Book Recommendation: Unpararlleled by Jared C. Wilson

   
 Unparalleled: How Christianity's Uniqueness Makes It Compelling by [Wilson, Jared C.]
     It will come as no surprise to my family and my church that I have a great interest in apologetics.  I read a lot in this area.  To be clear, apologetics is not the study of how to humbly seek forgiveness for wrongs one may have engaged in.  Biblestudy.com explains apologetics as:
     The meaning of the word Apologetics comes from the Greek apologia which means a 'defense' or 'answer.' Christian apologetics is the body of knowledge that defends the philosophical, historical and doctrinal truth of true Christianity against attacks by others who possess (usually) a very different belief system.
As you can imagine the study of Christian apologetics tends to include a lot of philosophical and theological terminology, theories and ideas.  To be honest, a lot of reading in apologetics can be boring and heady.  I appreciate the deep thinkers of Christian apologetics but every once in a while I come across a remarkably fulfilling presentation for reason to believe in Jesus Christ that is both weighty with evidence from a philosophical and theological perspective but presented in an accessible and impactful manner.  That was my experience with Jared C. Wilson's Unparalleled.  
      I wasn't sure what I was in for when I clicked on this title in my audible.com audiobook app this week.  I have read and appreciate Jared C. Wilson but was not familiar with this title or, to be honest, how I ended up with it in both my audiobook collection as well as my Kindle ebook collection.  So needless to say I was pleasantly surprised at what I discovered.  
     In this immensely attractive and amiable read I discovered a solid biblical defense of Christianity.  There was no pretension or attempt to seem overly spiritual.  Rather what you will find is a clear, articulate, reasonable, and biblical defense of the Christian faith.  
     Regardless of your current belief status whether it be sold-out Christ-follower, doubter, skeptic or adherent to another faith, I'd highly recommend Unparalleled to you.  You will be challenged to consider how Christianity is a truly unique faith that is, well, unparalleled.
