It's decent. You'll come back to it for quick reference.  Apr 4, 2010
I think this work largely accomplished what it set out to do, be a quick reference to popular issues in apologetics. I don't know if I like this being called an encyclopedia though, this fits more into a category like "Holman's QuickSource Guides" (Doug Powell's is excellent by the way). One of it's strong points is it's breadth of subject matter. From Plantinga's Reformed Epistemology to the analogy of being to mentioning the UFO cult the Nuwaubians (it's about time!), this book has a taste of just about everything you wouldn't possibly think of. And don't let Ergun Caner's name disuade you; he may be highly unpopular but the rest of the Liberty University faculty that contributed to this work are pretty cool guys (I had them for professors). So if you're looking for something that gets to meat with out alot of bones on a wide range of subjects, this is your book.
 
Book in wonderful shape  Mar 19, 2010
Everything went well with my order. However, I still haven't figured out why it takes so long to ship. Other than that I received it before my class started. I am very pleased with the prices of the books I purchase. Thank you all.
Blessings,

Compelling Comprehensive Apologetic Resource  Oct 13, 2009
This offering provides a wide-ranging new resource as a valuable tool for the mature pastor or for those with little background in apologetics. Some of the church's most gifted minds contribute to this laudable and persuasive volume. This includes bestselling author Josh McDowell, philosopher Norman Geisler, Baptist Seminary Academician Albert Mohler, David Noebel, Resurrection expert Gary Habermas, Dillon Burroughs, popular TV apologist John Ankerberg, and more. 150-plus entries make this a compelling source of some of the finest evidentialist scholarship available.

History, cultic groups, Church Fathers, epistemology, ethics (including modern genetic topics), Messianic prophecy, philosophy, atheism, and many other contemporary apologetic issues are discussed and the Christian position vividly defended.

The two drawbacks I found:
1. Considering that it is an encyclopedia, most of the subjects are not dealt with in depth (the great majority of the subjects are analyzed with painstaking precision, but space limits the length available. Additional books are suggested for further study on various topics).
2. Since the majority of the entries overlook epistemic issues, the reader is left with a highly probable apologetic. I prefer certainty that is found in undermining the non-believer's epistemic rights and privileges that are involved in pondering, discussing, examining, and debating all evidence, ideas, and asserted perspectives.
Those (both evidentialists and presuppositionalists) who place this comprehensive work on their bookshelf will appeal to it frequently. Notwithstanding my apologetic bias, I heartily recommend this hardback.

No reason to doubt!  Aug 30, 2009
There is no reason to doubt anything God has said and if you ever feel this nasty sensation coming on and connot ignore it get you hands on this book to hlep your weak faith. I will be using this among other sources in my Sunday School class.
