Book Review: God's Not Dead: Evidence for God in an Age of Uncertainty by Rice Broocks

You and I know that God is not dead but how can we convince others of this fact? This book is a helpful apologetics tool and is pretty easy to read & understand (not too technical or heavy). The author presents 9 key concepts to show that God exists and to help readers answer questions received from unbelievers/ atheists/skeptics. Questions like "Why are we here?" "Why doesn't God remove evil from the world?" and "Who designed the Designer?" and more. Indeed, there's overwhelming evidence for the existence of God...from the incredible fine-tuning of the universe and the intricacies and complexity of life to the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the witness of Scripture. Sadly, regardless of the abundance of evidence pointing to God, some people are blind or stubborn (refuse to go where the evidence leads to God); they're willing to embrace any alternative...anything (no matter how absurd) but God. Scientifically, historically, archaeologically, philosophically, and logically, the evidence for God is clearly seen and undeniable!

I enjoyed reading this informative book and kept underlining as I read. Each chapter starts with two interesting quotes and ends with a concise summary. I found God's Not Dead useful and a great complement to what I learned from the Truth Project. I highly recommend this book for any seekers (you may find answers to your doubts), any believers (you will be able to use what you learn in the book to confidently articulate your faith to unbelievers), and any skeptics (you want truth? I hope you can handle the truth :)).

"There are real reasons why unbelievers don't want God to exist or at least seek to reduce Him to a blind impersonal force. No God--no accountability. No God--no real morals." (p. 8)

"The fact that certain functions of life are irreducibly complex, meaning that they can't function without all the parts present at once, points to the presence of an intelligent Designer." (p. 113)

"The living proof of God's existence is the continued testimony of His working in the lives of people around the world." (p. 235)
