Hilarious nonsense !!! the only thing impossible about christianity is that people have fallen for yet another cult in human history. JP Holding is an idiot.

As a sometimes fan of JP Holding, I expected more. I was disappointed by "The Impossible Faith," and it's retread of old apologetics. I'm not sure what the explosive thesis is supposed to be- Holding contends, like many apologists have before him, that Christianity's expansion and evolution could only be attributed to a miracle, thereby attesting to Christianity's veridicality. This may have flown in Anselm's day, but not in the modern, statistics-infused world. Worldwide, there are 1 billion Catholics, 400 million Protestants, and 1 billion Muslims. If one accepts JP Holdings arguments, one might be led to convert to Islam rather than Holding's flavor of Christianity. At worst, using Holding's rubric, it's just as veridical as Christianity. As an apologetic, this falls flat.

The problem with the apologetic is not that it isn't well argued or even convincing--but that many who read this expect to be "convinced beyond faith". Christian apology is only there to present evidence that must be received with an open mind.
Far too many go into it already convinced that Christianity is mythological, and want to counter it. Why? because if Chrsitianity IS the true religion-- then the opponents would have to choose between Heaven and Hell! So it's better to find alternate arguments and writings that allow doubt or skepticism to be their defense.
Simply put-- Christianity takes faith - Apologetics simply attempts to erase some of the skepticism and open some of the closed minds. True seekers of truth will find it in the person of Jesus Christ.
