Book Review: “We Chose Life: Why You Should Too” by Anthony Horvath

Book Review by Mary Ann Kreitzer

It’s a parent’s worst nightmare — hearing the words, “You have a very sick child.” For a dad, it’s particularly difficult because his job, besides providing materially for his family, is to protect his loved ones from harm. But when illness strikes a child, a dad often stands helpless to “fix it.” Decisions about dealing with a critical illness in an already born child are difficult enough, but when that illness occurs in utero, parents are faced with another issue. The question is inevitable – “Will you keep it?” Since Roe v. Wade made … continue reading...

Three Upcoming Book Reviews and one Released

I have three books sent to me due for reading and reviewing.  It is going to be a week or possibly longer to get to one or all of them so I wanted to throw up a little blurb to each in the meantime.

If you are aware of Dan Barker’s ‘Easter Challenge’ you will enjoy this concerted effort to answer it.  Pastor Stephen Kingsley’s The Easter Answer:  What happened during the forty days between Easter and the Ascension is … continue reading...

My book, Spero, reviewed favorably by an atheist friend

Thanks go out to my friend Dannyboy whom I have known through forum debate for I think 15 years now.  Danny also graciously hosted me on a trip to England where he and I tipped back a pint (or two) at the Oxford inns where the Inklings (Lewis, Tolkien, etc) would meet.  Here are some pics from that affair.  WIthout further ado here is his review:

A Christian Review of Antony Flew’s “There is a God: How the world’s most notorious atheist changed his mind.”

I don’t remember when I first encountered Antony Flew’s arguments for atheism.  I do know that it was primarily Flew’s brand of atheism that I rejected and it was his brand of atheism that I seemed to encounter most often at the time Christian apologetics became one of my passions.  I met the news of his change of mind with deep interest and looked forward to the re-release of his ‘God and Philosophy’ which was going to include a new introduction explaining exactly where he now stood and how he got there.  I was disappointed with the lack of new … continue reading...

A Review of Lee Strobel’s Soon to be Released ‘The Case for The Real Jesus.’

Buy the Book, “The Case for the Real Jesus”

Strobel’s newest book was released September 10th, of 2007 and I was pleased to be offered a chance to review it prior to its release. I completely agree with Strobel on the need for such a book. It covers a lot of issues that I deal with on a daily basis in my own apologetics ministries. There is far too much information in the book to expect a comprehensive treatment, and like his other books, he doesn’t pretend to do so. Each chapter has a number of resources that readers can … continue reading...
