The Reason Why

The Reason Why by Mark Mittelberg is a re-written version of the book The Reason Why that was originally written by Robert A. Laidlaw. It is a book that defines the Christian faith. It takes the core beliefs of the Christians and relates them in ways that almost anyone living today in our culture could understand.

When I first started reading this book I had to keep checking to make certain that it wasn’t written by Ray Comfort. Not that I have a problem with Ray Comfort, it was just so similar to what I have heard him say dozens of times. It did get into more detail, and I think it did a great job portraying the Christian beliefs. It was a pretty quick read. I would love to get some feedback from a non-Christian who reads this book and see what their opinion of it is. But overall I think it was pretty good.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale Media's book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Worldview: Biblical
Target Audience: Non-Christians, or Christians who are not convinced fully of their faith
Positive Elements: Clear, concise and to the point
Inappropriate Language: None
Unbiblical Content: None
Other Negative Elements: It does use and highly recommend the New Living Translation of the Bible, which is a thought for thought translation and possibly not as accurate as the NIV, NASB, or other word for word translations… but that’s debatable.
