I am not convinced that Locke really proves the reasonableness of Christianity. He assumes many things that philosophers who followed him (e.g., David Hume) did not assume (e.g., the reality of miracles). Locke is an important figure in the genealogy of philosophy, but I wouldn't go to him first to see the reasonableness of Christianity.

Furthermore, Locke seems to enjoy taking shots at systematic theology. But, really, all he is doing in this book is his own systematic theology.
