Came up short in several ways
on April 20, 2007
Like several others, I did not realize that this was not a full version of the book.
Beyond that, I really did not find the book valuable at all. I thought he created the illusion of exploring these topics open-mindedly, but once a cursory introduction of the "problem" was introduced, he seemed to race down the evangelical Christian explanation with little or no attention to major counterarguments or exceptions. Many times I felt I was led down a slippery slope, where each point led to the next, but none were well established and the topic was very one-sided.
For many, you will love this book and find my review completely off base. But I approached this book as a philosopher who is a Christian, not as a Christian who wants to be aware of a little philosophy but has no real willingness to challenge core beliefs.
