I will continue to add on to this review as I read further, but for right now this book is excellent.

I'm happy to see some names that I've never particularly heard about to join into today's debate in regards to Christian apologetics, as well as names that I've heard about (Matthew Flannagan and MaryJo Sharp) in which I'm glad to see an essay from.

We have three elite Christian apologists in William Lane Craig, JP Moreland and Paul Copan.

Gregory Ganssle who is a Lecturer in Philosophy at Yale as well as Mark Foreman who is a professor of philosophy and religion at Liberty University

We have great Bible scholars in Gary Habermas, Mike Licona, Richard Hess and Craig Keener

One of the topics I was interested in before even reading this book was Dr. Craig's essay regarding the top 10 layman objections to the Kalam Cosmological Argument. Dr. Craig addresses these horrific arguments against the credibility of the KCA that one usually hears from village atheists which in conclusion WLC dismantles these layman criticisms with ease.

I was also looking forward to JP Moreland's 4 degrees of postmodernism as well.

The only thing missing is that we do not see anything from philosophers Alvin Plantinga, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Alexander Pruss or Richard Swinburne (though three of them are mentioned). Although it still doesn't take anything away from this book, as I'm seeing some great contributions from lesser known apologists such as Michael Edens and Barbara Pemberton.

Topics include:

The credibility of Authorship in the NT

Flaws of Naturalism

Four degrees of Postmodernism

The Divine Hiddeness of God

Did God command genocide on the Caananites?

Many at first, thought that the arrival of the nasty New atheists was a curse to the world, but it turns out that the belligerent new atheists helped spur a massive resurgence of christian apologetics. the goal of destruction only helped prompt masses of people into apologetics and the world gets a tremendous amount of fresh apologetic material. And that's one of the nice things about Copan's and Craig's "Come let Us Reason," new and fresh insights from a host of apologists and philosophers.
many atheists declare that Christianity is opposed to reason. they try to tell us that faith is unreasonable--simply an illusionary. They follow Freud who said that people of faith are fearful of reason when it scrutinizes religion- he said "where questions of religion are concerned, people are guilty of every possible kind of insincerity and intellectual misdemeanor." But when I have spoken with scoffers, atheists, and agnostics, I have found the most nasty ones are guilty of logical offenses. these intellectual outlaws not only despise the scrutiny of reason and revelation, but generally throw mere bombast and then take off as they run when the heat of truth is brought to bear on their view of reality.

in "come Let us reason' you get 19 good essays that are very easy to understand and help arm you to share the truth with nonChristians. This book is endorsed by rick warren, craig hazen, and lee strobel.

Format: Paperback
Since the first century, the church has been involved in one way or another in the ministry of apologetics. Within the last few decades, as atheists have seemed to ramp up their religious efforts to discredit and eradicate the belief in God and Christianity more specifically, Christians have ramped up their apologetical focus with matching intensity.

Among the many contemporary apologists Paul Copan, current president of the Evangelical Philosophical Society, and William Lane Craig, perhaps the most well-known and active Christian apologists debater, have teamed up to edit a series of books that seek to address many of the contemporary issues within Christian apologetics. Passionate Conviction: Contemporary Discourses on Christian Apologetics and Contending With Christianity's Critics: Answering New Atheists and Other Objectors were the precursors to the third book in the series Come Let Us Reason: New Essays in Christian Apologetics. All three books are edited by Copan and Craig and each with different contributors.

As the subtitle indicates the book is a collection of essays (sixteen in all) which focus on the areas of apologetics and culture, God, the historical Jesus and New Testament reliability, Ancient Israel and ANE religions and Christianity and other religions such as Islam. Since there is no one theme that is developed throughout the book this review will provide some general thoughts on the book overall with some comments on specific chapters.

First, while the ministry of apologetics throughout Christian history has been dominated by men, this book features two women contributors and one chapter by Toni Allen dedicated to understanding how to train women in apologetics.
