Beyond Opinion is a valuable book dealing with the subject of apologetics. It is written by a variety of authors, mostly on-staff with Ravi Zacharias Internationl Ministries, and edited by Ravi Zacharias, a foremost apologist of today; he also contributed four of the chapters in the book. It is a dense book, topping 330 pages with small type, rich with end-notes and references. The aim of the book is to integrate apologetics into everyday living and discipleship of the Christian life, with its stated purpose: “to encourage and challenge the reader (a nonexpert in apologetics) to feel comfortable talking about the gospel without feeling the burden of needing a high level of philosophical training.” The variety of authors means there are different writing styles and experiences of each author, and some chapters are easier or more difficult to read than others. Some of the chapters read very scholarly and complex while other chapters sound and feel more personal. Overall it is a deep and challenging book and a needed topic of discussion in Christianity today. It is both practical and theoretical in its approach.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson publishers at no cost for the purpose of review. I was not required to write a positive review.
