Book Review: Unapologetic by Francis Spufford

Someone mentioned Unapologetic on Twitter as being a good read, so I thought why not?

Unapologetic is a gritty honest book.  It is billed as a “defence of Christian belief taking on Dawkins’ The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchens’ God is not Great.”  It’s not about arguing that Christianity is true, it’s an emotional response.  This is does very well.

The basis of the argument is the HPtFtU (and you’ll find out what that means if you read the book).  It uses this basis very powerfully.

I found the first couple of chapters difficult to get in to, but by chapter 5, Yeshua, wow – so powerful!

This book pulls no punches.  The language is “colourful” in places, but that is where its coming from.  It gives a fresh look at what can be a crusty subject.

I borrowed it from the library.  I have now bought a copy – that probably tells you all you need to know.

  1. I’d also seen it on Twitter nd was wondering – but decided against buying. Don’t know why I didn’t think of the library – I’ll order it next time I’m in there.
