth enough. Major topics in the Christian beliefs section include the reliability of the Bible, evil, hell, and the role of doubt, while the practices section is equally deep, with chapters on sin, the role of money, evangelizing, and the Holy Spirit. See for your self why you may not want to purchase .http://www.barnesandnoble.com/sample/read/9780825443312 May be his other books are better.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
