Title: Did the Resurrection Happen … Really? A Dialogue on Life, Death, and Hope
Author: Josh McDowell and Dave Sterrett
Date Finished: April 8, 2013
Josh McDowell takes an interesting approach in presenting this introductory book on apologetics by crafting his presentation around an imaginary shooting on a college campus. The shooting leaves both staff and students searching for answers. Christians, atheists, and skeptics come together in the aftermath to investigate the reliability of Scripture. The evidence, arguments, and logic offered the book is quite convincing and is presented in a very approachable manner.
This book is an entry in McDowell’s ‘Coffee House Chronicles’ series and is geared toward college aged readers. My biggest concern is that readers of this age group may find the dialogue between characters a little awkward and somewhat unnatural. They are sure to be rewarded, however, if they persevere and focus mostly on the evidence that infuses this little book. Another bonus is that this book is rather inexpensive for the Kindle.
