Terrific book. I borrowed this from the library, but I definitely need my own copy now. A great reference for comparing philosophies and competing worldviews. I have yet to find the Christian faith laid out so thoroughly.
This book simply fails. It misrepresents several of the worldviews it attempts to undermine, and for most of them it doesn't adequately logically refute them (though it claims to). But if you read this without a critical eye, it's easy enough to get past that. The real disappointment will hit you if you're a Christian hoping to find a solid adequate defense of Christianity. You want find it. It's more or less the same old arguments reworked that have already been adequately rebutted. He asserts that everything except God is a contingent being by nature. Whereas God is a necessary being. What about matter/energy? How can he say that's not necessary? Even logically prior to the big bang, matter/energy still existed. There is no known or accepted realm in cosmology at any time when there was "nothing" from which God could create something. Matter/energy is eternal, not contingent. His other arguments are equally unconvincing and weak.
Geisler defends the Christian faith. He starts with methodology and tries to find a criterion for truth. Then he goes on to theistic apologetics, and defends a theistic worldview. The last part deals with Christian apologetics. He deals with the deity and authority of Jesus Christ. And he also deals with the inspiration and authority of the Bible.
