An excellent and comprehensive resource to help Christians contend with controversial questions about their faith. Copan writes eloquently and respectfully on social and moral themes. . . . Though each topic is approached with care, Copan does not flinch from a biblical stance and delineates each problem with exemplary thoroughness. Thoughtful readers will find great value in his approach to unpacking Christian slogans as related to truth and reality, worldviews and religious belief systems. He expertly unmasks the problematic ‘personal autonomy’ philosophy that makes ‘sweeping relativistic claims, but then tacks on absolute, inviolable standards at the end.’ Copan’s skillful approach to apologetics provides ample information on hot-topic themes.
Copan does an excellent job. . . . His training in philosophy is evident, as he understands the issues well, and presents cogent and reasoned positions. Highly recommended for Christians who want to engage friends and neighbors in a winsome and respectful manner.
