God’s Not Dead was written for seekers, believers, and skeptics. Rice Broocks describes how God still exists in our time by quoting different people in their fields in the subjects of theology, history, philosophy, and science.
The introduction discusses what Broocks will prove in this book, Jesus’s story, and his own story. Each chapter has a complete summary at the end.
Some topics discussed are:
- How important scripture is and how it witnesses to the people.
- The life that God made was not an accident and has meaning and purpose.
Author- Rice Broocks is the author of several books and is the cofounder of the Every Nation family of churches. He has a doctorate from Fuller Theological Seminary.
My Thoughts- God’s Not Dead, by Rice Broocks, had a lot of potential, but fell short in my eyes.
I was excited when I read the description of this book. I thought I would learn a lot and have an interesting book to pass onto others, so we would know how to share how God is still alive in our world.
I was disappointed. While there was a lot of useful information, it was written in such a dry, stiff manner that I had a hard time reading the book. I know that Broocks has a great passion for God, but I didn’t just feel it in this book.
He wrote God’s Not Dead for seekers, believers, and skeptics, but the only group I believe who will gain from reading this are the skeptics. I would recommend this book to people who want to read a book for what it is.
