More About the Author

I am the Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. With my wife Jan, we have two grown children.

At the age of sixteen as a junior in high school, I first heard the message of the Christian gospel and yielded my life to Christ. I pursued undergraduate studies at Wheaton College (B.A. 1971) and graduate studies at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.A. 1974; M.A. 1975), the University of Birmingham (England) (Ph.D. 1977), and the University of Munich (Germany) (D.Theol. 1984). From 1980-86 I taught Philosophy of Religion at Trinity, during which time we started our family. In 1987 we moved to Brussels, Belgium, where I pursued research at the University of Louvain until assuming my position at Talbot in 1994.

I have authored or edited over thirty books, including The Kalam Cosmological Argument; Assessing the New Testament Evidence for the Historicity of the Resurrection of Jesus; Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom; Theism, Atheism and Big Bang Cosmology; and God, Time and Eternity, as well as over a hundred articles in professional journals of philosophy and theology, including Philosophia Christi, The Journal of Philosophy, New Testament Studies, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, American Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Studies, Philosophy, and British Journal for Philosophy of Science.

Format: Paperback
This books is great in multiple ways. First of all, it presents all of the versions of the argument spoken about in the text in a way that will deepen one's understanding of the cosmological arguments that have been given by the great thinkers through history. Second, it will spark one's interest in researching the topic even further. Third, it is a great companion book to any philosophy of religion course that takes a look at the cosmological argument. As a student of philosophy, I give it two thumbs up.

For those of higher learning, this is a book that will explain how the philosophers from Plato to Leibniz speak of the cosmological argument even when the early philosophers were not even intending to prove theism.

As one who has little training in philosophy and the cosmological argument, I found this book extremely helpful. From the beginning, in the preface, Craig simply summarizes the cosmological concept in a few points, and he explains the strengths and weakness of the book itself. As for the rest of the book, Craig is great at bringing the arguments of the philosopher into both the context of the times of the philosopher and the matter of theism. If the essay discussion of the arguments seem confusing, Craig outlines the argument after each discussion to summarize the points. By reading this book with patience and an application of logic one can discover the causes from the natural world that point towards God and the character of God.

I like the way William Lane Craig has wrote the book it is so clear and easy to understand. He has also covered the issues he discussing adequately i feel.

Comprehensive and rigorous (and a goof reference if one is interested in such cosmological arguments)
