Don't Check Your Brains At The Door (updated and revised)

Don't Check Your Brains At The Door (updated and revised), Josh McDowell, Bob Hostetler, Thomas Nelson, Religion, August 2, 2011, 191 pages.

Synopsis: Don't Check Your Brains at the Door gives teens answers that make sense, even for the toughest of questions. Internationally known defender of the faith Josh McDowell and co-author Bob Hostetler offer clarity laced with humor to expose common myths about God, the Bible, religion, and life to show how Christianity stands up to the test of fact and reason. Teens will be better equipped to stick with their faith as they begin to understand why they believe and why it's important to make a lifetime commitment to Christ and the church.

My thoughts: This book is very useful to modern teenagers, and to other people, in refuting common myths about various Biblical topics and ideas. This revised edition has made it much more useful with more myths being torn down and explained in an easier way. For example, in some of the stories, iPads, iPods, gaming systems, etc. are mentioned. The chapters are pretty short, but comprehensive and complete. The “Brain Food” sections at the end of each chapter help the reader see for himself how the Bible refutes the myth just discussed. This is a fantastic book, and I recommend it to any struggling with questions about such myths, or even those who support any of the myths.
