At some point in a Christian’s faith, he/she will be asked to defend their beliefs. Ron Rhodes offers logical answers with sound support.

It is very difficult to answer the arguments of atheists, agnostics, and skeptics and it is very intimidating. Rhodes writes in an easy to understand, logical manner. This is a book for laymen. The author uses scriptural background to support his statements. He covers such statements as:

There is no such thing as absolute truth.

Genesis is a myth, not a scientific account.

A loving God cannot exist—there is too much evil and suffering.

If God created all things, how did He create Himself?

Sin is an outdated concept.

There are a lot of books on the market claiming to assist Christians in answering such questions. Answering The Objections of Atheistic, Agnostics, and Skeptics is well-written. Rhodes states the questions and discusses the answers in an easy-to-understand format. His vast experience and expertise add to this topic. Christians will benefit from Answering The Objections of Atheistic, Agnostics, and Skeptics.

Im surprized to see that it has such bad reviews. I think it is nearly the perfect introduction to apologetics there is out there. Everything is simple and formatted well. It helped me get into the frame of mind to look at other authors such a CS Lewis and Dinesh D'zousa.

Rhodes answers objections made by non-believers. He is easily understood; makes sure his point gets across. Important and outstanding work; there should be no excuse; he gives us strong, undeniable evidence for the existence of God, Savior, Holy Spirit, and the inerrancy of the bible. Ron quotes a variety of individuals who were influential throughout time. Apologetics: gaining the faith and strength one needs to share the truth. Excellent bibliography for further study recourses.

Ron explains how similar atheists, agnostics, and skeptics really are: the origins, history, beliefs, religion of fear, the illogical position. Agnostics: cant know or not sure; unknowable; if he believes this He can not entirely be unknowable. Skeptic: he is not skeptical, his worldview of skepticism is correct.

"The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God'."

Good accompaniments: "Darwin's Black Box", "In the Minds of Men", "Mere Christianity"

Wish you well

Despite what the reviewer below said (who didn't even bother commenting on the book, talk about an innappropriate review) this book is good. It contained a little unique information and was well written and easy to understand.
