Reviews - What do customers think about Reason Enough: A Case for the Christian Faith?
Not a Fundie Sep 30, 2007
The copy I have read is actually from 1980, not 1985, and it is an adaptation of articles written in the 1970's. Antony Flew recently converted from atheism, but when this book was written, Flew was the equivalent of today's Richard Dawkins, or Christopher Hitchens, or Sam Harris. Pinnock gives the best answers to what today's athesists are saying, even before they said it, and I think he does it much better than many 21st Century Christians are doing. Although some of the mentioned films and such are no longer part of our popular culture, there is enough longevity to Pinnock's writing that it is great for today. Pinnock does not overplay the strengths in Christian or theistic arguments, but neither does he downplay them.
He is bold in one chapter to actually talk about the value of faith or religion in general, not just in Christianity in particular, even citing certain merits of Satanism or Wicca. He is no fundamentalist in his sparing use of Scripture, and is very well-read even outside of Christian literature.
The reading level does not require a full university education, as his work The Scripture Principle probably does. (I recently read that work as well, and loved it!) A good high school education will suffice for this one. I highly recommend Reason Enough, and I am curious what the 1997 edition has to offer compared to the older editions. What I know is that I can get more copies of the older edition for less money, and I plan to.
