It's a shame there is but one critical review of this book. Adorning praise such as "definitive work on Christian philosophy" and such would be humorous if in jest, yet sad and scary as sincere. Positivistic constructions of this sort are amusing, as if Kant, Kierkegaard, or even Plantinga ever wrote. This isn't meant to trivialize the work of these authors, but simply a recognition that their work can hardly be representative of the vast plurality, that to say, the - difference - Christian thought offers and has offered to philosophical thought and dialogue; most of which is hardly commensurable.

The glory of positivistic philosophy is in pretending to vanquish dissent and skepticism in the name of "Reason" while remaining particularly blind to its own contradictions and fallen self-interest. If we want more bricks in our castles of complacency, if we want to justify ourselves, and sit in smug assurance of our `truth,' read this work and enjoy! We can say the words, affirm the true, and even say "Lord, Lord" and still not know Him. (Matthew 7:21-23)

"One thing I will not do, not for anything in the world. I will not by suppression, or by performing tricks, try to produce the impression that the ordinary Christianity in the land and the Christianity of the New Testament are alike."

Kierkegaard

This quote is no less relevant to American Conservative Evangelicalism than to liberal Danish Lutheranism!
