I am a huge Craig Blomberg fan, as well as a bit of an apologetics nerd, so I was excited when I saw this book coming out. In this short work, Blomberg addresses ten common questions and offers brief and accessible defenses to the questions. Blomberg, while certainly not comprehensive, offers a fair and reasoned defense to each question. While this is not the most researched or thorough work on apologetics available today, it is certainly worth a read. Blomberg is an excellent evangelical scholar and his works never disappoint! This would make for a great first apologetics book for anyone curious to explore the genre. 
Thank you to Baker Academic for sending me a copy of this book to review.

This is a fairly short book but packs a good punch in addressing ten arguments against Christianity today. I actually like its shorter length as this makes it perfect for those who don't have time to wade through a larger volume. It is well argued, logical and coherent and would be a great resource for those seeking to answer critics of belief in God and those who are critics themselves. Recommended and I'll be purchasing a copy for myself and and see myself giving copies away to others. 

Thanks to NetGalley, Baker Academic and Brazos Press for ARC.

Bible scholar and theologian Craig Blomberg has written a very interesting that is very approachable to the layperson. The premise of this study provides biblical facts and logical arguments in how to respond to ten common questions/rejections regarding Christianity.

Some of the questions addressed include: Why does God allow evil and suffering? Will all non-Christians go to hell? What about all of the apparent errors in the Bible? Hasn't the church changed the Bible again and again over the years? Blomberg handles these and a total of ten different questions that believers will run across in social media and among their non-Christian friends.

The book contains great facts, and is written in a style that most layperson should find accessible and enlightening. Highly recommended!

Can We Still Believe in God? is a rare book that combines solid academics and popular appeal. The chapters are short enough to read easily and thorough enough to satisfy those who pride themselves as academics. Although the latter may have to read all the footnotes to be satiated. The language can be understood by the layperson reading the book, yet clergy members will find this a valuable resource for leading the flock during these days. The topics are timely and well reasoned. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is questioning their belief in God, or those helping answer that question for someone else.

Full review to be published online by late June.

I’m taking in CAN WE STILL BELIEVE IN GOD one point at a time so that I can fully digest the meaning. Although there are only ten points, they are all well fleshed out and with good reference points to do more researching. Fascinating reading, educational.
