Book Review: Today's Moment of Truth by Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg

As a Christian, it is important to know what you believe as well as why you believe. Many Christians don't what they believe because they either don't read the Bible or they are not part of Biblically faithful church to equip them. There are many resources outside the Bible that can equip believers in the knowledge of the Christian faith.

Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg have written many books on helping Christians know what they believe as well how to share their faith with people. They have written a book together for Christians to help them in their knowledge of the faith called, Today's Moment of Truth. If think this is an apologetic book with lots of theological words and charts, this is not that book.

This book is more of a devotional with short readings. Could be a devotional for the entire year? It could, but it is not set up that way. Strobel and Mittelberg go through various topics such as God being eternal, why Jesus had to suffer, and being made in the image of God. When I read the devotionals a lot of the reading was like listening to a motivational speaker.

There was hardly an depth and the authors kept using multiple translations of the Bible to make their point as if Rick Warren did in The Purpose Driven Life. While Strobel and Mittelberg have written some good devotionals that met the purpose of the book, I would not consider this my go-to devotional book for the coming year or any year. Granted, there are some good stories that have been used to illustrate a point, but I can't recommend it for equipping a Christian in their growth.

Thanks Booklook Bloggers for letting me review this book.
