"They give a good look into the condition of the field, and bring to the forefront presuppositions shaping contemporary inquiry." (Reviews in Religion & Theology, 2011)
"If natural theology is overdue for a comeback, this work will help it on its way, and, for skeptical readers, there is much here to go on thinking about for months to come (making it a good catalyst for intelligent debate)." (Reference Reviews, February 2010)
"All of these essays show sophistication and deserve wide attention. Common objections to the theistic arguments are considered and logical proofs are helpfully provided when appropriate." (Religious Studies Review, June 2010)
"Laudable and timely." (Church Times, January 2010)
"The Companion contains papers on a rich diversity of topics that are representative of the new natural theology that emerged in the 1970s with books by Alvin Plantinga, William Craig and others. The rapidly evolving lines of thought are increasingly influential in the field of philosophy and the essays in this collection are "cutting edge" works, such as the very recent formulation of a new version of the ontological argument for God's existence by Robert Maydole. The high quality of the essays make this book required reading for philosophers of religion and its diverse topics will interest thinkers in many fields."
–Quentin Smith, Western Michigan University
"This collection is a major contribution to the intellectual discussion of classical theism. Its philosophically sophisticated essays provide essential background reading for all those engaged in serious debate about the rationality of belief in God today."
–John F. Haught, Georgetown University
"I used to think natural theology was a dead area and not worthy of mourning. The scholarship represented by this volume has convinced me I was wrong. The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology aptly demonstrates why natural theology has become an exciting scholarly area again. These essays combine cutting-edge philosophy with recent scientific advancements to provide a thorough, timely resource balancing confidence and humility, rigour and readability."
–Justin L. Barrett, University of Oxford

For serious students, this may be a definitive work.
One caveat though. The chapter, late in the book, which includes modal logic is a total botch typographically. Someone without any knowledge of symbolic logic did a transfer that mismapped technical terms into the copyright symbol and other complete nonsense. All but inexcusable, but easily fixed. If the original symbol set isn't available on some Kindle platforms, there are workarounds. This really needs to be fixed.
I like the Bayes test on this subject in several articles, and the good atrtention that is given to the objections.
You get the feeling to listen to a very interesting debate, without the bias of emotion.
