Editorial Reviews

Harry Gensler
-- John Carroll University
"A witty and logical introduction to the groundbreaking work of Alvin Plantinga, who has done more than anyone else to restore in analytic circles the respectability of belief in God."

Kevin Timpe
-- University of San Diego
"A classic work in the philosophy of religion, Plantinga's God, Freedom, and Evil is the single most influential text on the problem of evil in the past fifty years."

Stephen T. Davis
-- Claremont McKenna College
"Alvin Plantinga is one of the top Christian philosophers in the world today. He is well known in Christian and secular philosophical circles for his logical skills, his rigorous arguments, and his energetic defense of full-blooded Christianity. This book covers some of the same ground as his more technical The Nature of Necessity, but unlike most of Plantinga's works, it is aimed at the general reader. . . Students can understand this book; they must only be willing to think as hard as they read."

    Although intended for the layman, Plantinga's writing style is dreadfully confusing. The common reader will have to read and re-read sections to understand the concepts posited. Mr. Plantina does, however, refute the atheist's claim that a holy God is incompatible with present evil. His arguments are consistent but he utilizes hypothetical worlds to substantiate his claims. Rather, he would have been more consistent and straightforward to simply assert the revealed truths of Scripture in the heritage of God's prophets and apostles. In any case, it is a valuable and interesting read, but only one familiar with linear logic should attempt to read it.
