Publisher's Summary

The goal of God’s Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty is straightforward: to help listeners develop "a faith that is real and credible - and strong enough to help others find faith in God." To that end, Rice Broocks outlines a roadmap that guides seekers to acknowledge the most basic truths of Christianity:


There is overwhelming and exciting evidence for God’s existence.
The God who exists is indeed the God of the Bible.
God has revealed his nature through his Son, Jesus Christ.

Persuasive arguments crafted with tools borrowed from logic, science, and philosophy, as well as scripture, solidify the faith of the Christian listeners and provide starting points for discussions with skeptics. With clear, easy-to-follow explanations of key concepts and controversies, God’s Not Dead is apologetics for the 21st century, presented in layman’s terms. Listeners will be empowered not only to talk about their own faith with confidence but to lead others to a relationship with Jesus.

I liked the Concept but...

Any additional comments?

Rice Broocks is part of the Maranatha ministries. Let's just say it's considered a cult. He goes to colleges to influence people to convert to this style of learning about God, as in this book. Some agree, I do not. I wanted to listen to this to see what he had to say because I deal with Atheists here in Utah on a daily regarding fighting for my right to say I'm a Christian without being put down. He does a wonderful job with the facts, I have to say, that is why I was intrigued. But I cannot get behind his ministry. I prefer a Community to praise God and love one another. Not a following.

Flaws but some valid points

I am an athiest/agnositc. I also beleive in hearing all sides of a debate or discussion and thinking through the arguments. How you should approach this book will depend on the type of audience you are.

If your a christian...
This book has a lot of cheer leading for you. However don't assume this is the perfect argument to bring athiests to the church pews. It's not. There are many statements the author claims are scientific facts that just aren't. The general direction of the author's argument is not going to appeal to a non-beleiver. I would not use this as a guide to converting athiests.

If your an athiest...
There is a lot to laugh at in this book. The author's grasp of scientific knowledge is light, enough to sound smart to the unschooled. I found the first half of the book more compelling than the second half. The second half goes into scripture a lot and he assumes you will see the wisdom and truth in it where there just isn't any. The author does kind of make a point we athiests should take to heart. Some athiests of the more militant kind cannot see the comfort and wisdom that religion provides many people. My mother needs faith like a fish needs water. No amount of reason is going to stop that. I love Dawkins books on science but he is a bit harsh with believers, which causes the faithfull to double down. We can appreciate the wisdom of Luke 6:31, do unto others as you would have them do to you, even if we don't beleive in the magic man in the sky.
