Kreeft has selected the parts of Pascal's Pensees that are generally considered great and interesting, and most respond to the needs of today, and offer his own comments and insights on applying Pascal's wisdom to today's questions and problems. Kreeft, who has used Pascal's writings in his college courses for years, attempts to bring the reader into his college classroom where he and his students read, interpret and discuss "the beef" of the Pensees. Pascal's writings are very lively and eloquent as well as lyrical and incisive.
Addressed to modern skeptics and unbelievers, as well as to modern Christians for apologetics and self-examination, Pascal and Kreeft combine to provide a powerful witness to Chrisitan truth and goodness.

I first read the Pensees, took a class on his work, then read this book. This work by Peter Kreeft is the most concise and useful compendium of Pascal's work I have read - I have read much on Pascal. The explanations are easily understood, often pithy and mottled with Kreeft's penchant for humor. It is quite readable, and entertaining in places.Was this review helpful?
