Listen to (and/or read) This Book! It's Great!
This is a very good and useful tool for the Christian life. i pretty much know WHAT i believe, and i know a lot about WHY i believe, but after listening to "Know Why You Believe", i am better equipped to explain to others WHAT and WHY i believe. i thought "Know Why You Believe" was a very good audiobook, and i will be listening to it again and often.

Lots of good stuff, better organization?
I was so glad to see this month's Christian audio book was an apologetics one since I do love apologetics and this meant many of the books I was interested in would be on sale. This actually was not a book on my interest list and as I listened to the first chapter I felt like this had very much the same points as my favorite, "I dont have enough faith to be an atheist". I was afraid it would end up all being stuff I already heard, and much of it was, but I liked that this was a different compilation of some of that info. Some of my favorite content from this book: remarkable qualities of water, why church moved to Sundays, how the Bible can be taken literally as long as you mean to do this by deducing the clear intent of the writers (if the writers meant it literally or figuratively, you take it how they said it), we are more precise with numbers now than they were in their records of history in Biblical times ,the principle of uncertainty with electrons and how this could also relate to Christianity. This covers some highlights from the book, "How we got the Bible" about our textual research and origins, how the crucificion year can be figured, copies of the NT documents vs non-Christian historical docs, determining the canon, the apocrypha, Biblical archaeological evidence, how Paul's career can be dated from Gallo, how the scientific method was originally envisioned by religious people appreciating the logic God gave us to work with, deists vs. theists, if the world was made in 24-hr days, how the golden rule is not sufficient as a whole religion, how Christianity differs from Judiasm, Buddhism & Islam, and tolerance versus agreement.

While I had heard a lot of the content before, I loved hearing it in a different way--pretty relatable really, and all in one spot, yet I did not appreciate the organization of it all. Seemed like it would just throw out one topic right after another with no clear structure on where we were going next. For that reason, I still favor, Geisler and Turek's book because of its excellent organization. But this book offers a mix of what that book has, plus a book on biblical text studies, plus some other good material so it's a nice read too.

helpful, wide range of support considered
As a Christian, the ideas and proofs given in this book are helpful when thinking through conversations that you will have as a believer- with other believers in discipleship and with non-believers. I might need the actual book for reference.
