    Demonstrates how to answer briefly and powerfully—and yet with gentleness and respect.

    Posted by Kel Richards on 17th Sep 2018

    Those of us who are old enough have seen Western Civilisation move from being pro-Christianity, to being anti-Christian to being aggressively hostile to the Christian worldview. That’s where we are now. And that is the culture that Charlie H. Campbell addresses in the new updated, third edition of his book One-Minute Answers to Skeptics. The Bible tells Christians to be “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15) This is what Charlie Campbell equips his readers to do. In this new edition of his classic book he captures the fact that (a) challenges will often come in the form of statements rather than questions, and (b) will often reflect a kind of “politically correct” hostility. In his answers he demonstrates how to answer briefly and powerfully—and yet with gentleness and respect. (The “briefly” part is important—we often have a very short window of attention in which to respond to such challenges.) That 1 Peter 3:15 passage is a command—and a command that applies universally to all Christians. If you read it carefully you’ll see that it’s a command to “do your homework” (“be prepared”)—this book is all your homework in just 92 pages!

    The best little book of its type I have read. It is short, sharp and very much to the point. This really is an excellent book to give to skeptics. It is also a useful book for believers to read in order to boost their confidence when giving answers to people who ask a range of difficult questions. There are books which deal with theological questions and problems in much more detail but this book is a good place to start for anyone who had not done much reading around these kind of issues. The whole idea with this publication is to provide a good one minute answer to the sort of questions an agnostic or non-religious person often raises. [This review was imported from another website by ABR and is a review of the second edition of the book, not the newest third edition]

    Very good! To the point without pointing fingers at the person. Focuses on the sin, not the sinner. Excellent biblical references. Love it!

    Apologetics is important

    Posted by John Dickins on 7th Sep 2018

    This is a GREAT little book. I've been spending a lot of time reading, memorizing, and adding to the answers. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in talking to others about salvation, God, Jesus etc.

    Everyone should have one of these!

    Posted by Marty on 24th Jul 2018

    I just received my copy of Charlie's new book. IT IS GREAT!!!! I strongly recommend this book for ANYONE AND EVERYONE. It's pocket size, easy reading, concise and easy to remember if you're going to breakfast with a friend, and especially valuable for those "hard to reach stubborn skeptics" . If you're part of a church evangelism team , EVERYONE should have one of these along with a pocket Bible to refer to. Thank you Charlie for your heart to reach out to those unsaved that are hard to talk to, and the gift of 'conversational evangelism", listening and asking questions.

    Excellent Book for Believers & Unbelievers

    Posted by Gerry Kurtz on 14th Jul 2017

    Everyone has asked some or even most of the questions in this book at one time in their life. The author gives short, direct, clear Biblical answers to many questions and doesn't avoid the tough ones or the controversial ones. I have given away at least 100 copies. I hope it stays in print and is available for many years.
