The main strength of this book is its thorough catalog of informal fallacies, accompanied by a glossary for easy reference. Although overtly Christian in tone, it is suitable for anyone interested in informal logic.
The church is permeated with people propagating pious notions of anti-intellictualism. While the intellect is not the be-all-end-all of the Christian life it is one of the most often neglected aspects of santification. The mind in scripture is the only thing that we renew. God supernaturally gives us a new heart, but gives us the enormous and exciting responsibilty for the renewing of the mind. Logic is one major aspect of this renewal. While emotions are central those emotions must not be irrational. Geisler and Brooks provide the framework by which we can decern the fallacies of foolish thinking and grasp the essential role of Logic in the life of the Christian. This book along with J.P. Moreland fine work "Loving God with All Your Mind" will serve as an antidote for our neglect of the mind.
Christianity has become intellectually bankrupt and we now have more frauds and cults than every before. We need to return to "loving God with all our mind." Learn to think critically an dtest all things with this book. Not just for the "Christian crowd," we all need a dose of logic and common sense.
