The reason to read this book is to become aware of what philosophies and logic are consistent to teachings in the word of God and what is not. This work will better prepare the reader to comprehend Christian apologetic works. This book can equip the Christian to avoid the temptations of higher criticism. To anchor ones thought process to the word of God. This book should be read before one attempts to read Geislers book on Christian Apologetics or another textbook on Christian Apologetics. I plan on reading Geislers work on logic before rereading his apologetics work. This text does discuss methodology and logic sufficient to understand the rest of the text, but further understanding of logic may be needed to less difficulty comprehending the apologetics text.
