Summary
Written in a respectful and conversational style, Harrison presents fifty questions designed to promote constructive dialogue and foster mutual understanding between Christians and non-Christians. Each question is followed by commentary and analysis that is skeptical and tough but never argumentative or condescending. Christians will find the book useful as a basis for developing their apologetics, while skeptics will welcome Harrison's probing rational analysis of religious claims
