I Can't Think of A Better Resource That Fits between Two Covers: Evidence That Demands A Verdict
Evidence That Demands A Verdict is easily one of the most recognizable titles in the world of apologetics, but even if you've read one of the earlier versions, you don’t want to miss out on the updated 2017 version. ETDAV has had its largest update yet, and I’m glad they updated it for a couple reasons.
1) The culture has changed, and some of the questions people ask have changed as well.
2) We keep finding more evidence that demands a verdict!
So much of the content of this book was contributed by the best evangelical scholars, but the editors did a great job making sure the average reader could understand. And this is the beauty of the book. It presents evidence—not the kind you need an MA in Philosophy to understand but clear, attainable evidence within anyone’s intellectual reach.
Just look through the table of contents. The book has whole chapters on how we got the Bible, whether Jesus’ existence is historical, archeology and the Old Testament, if miracles are even possible, and so much more! Imagine going through all of that evidence with an unbeliever. Imagine going through all of that with a believer!
Personally, this book has been a great resource for my college ministry and I would recommend it to anyone in ministry. I bought 3 copies to sell at our resource table in a recent church conference and they sold out in minutes! We ended up ordering more copies and selling all of those as well.
Don’t wait to get your copy. Read it. Learn from it. Share it with others.
