God’s Not Dead by Broocks

With so many loud, seemingly authoritative voices championing atheism and so few Christian voices being allowed the opportunity to broadcast the Gospel it can be hard for a Christian to answer the challenge. Enter Broocks.

God’s Not Dead
Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty
By Rice Broocks

March 2013

Broocks uses philosophy and logic – the same tools being abused to condemn Christianity – to show that the most rational, logical and correct worldview is that of the Christians. The author goes in to great depth to show the meaninglessness of empiricism and how it leads to only one conclusion: that we can prove nothing.

I love how the book was deep enough for those who have some experience and want deeper answers but could also be boiled down to very easy to understand concepts. Consider how the author destroys the argument against God because of evil: how can I believe in a god when there is so much evil in the world? The author answers simply: no God = no evil. Evil and good are concepts that are only explained by a creator God who gave them to us. A natural world built by undirected change and chance cannot create concepts like good and evil. Good stuff.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling with the questions raised by non-believers or for those who want to have an answer for the hope that lies within them.
