God’s Not Dead
By: Rice Broocks
All I can say is wow! This book is not only full of incredible information, but it carries with it the call to awaken those that have too long been beaten down by the cynical and bitter argument of the skeptic. It flies in the face of those that would hide behind unprovable theories to explain away creation and our very existence and declares heartily that God is not dead.
Broocks begins with a very broad, sweeping explanation of how improbable it is for life to spring up from some sort of cosmic coincidence, and aptly points to the design of a Creator. Using quotes, arguments, and historical fact, Broocks paints a picture of how (despite the noisy argument of the skeptic that would deny it) the evidence for a Creator is overwhelming.
Moving from argument to argument, Broocks takes time to touch on the most broad to the most intimate detail of how the evidence for God is astounding. Pointing to huge gaps in the skeptics arguments such as the lack of evidence for intermediate species in the evolutionary chain, as well as to the more intricate process of a lung evolving at exactly the same pace and progression as a heart, two organs which rely upon the other to create life within the organism.
Digging deeper still, Broocks begins to point out how the Christian faith stands out above all others, and how the evidence for Christ being the Son of God is also overwhelming. Again, bringing in historical fact and expert commentary, Broocks defeats the arguments of those that would dispel the evidence for Christ’s resurrection and equate it to other deity’s such as Horus.
Admittedly, this is my first book on apologetics, and I feel like it was an excellent starting point. I will definitely be pursuing other literature in this genre.
