Written in simple, clear and yet lyrical prose, the book is able to get the reader's attention, and delight as well as inspire. Warmly recommended especially for students and those planning their careers.
Platinga, thoughtfully drives home the reason why christian Education is so important. He engages the reader with his honesty about the plight and hope for the world's restoration-through vocation. However, Platinga and other writers out there believe that Christian Education(attending Christian colleges) is the only way to rebuild God's kingdom. He states: " But I fear that for most Christian students, mainstream higher education simply won't be adequate to help them understand the kingdom of God..."(123). I understand why he said this, but there are schools commited to the justice and social cause of the world like Walden University. Yet, even Platinga mentions that all could be advancing the kingdom without ever knowing it.
All in all this book is perfect college students taking religion or philosophy and its great to study at home on your own time.
