Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very well written...very well thought out! Everyone should read this book...no matter what the religious or philosophical bias may be. Dr. Kreeft brilliantly brings Socrates back to life in the 20th century and shows just how relevant the 'Socratic Method' is for our day! Socrates uses logic and dialogue to find that Jesus is real and who He claimed to be!
