Written by a philosopher who came back to God because without God love is just chemicals and all is meaningless. He weaves together a worldview that includes death, pain, suffering and choosing not God. It is an easy read. His arguments are clear and easy to follow.

It sounds like he would agree with Presuppositionalism and Reformed Epistemology to some degree. But he takes the non-rational approach too far. He also exemplifies some poor theology throughout. These two elements hold back an otherwise excellent book.
