5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to a number of theistic proofs., 9 Oct 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity (Paperback)
As other reviewers have indicated, Moreland surveys a number of theistic proofs and defends the core truth-claims of Christianity. The arguments are presented well and the author provides extensive references to the primary literature. The treatment of the Kalam Cosmological Argument (repopularized in the 1970s by William Lane Craig) deserves careful consideration by readers.

Perhaps the best book on Christian apologetics presently in print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cogent, 2 May 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity (Paperback)
Dr. Moreland offers an excellent presentation to theistic apologetics. The only flaw in this work seems to be the total ignoring of the Old Testament, with the exception of his comments on Genesis and science. Being that the Old Testament is absolutely essential to the Christian world view (Messianic prophecies; proto-evangelium, et al), it seems that this is a notable exception. This flaw is also found in William Lane Craig's, *Reasonable Faith* (Craig *completely* ignores the Old Testament). In all, it is still an excellent work worthy of any thinking person's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defense of Christianity, 13 April 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity (Paperback)
This book is a great defense of Christianity. I particularly enjoyed Moreland's presentation of the argument from mind for the existence of God. He also deals with issues concerning God and ethical systems as well as how science and religion should interact. A fine book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most excellent book on apologetics!, 28 Nov 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity (Paperback)
As a student of philosophy, I can say that Moreland wrote a tremendous intelligent book. The book is very clear and contains well written arguments. Especially on the argument from mind, I haven't find an author who defends substance dualism so well as Dr Moreland does. A real medicine for any polluted brain!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book on apologetics, 17 Jan 2005

This review is from: Scaling the Secular City: A Defense of Christianity (Paperback)
Read digest and use - I found the book a great encouragement when defending my faith. I can never remember all the arguments but it certainly gave me a lot of confidence to know there is nearly always a lucid defence to the Christian position. Moreland is a scholar that even this engineer could understand and compute.
