As the name suggests, this book attempts to give answers to questions that might arise when a sincere Christian discusses religion with others who may be of a different denomination or may not be Christians. Mr. Copan’s answers are thorough and well thought out. Here are some of the questions that the book deals with:

  1. “Is it OK to lie to Nazis?”
  2. “Are miracles unscientific?”
  3. “Aren’t people born gay?”
  4. “Aren’t the Bible’s ‘Holy Wars’ just like Islamic Jihad?”
This book is very interesting and thought provoking. While the reviewer didn’t agree with all of his conclusions, it is certainly worth reading.
