More About the Author
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.

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.
