I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it is really good! it is aimed at Christians who want to know what to say to all the difficult questions people raise. It would also be very valuable for someone who just wanted to know why Christians believe what they do. Easy to read. Extremely well laid out. All in all a great read.

Craig walks step by step through the main arguments he uses in public debate with his atheist critics. His style is very readable and suited to the beginner. And a helpful side effect I learned more about the basic rules in putting together a logical argument. If you like to write in books, buy the paperback as you'll want to underline and return to this over and over again. Very useful to have on your Kindle. I also highly recommend watching Craig go through each argument on YouTube.

He provides a great shot in the arm for believers who want to know if their faith is intellectually and scientifically reasonable. It is.

William Lane Craig is a leading Christian apologist and has distilled his arguments to be more accessible. Anyone with a sixth form education should be able to understand this book and it would make an excellent present for those going to university. He covers these topics:

1. What is apologetics?
2. What difference does it make if God exists?
3. Why does anything at all exist?
4. Why did the universe begin?
5. Why is the universe fine tuned for life?
6. Can we be good without God?
7. What about suffering?
8. Who was Jesus?
9. Did Jesus rise from the dead?
10. Is Jesus the only way to God?

For a more in depth treatment see Craig's book Reasonable Faith (Christian Truth and Apologetics)

NB. All that is required in apologetics, is to show that Christianity is reasonable, nothing more.

Covers similar ground to Reasonable Faith, but at a more popular level. Opens up a whole range of evidence, some of the arguments round the ressurrection are really strong but not obvious unless you know the context in the Jewish/Roman world of the time.

I really enjoyed On Guard. I thought it'd be pretty technical and dry but it isn't at all. It's written in simple, straightforward language,
and Dr Craig's passion for philosophy and apologetics shines through every page - you can tell he really loves this subject! The book contains some very nice (and helpful) illustrations.
If you're a Christian, it'll bolster your faith; if you're an agnostic/atheist, it'll challenge your world-view - no doubt about it.
Criticism of the book? Personally, no. Some folks might prefer something more scholarly.
In sum, On Guard is a very readable popular level book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested in defending biblical Christianity.
If you haven't seen Craig in public debate mode, you might like to check out his various videos - he's an impressive debater. A good place to start is the 'William Lane Craig vs Frank Zindler' debate on YouTube.

I am a Christian. I like books of apologetics. I admire William Lane Craig, so I was looking forward to this book. But I found it a bit thin. I much prefer Contending with Christianity's Critics. If you're looking to a straightforward introduction to apologetics this book is fine.

This is a very accessible guide to Christian apologetics. Clear and persuasive arguments along with some insight into William Lane Craig's personal journey of faith. I found the final chapter on Religious Pluralism less convincing but otherwise this is a very useful introduction to the key issues.
