Any additional comments?
I know.. a good child of God should never compare, but this is far superior to any defense I've ever read by Stroebl, Piper, or Yancey (my favorite writer). As the pages were being read, I became overwhelmingly sad.. sad that I couldn't possible retain all the points being made to memory.. sad that I had so many audiobooks on my wishlist and couldn't just listen to this one over and over again.. sad that not even a meaningful fraction of this planet's inhabitants will ever read or listen to this book.
Having read all that Hitchens and Dawkins (atheist writers) have to say, this sub-6-hour listen puts every major argument to rest with the subtle efficiency of Keller's brilliant prose.

The Rocky Balboa of Apologetics
Keller is masterful at conveying the heart of Christianity. Entrenched in ministry in NYC, he's certainly the seeker's saint. He does an EXCEPTIONAL job of defending his faith in a way which would not (in my opinion) make others defensive about theirs. While not dumping anything down, he delivers a message which is concise, meaningful, effective and ENGAGING.
A GREAT listen filled with anecdotal stories, high theology and historical facts. Would recommend it to both battle-hardened apologists who have forgotten WHY they do what they do, and to seekers who have no basis for Truth. Not the biggest or most comprehensive evangelistic works out there, but certainly the one with the biggest heart!
