An Enjoyable Book

I started to read the Case for Christ this week. This is the first time that I have read it and from what I have already read it is a very impressive book. While there was never any doubt in my mind that the Scriptures were correct this book sure does start to show some less important "real world evidence" that things do seem to check out. The thing that fascinates me most about this book is the fact that it attempts to tackle the questions that skeptics often associate with the Christian faith. These facts that we know can be a very important tool to reaching out to those who want to "see" before they believe. Of course this is part of human nature and it is apparent even in cases where Jesus was right there such as when Thomas doubted his friends about the risen Christ. At any rate this book is giving me some cool topics that I can talk about with other people without getting into any realy theological debates. Hopefully, if I can break some things down I will be posting about some of the things I find interesting in the book.

Just be careful not to confuse apologetics- which is nothing more than the ministerial use of reason to help remove objections to the Faith on the part of those otherwise willing to embrace it- with "Evangelical" style marketing and selling of Jesus.

Only God, through the Law and the Gospel, can bring a person to faith. The most apologetics can do is to help remove people's excuses for resisting.
