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.

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.

If you find it difficult to defend your faith then this book will help bring that confidence and arm you with the philosophical, theological, historical and Biblical knowledge required to make your case.

If you are looking for somewhere to start your Christian apologetics reading, this is a good place to start. It is written in an accessible way and it provides a foundation upon which you can build your apologetics knowledge. It provides an outline of why we believe in the Christian faith, it demonstrates that our faith is anything but blind. A thoroughly enjoyable read.

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.

Having had personal dealings with some of the new breed of angry, aggressive atheist, I have found that they use highly specious, flaky and wholly questionable reasoning, which leads them to take the extreme position they do. As well as being an excellent resource for Christian apologetics "On Guard" presents a remarkably clear response to anyone who has been influenced by "new atheist" thinking, but who has a genuinely open mind. There is no blind faith involved in Craig's reasoning and, in my view, his logic is completely sound and his approach is solidly grounded in reality. Consequently this book is highly recommended...!!!

If you are interested in whether Christianity is true or not then this is a fantastic first step into that search. The book presents just some of the wealth of evidence (in a very understanable way) that points towards the Christian worldview as true.

Superb. Deep yet accessible. Be aware this is written for Christians trying to defend their faith to non believers, rather than being written for non believers themselves... Although the material could be easily adapted.
