4.0 out of 5 stars Missing a piece of the puzzle, September 11, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Reason for the Hope Within (Paperback)
One of the intentions of RFTHW was to "put the work of recent Christian philosophy into a format that would make it accessible to the lay person." While I am sure it succeeds to some degree in this endevour the clear abscence of C. Stephen Evans is truly disappointing. To ignore the writings of one of todays most eminent Christian philosophers is indeed disconcerting. I wonder if Murray and his fellow graduate students even considered including Evan's work as they sat around lamenting that no one had written their book yet. All of this is not to say that I would not recommend Murray's book to those seeking a weighty defence of the faith. However, RFTHW lacks several pounds in that defence with the exclusion of C Stephen Evans.

I dont think is fair to say that a bool is incomplete simply because the authors did not wish to include one philosopher.. yes I do agree with you. C Stephen Evans in a great philosopher, but so is William Lane Craig, RicharD Swinborne, John Lennix and many more. And the fact that their articles are not listed n this book does not mean that the book is incomplete in any way. And forgive me if I dont agree with you, but I would say that the works of Alvin Plantinga and Richard Swinborne are far superior than those of Evans..
