Reviews - What do customers think about The Thinker's Guide to God (Thinker's Guide)?
interesting and informative basic work on "God" May 11, 2007
this introductory work aims to hit the main issues dealing with the subject of "God". Tackles philosophical and theological areas of inquiry, covering a surprising amount of ground for it's size. Not an easy read per se, but manageable for beginners who are willing to use and exert a some brain power. A good book to get your philosophical and theological gears turning.
Great book, so far May 31, 2006
This is the book I've been looking for all these years. It comes as close to not taking sides and presenting both sides as any book I've ever seen. Unfortunately, my father borrowed it from me and I'm going to have to wait for the last half. Dad seems to have relocated his love of reading and even decided to banish the TV a couple of nights a week after picking up this book.
Compelling argument for the existence of God Jul 25, 2004
I picked up this book because I wanted to give faith another chance in my life. While I'm not completely conviced yet (no book should change you overnight), I am more likely to believe after reading this book. It's lean on pages, but thick on information. The authors of this book set out their case by comparing and contrasting arguments against the existence of God. As you'd expect, no argument against God cannot be countered with one for God. This book uses a very intellectual and philosphic approach to both sides of the case. It has chapters that touch on the arguments for the existence of God, attacks on God, the attributes of God, life after death, God and science, and several others. The result is a book that will sway you, if you, like me, lost faith solely because science didn't add up with religion.
