Very deep, logical and methodical ezamination of the claims against the truthfulness and historicity of the christian scripture cannon. Quite detailed and academic which may make it a heavy read for those looking for a simple story.
At least there's heaps of chapters in here, so it's somewhat easy to navigate, but this book is definitely best suited for having in print. Lists of Bible references, references to other chapters and the general layout seems to be designed as a resource to look up, when in need.
The general flow is what separates the book from a lexicon, because there's a storyline, a progression, instead of a list.
I was negative to the title before finishing it, because of the cheesy title, but it turned out to be a very serious book, self-aware and strong. I love that they often do not overstate the case, and rather leave the case open, and that they even encourage to read criticism of their own book. That's a healthy way to go forward.
The material in itself is simply very good.

My review title is not an overstatement. As an Apologist myself, I have been in dialogue, recently, with the atheist community. As a result, I compiled a list of "hot" issues to research. Low and behold, this new revision of ETDV contains exactly the list of topics I compiled! The Lord is listening to the questions and doubts of unbelievers and is calling His people to respond with the answers 1 Peter 3:15. This truly amazes me! God still honors the "Doubting Thomas" and offers them a touch of the evidence that truly demands a positive verdict.
