This is a fine book on Christian apologetics. Kreeft and Tacelli are Roman Catholics, yet Protestants will learn a lot from the book, too. The book is layed out in a question and answer format: it lists objections against the Christian faith and then attempts to refute those objections. It goes on and on ad infinitum until the only answer left standing is the Christian one. When you read the book, it sounds like you're reading St Thomas. This book will be especially useful to the classical theist (I don't know of another book that's as comprehensive as Kreeft and Tacelli's). The one thing that bothered me about this book is that Kreeft and Tacelli talk as though they know everything about G-d. After reading through each chapter, I wondered where the mystery of G-d went. I got the impression that G-d is like a table or chair--something we can know everything about. This was disturbing, since the Christian tradition refers to G-d as 'Ultimate Mystery' and not 'Big Guy in the Sky.' This objection aside, a lot of Christians will like this book, though someone who no longer stands within the classical tradition, but who still wants to call himself a Christian, will want to look elsewhere (e.g., David Ray Griffin's 'Re-Enchantment without Supernaturalism').

This was an assigned book at the college I am attending, and I must say I am glad I read it. Like the other reviewers said, 'it is a well organized, logical defense of the Christian faith.'

Excellent. It covers most topics that an apologist would need to address.

This book is at once very informative, entertaining, lighthearted, profound and easy to read. It is written as a textbook with questions reviewing the chapters at the end. Unlike some books piting Catholics against Protestants this book joins both.
