This is probably the best book on apologetics that I have ever read! Craig is the embodiment of modern scholarship. Reasonable Faith is a must for anyone looking for a good, solid representation of the Christian world view. The book will challenge the beginner as well as the veteran and I highly recommend it for anyone seeking a solid book on the subject.

I am 92.6 percent of the way through the book. It, so far is awesome. It takes quite assiduous concentration to fully understand the concepts. Be ready to be challenged. He is definitely erudite.

OK Our personal experience shapes how we view the external world, so how can you say someone is wrong because they don't feel the way you about life? While Craig's book purports to be a logical defense of faith, I found it incredibly preachy. I was particularly offended by his judgment that life is absurd without God, while sure I may find it relatively meaningless, it's far too subjective. This sort of aggressive language hinders his message, in my opinion, which is often very grounded in scientific understanding and academic understanding of the Bible. In my path to find reason for God, I have found better arguments by Wolterstorff in Reason within the Bounds of Religion (PBK) and in Eleonore Stump's collection of essays in Reasoned Faith.

Amazing book, great sequel to "On Guard" expect that it is more narrow in scope however requires more mind power to process. There were certain things I have struggled with that I have always thought about that he eloquently lays out and analyzes in ways that I never though especially in the De Fide and De Creatione section just as his analysis of Christian particularism in "On Guard." Overall the book is full of information and takes a while for it to fully sink in.

This is an excellently written book. It's refreshing to read this type of book, which is more intellectual and scholarly than say a book by pop feel-good wishy-washy one-book-a-month author Max Lucado, who easily insults my intelligence. Get this book, and then actually learn something!

I have been a Christian most of my life with questions of the "proof" of my beliefs beyond just the feel good presence of faith. This book has challenged my theology, given me a basis for being able to stand completely firm in my beliefs by providing foundational truths, and proof to the fact that my God exists and provides a pathway to heaven! Thank you William Lane Craig! for giving me the answers to the questions I have been longing for!

The arguments advanced in this book have been refuted so many times by so many thinkers, that it is incomprehensible that anyone would still use them. Simply do a google search of "refuting william lane craig", you will then see how weak his arguments are. You will also save some money.
