The collected interviews and experiences of the author as he speaks with people who do not believe in Christianity regarding their reasons for unbelief along with research of the author into various people, historic and present, who have written against the Christian faith.

The author does well at exposing a lot of the fictions believers accept regarding why others do not believe. He also does well to show believers a lot of the challenges that they pose because of their attitudes and conduct.

The author is Evangelical and is perhaps a bit too free in his "judgments" regarding what he does and does not like about what God has revealed (although the honesty is refreshing). Sometimes his statements are a bit too simplistic and buy a little too much into Western post-Enlightenment rationalism. His story regarding "Lucifer" may be doctrinally suspect, as the referents in Isaiah and Ezekiel may refer to human characters.

On the whole, however, a good introductory investigation for a believer regarding the feelings and experiences of unbelievers. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031024997X, Paperback)

Let the critics take their best shot. When the smoke clears, Christianity is still standing. Lots of books have been written on apologetics---savvy defenses of the Christian faith. But should your faith really depend on your ability to outsmart every critic? I Still Believe invites doubters, skeptics and others to open fire through candid interviews with a wide range of unbelievers, from the gentle offended to the angry antagonist. Rather than making a case for faith, it turns the tables by asking unbelievers to make their case for unbelief. When you truly listen, you gain a better understanding of their underlying feelings and mind-set; suggesting a deeper, unspoken reason millions reject Christian truth. See for yourself why the burden of proof lies with the unbeliever, not you. I Still Believe lets you eavesdrop on conversations with people who find Christianity hard to swallow. Hear what they've got to say with a compassionate heart, but also an objective mind. You'll understand them better. But in the end, you'll also be able to look them confidently in the eye and say, 'I still believe.'
