The book did start out a bit slow. But it soon picked up and ended with quite a finish. While the first book was strong on it's apologetic content (apologetics = defending the faith), this one was much more instructive in how to relate to a more emotional decision maker.
Both books make great gifts for friends who need encouraging in their faith or honest skeptics who are asking questions about spiritual things.
