the Author

William Lane Craig is Analysis Professor of Philosophy at the Talbot School of Theology. With earned doctorates in philosophy and theology, he has built a reputation as one of the most notable Christian scholars of our day.

His publications, debates, and internet presence have turned him into a visible supporter the Christian faith. His seminary textbook, Reasonable Faith, is broadly regarded as one of the best books about Christian apologetics today.



Being an electronic engineer, I must say that the logic and reasoning used by Dr. Craig in this book is completely mind blowing.

Also, holding a bachelor degree in Theology makes it necessary for me to say I am not embarrassed to realize that I learned a lot reading this work.

On Guard by William Lane Craig has ten chapters that cover the following topics:

  1. What is apologetics?
  2. What difference does it make if God exists?
  3. Why does anything at all exist?
  4. Why did the universe begin?
  5. Why is the universe fine-tuned for life?
  6. Can we be good without God?
  7. What about suffering?
  8. Who was Jesus?
  9. Did Jesus rise from the dead?
  10. Is Jesus the only way to God?

I suggest On Guard by William Lane Craig to readers that want to have a better understanding of Christianity. It is the best work of Christian apologetics that I’ve read so far.

With direct and straightforward language, and a well-organized sequence of topics he follows precise logic and reasoning.

The publishers were very kind to send me a copy of this amazing work for an uncompromised book review.
