    I can't really rate this book on its writing because it's just a collection of responses from different theologians. I was excited about this book because I love apologetics and being able to have biblical discussions. But this book isn't apologetics; and there is not a variety of views in this book. I couldn't find a single conservative voice in the mix. I don't agree with much of the theology of the authors, given that I am religiously traditional, but I found their theological maneuverings to I can't really rate this book on its writing because it's just a collection of responses from different theologians.

I don't agree with much of the theology of the authors, given that I am religiously traditional, but I found their theological maneuverings to get the Bible to say what they wanted to say disingenuous at best, and downright anti-Bible/anti-Christian at worst. At times just saying, the Bible says this, but we don't have to believe the Bible to be Christian.

    As someone who has had their faith shaken over the past year, some serious questions have started to pop up. I picked up this book, hoping to answer them. This book addresses 50 questions about Christianity that were sent in and several different Bible experts give their take. It was alright. It definitely was a good starting point and gave me some good resources and things to think about but it wasn’t mind blowing. Good to look through and read what relates to questions you have and then think f As someone who has had their faith shaken over the past year, some serious questions have started to pop up.
