5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Changed My Life, March 1, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Reasonable Faith: Christian Truth and Apologetics (Paperback)
Not too long ago, I went through a period of serious soul-searching. Something in me told me that God was truth, but I didn't have strong answers to many of the tough questions that troubled me. I had heard atheists make seemingly-good arguments against the existence of God or the truth of Christianity. I had also heard Christians make seemingly-good points, but in my ignorance I struggled to discern the truth between the two opposing views. I eventually bought and read a book based on a debate between William Lane Craig and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong. Never before had I seen Christianity defended with such strong philosophical, logical, scientific and historical arguments. I was filled with an intellectual hunger for more information that brought me to this book.

Reasonable Faith has affected me more than any other book except the Bible. It won't answer every question, nor does it try to do so, but it gives the reader a strong foundation for the further study of Christian apologetics. William Lane Craig guides the reader through the history of theological thought, arguments for the existence of God, arguments for the Christian God and historical arguments for the historicity of the risen Christ. His writing style is fluid, captivating, and expresses difficult subject matter in an easily-understood way. His philosophical arguments for natural theology are especially devastating to the naturalistic worldview.

If you only own one book on Christian apologetics or philosophy, it must be this one. I thank God for William Lane Craig's ministry.

Wonderful review which I identify with strongly. Over the past 4 years I have struggled with a similar thought pattern and attempting "rationally" to come to terms with what I'm sure a lot people undertake as their quest for truth. After about a year post-conversion I am looking for an introductory work to classical Christian theology and also works on philosophical introduction. After listening to many of Dr. Craig's lectures, debates, and interviews I have come to Amazon in search of such works and you have summed up nicely the preminince of this work amongst other works. Very valuable review for someone without much of a guide searching in a sea of books and authors that tend to overwhelm someone to the point of polarization. There are so many books in the Christian genre covering many topics it's hard to get a feel for the direction a new convert should responsibly take. Many reviews are so limited in scope of praise or criticism, or too involved with presuppositions to knowledge, this was refreshingly deft, and synchronistic to my experience.
