Endorsements & Reviews

"Professor Hasker has produced an excellent introduction to metaphysics which avoids oversimplification and dognmatism, assesses major positions, takes some controversial stances, and is alert to the theological implications of metaphysical viewpoints."

—Keith E. Yandell, University of Wisconsin

"A fine introduction to both the subject matter and the process of doing philosophy as a Christian. It offers a blend of the analytic and personal which is too rarely found in contemporary philosophy." —Don C. Postema, Bethel College

"Christians who want to love God with their minds will welcome Hasker's lucid introduction to the nature of metaphysical thinking."

—Clark H. Pinnock, McMaster Divinity College
