The five sessions are as follows:
Session 1--What about Truth and the Bible?
Session 2--What about Jesus?
Session 3--What about other Faiths?
Session 4--What about Creation?
Session 5--What about Suffering?
Joe Boot is the executive director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministry in Toronto (www.rzim.org). J. John is a motivational speaker who helps people see the spiritual dimension and purpose of everyday life.
One of several DVDs from the Philo Trust, whose mission is “to show how faith in Jesus Christ is not only reasonable but relevant and vitally important,” With No Apology features motivational speaker J. John driving around London in the company of Canadian Joe Boot (an intense, Johnny Depp-look-alike), who serves up rapid-fire responses in regard to life’s deepest questions. The program is divided into five professionally produced segments – “What About Truth and the Bible?” “What About Jesus?” “What About Other Faiths?” “What About Creation?” and “What About Suffering?” – each following a question and answer format, with onscreen inserts defining key terms, citing biblical passages, and identifying authorities who are quoted. Slickly produced, fast-paced, and loaded with philosophical terms and biblical references, the material is fairly dense (a PDf discussion guide is also available online), but sure to appeal to intellectually curious young adults. With No Apology does not represent all Christian beliefs (particularly the segment dealing with creation); however, this would be a first-rate resource for evangelical Christians or religious studies groups interested in exploring their views. Highly Recommended.
With No Apology is the best presentation of the foundations for Christianity. In five sessions, shot during five intriguing taxi journeys in London, Joe Boot, executive director of Ravi Zacharias International Ministry, presents clear, brilliant, incisive, effective answers to life’s hardest questions. Joe is responding to very sincere questions posed by J. John. In the first session, “What about Truth and the Bible,” Joe shows very effectively that the truth of the Bible is the only thing that can make sense of the world in which we live. He exposes the weaknesses of relativism and of several false religions. In the second session, Joe shows clearly why Jesus had to be fully God and fully Man. In the third session, Joe shows the weaknesses in either religious systems. In the fourth, he makes a brilliant case for creation. And in the fifth, he answers the most difficulty questions of all, about pain and suffering. This clear, direct, effective apologetics is so good that I would love to how it to my non-believing friends. Other attempts at VD apologetics have had embarrassing moments. This has none. It is wells reasoned on a popular level and effective on an intellectual level. MOVIEGUIDE highly recommends With No Apology.
This film presents an offbeat setting as a forum for a long-standing debate. Filmed as a series of five rides in a taxi cab, the movie records the dialogue between Joe Boot and J. John as they probe key issues related to Christianity and life in general. Obviously, these presentations are truncated because some of the topics (such as the reliability of Scripture and the divinity of Christ) could go on for hours, even days. Nevertheless, the film presents the central points of each issue with biblical references as support. Whenever the speakers drop into church jargon, the terms are immediately defined for the viewers; and references are cited, so people can take notes and follow along in their Bibles. Whereas no secondary debates amid denominational groups are highlighted, the foundational aspects of Christianity are addressed. This is a content-heavy film, despite its bizarre setting. The film and sound quality are excellent, the pace maintain proper momentum, and the information provided is solid and easily understood by older teens and adults. Any library that supplies materials for Sunday school classes, home Bible studies, or discussion groups would benefit its patrons by having a copy of this DVD available by checkout.
