God's Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty


GOD’S NOT DEAD: Evidence For God in an Age of Uncertainty
We live in an age filled with skepticism.  Sadly, many believers ignore the need to head the call of Scripture to “always be ready to give an answer for reason for hope that is in you.”  Skeptics in our day are continually seeking to wage new and increased attacks on the faith.  As great as works like Mere Christianity are, they alone do not help us deal with the newest assaults on faith in Christ.  In God’s Not Dead, author Rice Broocks addresses the current attacks on religion waged by people like Richard Dawkins.  Broocks establishes evidence for God from the realms of philosophy, science, history, and theology.  The does a wonderful job of addressing tougher issues such as the dilemma of good and evil, as well as addressing the idea that religion has done more harm than good throughout history. 

It can be easy for an average person like me to shy away from deep and heavy apologetics books.  I read plenty of them in college and seminary and finished them with more of a headache than a confidence to handle questions and objections.  God’s Not Dead is not a dead apologetics book!  It does a wonderful job of addressing the issues in a way that any reader can follow and comprehend with confidence.  For anyone serious about being ready to defend the faith against the latest swarms of attacks, I would highly recommend this book.  But I would also recommend this book for any believer to help establish their own faith as one that is based on evidence and not just a blind leap of faith.
