Leading Experts on Christian Apologetics Recommend “Unreasonable Faith”

Leading Experts on Christian Apologetics Recommend “Unreasonable Faith” June 29, 2018

Jesus historicity expert Richard Carrier and John Loftus, a former student of noted Christian apologist William Lane Craig, have formally recommended Unreasonable Faith: How William Lane Craig Overstates the Case of Christianity.

Two experts comment on Unreasonable Faith
This is high praise, indeed!

Carrier, who has a doctorate in ancient history from Columbia University and a history of debating Craig, called the book an “excellent destruction of W.L. Craig’s entire apologetics.” Here’s the remaining portion of Carrier’s blurb for the book:

“Precise and yet easily understood explanations expose the flawed assumptions and false claims underlying Craig’s every apologetic, and often document his actual lack of rigor or logical coherence. Fodor’s treatment of physics, mathematics, philosophy, and history are all spot on and informative. Cogently argued and factually accurate, this is required reading for anyone keen to question the soundness of anything W.L. Craig has argued over the decades. Which makes it an invaluable resource for refuting Christian apologetics generally.”

Loftus, who has written or edited 10 works, including Why I Became an Atheist and The Christian Delusion, graduated under Craig at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in 1985 with a ThM in the Philosophy of Religion. He said he “heartily” endorses James Fodor’s “well-researched and excellently argued book length critique” of Craig’s aplogetics. He also said the following:

“It’s surprising that apologists like Craig need rebutted after David Hume, Charles Darwin, and David Friedrich Strauss, but if you’re still not convinced and only want to buy one book, then get this one!

Unreasonable Faith is the second book to be published by my own Hypatia Press, coming after the release of How To Be Reasonable: By Someone Who Tried Everything Else. Unreasonable Faith is written by James Fodor, a graduate degree in physics from the University of Melbourne.

If you still haven’t checked out the book, hopefully these important endorsements will help you!
