Evidence That Demands A Verdict: Life-Changing Truth For A Skeptical World – Book Review

Have you ever wondered whether the stories of the Bible and the claims of Christianity are true? Do you believe the Bible with all of your heart but wish you could give a better defense of your faith to those around you?

No matter what your spiritual background or beliefs, Evidence That Demands A Verdict: Life-Changing Truth For A Skeptical World by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell, PhD is an eye-opening deserves a place on your bookshelf!

The story behind Evidence That Demands A Verdict is fascinating. When Josh McDowell was in college, desperately seeking happiness and meaning in life he met a group of people who seemed to have what he wanted. When he asked why they were so happy, they responded that they had Jesus in their lives. He laughed at them, thinking that this was the stupidest thing he had ever heard!

The group challenged Josh to examine the claims of Christianity from an intellectual basis, and he took up the challenge, determined to prove that Christianity was false. The more he began to research Christianity, however, the more evidence he found that supported the claims that it was true! Finally, he could deny the evidence no longer. He became a Christian and began to strategize ways to share his discoveries with others.

Out of Josh’s research, the first edition of Evidence That Demands A Verdict was published by Campus Crusade for Christ in 1972. The demand for that book was staggering: today, over one million copies of the now-classic apologetics resource are in print! This book has been named one of the Top 50 books that have shaped evangelicals by Christianity Today!

When I first heard that the father-son duo was updating Evidence That Demands A Verdict, I was excited by the prospect, but wondered if the updated edition was worth the investment. Is there enough of a difference between the original version of the book and the new edition to justify the purchase?

The answer is a resounding yes!

The new edition of Evidence That Demands A Verdict has been completely updated and revised to include thorough revisions, updates, and entirely new chapters that defend the faith against the latest attacks from critics and address concerns raised by a postmodern culture.

Josh McDowell says:

Christianity is a mental faith – all truth starts with knowledge. Instead of feelings justifying truth, truth needs to justify our feelings.

If you are looking for a book that will help you to strengthen, solidify and share your faith with others, I can’t think of a better book to add to your library than the new edition of Evidence That Demands A Verdict.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
