My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This short book has a clear and limited aim. It’s not to present the essence of Christian faith. Nor to disprove other beliefs.
Instead, its aim is to show that Christianity by nature is open to objective enquiry. Such enquiry is not the whole of Christianity, nor sufficient to make one convert. Yet the openness flows directly from the historical and objective nature of the claims: that the real Jesus really lived, died and rose again.
The book is also good in pointing out the impossibility of all faiths being equally true, a prevalent modern mis-application of ‘tolerance’. (All faiths could be equally untrue, of course.)
I think this book is good as a friendly give-away and conversation-starter. In fact, I can already think of someone who might enjoy reading it. Time to buy a new copy…
