Evidences for God Book Review


Evidences for God and His Creations:
Nature, The Flood, and The Bible
Dr. T. J. Tofflemire


If you are looking for an in-depth, thoroughly researched, apologetic book then this is the one for you. Dr. Tofflemire summarizes nearly 200 apologetic.. meaning having to do with the defense and proof of Christianity, and brings them to the attention of basic Christians. Taking the detailed, maybe harder to understand research and making it meaningful in layman’s terms. I know I tend to shy away from Apologetics because it always seems too intellectual or hard for me to understand. I love how Dr. Tofflemire breaks it down into terms I can relate to and then share with others around me.

The book’s purpose, paraphrased from the author.

*Give an overview of the problems and big picture first and then provide some summary details and references allowing the reader to delve deeper
*Allow the reader to give ‘big picture’ talks on various topics
*Aid the Christian to have ready apologetic answers to common questions and differing world views.

This book is excellent for the Bible student, homeschoolers, Christians who desire to be able to share more of the Biblical World view with those outside of that world view. It is not a light read, even though Dr. T basically gives us a summary of the summary of many resources. Deep subject matter like this can’t be dwindled down to bare bones.

Fantastic resource book for referencing different works written by non Christians and Christians alike to prove the evidence for Noah’s Flood, the Creation of the world by God alone, and the inerrancy of the Bible.  I could see this being a great college or high school resource book.

I appreciate Dr. Tofflemire taking the time to contact me about his book. I am excited to share it with my high school boys and get their take on the information he presents. I loved that it wasn’t apologetics according to Dr. Tofflemire, but more a collaboration of resources on the subject.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. You can get a copy of this book at http://www.amazon.com/Evidences-God-His-Creations-Apologetics/dp/1463427018/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1330540509&sr=8-2
