Geisler begins his little book with a chapter of definitions. He then proceeds to layout his version of the Ontological Argument in 18 steps (and some sub-steps). Following this layout, he summarizes the argument in 5 steps. Next, following the summary he goes back to the longer argument and briefly (a couple of sentences) discusses each step, drawing it out in a little more detail. He ends with a chapter addressing challenges to the argument (again very briefly) and a few other broad questions concerning the rationality of belief in God.
Although very short, the book can be read in an hour or two, Dr. Geisler manages to accomplish his purpose of specifying and explaining the Ontological argument. Not at all an exhaustive examination of this argument either historically or in various of its forms. It is an excellent reference to and summary of the argument, a handy little book for a philosophy student to keep in her back pocket!
Second, I didn't find it well-defended (Note that I am speaking from a theist perspective here). It treated many issues too simply for me at least (blame my critical philosophy background).
Other than that, I do usually like Norman Geisler. But this book was just disappointing for me. I would recommend spending on other apologetics books instead. Sorry.
