I felt he covered some of the issues better than others. In particular, I enjoyed the chapters on "Science & Christianity" and "The New Age" giving me information I previously lacked.
Some of the chapters provided me with confidence that my own thinking on the matter was aligned, particularly "Sex before Marriage" and "Homosexuality".
And then there were a couple that I was a little disappointed in. In particular, "Suffering" I felt was written to a Christian audience rather than a non-believer. I don't think Gumbel addressed the issue of "why is suffering happening to me?" Yes, it may be the fact that someone is exercising their choose to be hurtful and cruel, so, for example, when crimes are committed against others. But I don't think he addressed the perspective of the person suffering. Yes, a crime was committed by why on them?
But a very useful small book that I expect I will refer to again on some of the matters covered.
Definitely worth a read.
Note: I read the 1998 edition so this 2011 updated version may have addressed some of my concerns.
