I just finished 'Truth, Knowledge and the Reason for God: The Defense of the Rational Assurance of Christianity' today! I am extremely enthused about this book. The author's knowledge is very insightful and anyone can learn something from it, whether religious or not. After reading, I have a new found appreciation for God and all the beautiful evidence around us that he exists. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone!

Format: Paperback
This book is not one I would normally read, but was recommended it by a friend, who new life had not been easy of late and my faith in many things had tested.

One thing I found straight away is, it's an easy book to read and get in to, with the author taking a refreshing approach in explaining the existence of god, backed up by some positive research and highlighting some key points such as

Demonstrate the impossibility of atheism
Intellectually overcome unbelieving philosophy
Refute aggressive unbelief through persuasive evidence
Expose the flaws of Stephen Hawking's Self-created Cosmos hypothesis
Provide thoughtful answers to the problem of evil
Apply the newest apologetic research in contending for Christianity.

Overall this was an interesting read, which I have to say made me think again about my own beliefs, a worthy read.

Format: Paperback
I intend to shatter this script; though one would be hard pressed to prove that this script is worthy of response? In most cases it's simply better to leave fanatics alone.

Proof of Robinson's fanaticism:
"It is impossible for the Christian world view to be wrong." Pg.70
"It is impossible for God not to exist." Ibid.
(And again, just to be sure we get his point)
"It is impossible for God not to exist." Pg.71

If we take these assertions seriously, then it doesn't matter what one can prove, Robinson has already made up his mind, long before any discourse, that "nothing" can refute what he believes, no matter how authentic, not matter how violent the contradiction Robinson will still assert that his position is true! That is to say, even if one legitimately refuted Robinson-- Robinson would still claim that the refutation was illegitimate, because of course, for his system, refutation is declared to be "impossible." Consider Robinson's response if the same claim was made by a Muslim or an Atheist? Would he validate the form of the argument?

Please note: Robinson's position is not a position of probability, but he actually claims infallible certainly:

"I agree with Van til's admission [which is no surprise seeing Robinson merely rehashes Van til's arguments]: The argument for the existence of God and for the truth of Christianity is objectively valid. We should not tone down the validity of this argument to the probability level. The argument may be poorly stated, and may never adequately stated. But in itself the argument is absolutely sound." Introduction Pg.xiv

"...I know that God certainly exists..." Pg.70 [Which should read, "I know that my specific concept of God certainly exists.
