Publisher's Summary

The modern apologetics classic that started it all is now completely revised and updated - because the truth of the Bible doesn't change, but its critics do. With the original Evidence That Demands a Verdict, best-selling author Josh McDowell gave Christian audiences the answers they needed to defend their faith against the harshest critics and skeptics.

Since that time, Evidence has remained a trusted resource for believers young and old. Bringing historical documentation and the best modern scholarship to bear on the trustworthiness of the Bible and its teachings, this extensive volume has encouraged and strengthened millions.

Now, with his son Sean McDowell, Josh McDowell has updated and expanded this classic resource for a new generation. This is a book that invites listeners to bring their doubts and doesn't shy away from the tough questions.

  • Thoroughly revised and updated from the previous edition
  • Now coauthored by Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell
  • All-new chapters defending against the latest attacks from Christianity's critics
  • Designed to be a go-to reference for even the toughest questions
  • Offers thoughtful responses to the Bible's most difficult and extraordinary passages
  • Expansive defense of Christianity's core truths, including the resurrection of Jesus Christ

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

A Very Important Book

A massive and meticulous forensic examination of the text of the Bible. Takes us into every corner of the debate over the validity of the Bible, and examines every aspect in detail. A very rewarding book.

Great content, a little windy

I love how the book starts with a story and grows progressively more heady. The content covered is phenomenal and I love how they try to deal with as many opposing points as possible. Toward the end I felt that the logical arguments required exceptional focus at times while some were so obvious that they didn’t really need to be addressed. Anyway, this review may say more about my personality than the book itself.

This isn't great as an audio book

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is interesting and I would like to read it in hard copy, it's just not an easy one to listen to and follow.

What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

When I first started listening I was really wondering if the author was a talk-to-text, he reads very unevenly and dryly. I mean, I know it's not a story book, but blah. It's painful. There is a part in the book he goes "zero zero zero, zero zero zero, zero zero zero" and it's as close as an actual person could get to text-to-talk.

What character would you cut from Evidence That Demands a Verdict?

The narrator

Lexicons aren't best suited for Audible

At least there's heaps of chapters in here, so it's somewhat easy to navigate, but this book is definitely best suited for having in print. Lists of Bible references, references to other chapters and the general layout seems to be designed as a resource to look up, when in need.

The general flow is what separates the book from a lexicon, because there's a storyline, a progression, instead of a list.

I was negative to the title before finishing it, because of the cheesy title, but it turned out to be a very serious book, self-aware and strong. I love that they often do not overstate the case, and rather leave the case open, and that they even encourage to read criticism of their own book. That's a healthy way to go forward.

The material in itself is simply very good.

It would be nice if audible would offer chapter #s

I would like to be able to navigate by chaper. Each chapter should be labeled. With the audiobook you get section 1 and a time duration, section two and the time duration, section 3 and a time duration. Not helpful and i am finding this on other audible purchases.

You'll Need the Hard Copy

This is a very detailed book. if you are trying to build your belief in the Bible, for me there was way to much information and very hard to keep track of all the information. I think you really need the hard copy to be able to study and retain the information. i couldn't make it through the whole book becauseI was overwhelmed with the amount of information .

I did purchase the hard copy and am going attempt to see if reading it clears things up.

A gift of God

My review title is not an overstatement. As an Apologist myself, I have been in dialogue, recently, with the atheist community. As a result, I compiled a list of "hot" issues to research. Low and behold, this new revision of ETDV contains exactly the list of topics I compiled! The Lord is listening to the questions and doubts of unbelievers and is calling His people to respond with the answers 1 Peter 3:15. This truly amazes me! God still honors the "Doubting Thomas" and offers them a touch of the evidence that truly demands a positive verdict.

Don't let the 42 hours 39 mins intimidate you

Great book. I felt it was fine as an audio book. Its' long but worth the journey, you will be smarter and your faith will be deeper by the end. It's almost like 4 books in one, in a certain good way. Audible now has the chapter names listed, makes it easy to go back and listen to chapters you want to reinforce.

This book is for paper, not audio

This book is probably great as a paper reference - it is not good as an audio book for two reasons: (1) the reader (often Sean McDowell) has an almost robotic voice that is not easy to listen to. In some parts it almost seems like they recorded him saying various words/phrases and then computer-generated his audio using those recorded samples, or something, and (2) much of this book is organized more in a reference format with outline #s and letters. The voice-over reads every one of those numbers and letters like "I. Old Testament. A. Septuagint. 1. Number of manuscripts. a. Verified" or something like that. It wouldn't fix everything but it would be better if the performer just skipped over all those "headings" and let the narrative flow, or somehow presented the information in an audible-friendly way.

Well Researched Resource

I was pleased with this book. The narrator annoyed me at first, but I quickly got used to his tone. He has a deep voice, sounding almost computerized and under sampled at times, but it didn’t take away from the book.

I also enjoyed listening to this in an audible form. It was easy to take in, as long as I was doing something mind numbing like driving to work, or running.

It hit many things in Christian apologetics. I was pleased with the information. I appreciated the book taking on Ehrman.

I plan to purchase the hard copy as a reference to have on hand, but I enjoyed getting the material through audio.

Very well researched and and presented

The authors provide a wealth of knowledge and present it in a manner that includes various points of view and opposing positions. A must read for anyone that is interested in apologetics or wants information with which to confirm your faith. Very informative and well read.

A Lot of Information

The information in this book does demand a verdict. Though at times the facts became dry, the content has been thoroughly researched and academically given. What I like most is the authors do not only give evidence for their arguments, but gives the rebuttal as well. Great information for anyone interested in winning a skeptic or building faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
