This book includes evidences from history, prophecy, science, creation, and covers topics like the existence of God, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, the reliability of the Bible, is Jesus the only way, and the gospel.
Josh also gives personal details and stories, including his struggles growing up with an alcoholic father and being sexually molested as a child by a man who worked his parents farm. He describes how God helped him through these terrible problems when he became a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ.

This is a book of evidentialist apologetics. This is an approach that focuses on the Lord Jesus Christ in both history and prophecy. This is a good approach, as many people already believe that God exists. Classical apologetics is good for those who do not believe that God exists. This is a two-step approach that first argues for the existence of God and then for the Lord Jesus Christ. As noted above, this book also has arguments for the existence of God.
