Enjoyed reading this one so simply yet so beautifully written It reminded me of what we as Christians truly believe in Encouraging for anyone, whether you are beginning to see God s light or you are further along the journey. Peter Kreeft is a Catholic, and unfortunately some of the things he believes and espouses in this book are not the things I believe, and it gets in the way of what he is trying to say Obviousley he is an evidentialist as well, which I think is fine, we can learn from both the presups and the classicals, its just a heads up to a potential reader He uses a very logical, step by step approach to each argument, which is helpful, but he includes even arguments or variations of arguments it seems only to be inclusive, or to prove that something is true simply from the number of ways to prove it, but by doing that he includes many arguments that aren t very sound, sort of wasted space in my opinion Having read the longer version of this book I can say that whoever condensed it did a good job, the essential arguments that were in the longer book are adequately preserved in this shorter one.
