For a person who has grown up in the television age and not used to rational thinking (90% of America), this book is pivotal for an understanding of logic. Upon first glance this book is hard to read because we are not used to thinking in terms of complex propositions. And, like any textbook, the more that you put into it, the more you will get out. An understanding of loigc is necessary for even a superficial reading of the Bible. St. Paul in every sentence is using logic to its deadly effect....more

Geisler does a great job at making logic a lot easier to understand. The examples are all from the bible,theology and apologetics because it was written with Christians in mind. This book only goes into the very basics of logic. If you came onto the book thinking that there was going to be modal logic,predicate logic or any other more advanced topics in logic then you will be very disappointed. This book is a starting point and from this book you can move up the ladder to other logic texts.

For me, this was a good "refresher" course on Logic - and even better to get it in a Christian Apologetic framework.

There would be much benefit if more Christians were to come to understand the mechanics behind "reasoning", thus they would be able to put forward better arguments - I direct this at myself as well. Even though I have a Mathematical background, it is easy to get caught up in the emotional side of things and to make many of the "fallacies" explained in this book.

I honestly did not know what to expect when I opened this book. It claims to be a christian book that could be used in a course on Introduction to Logic - that is, a christian logic textbook. It is just that. No book is perfect, and this one has its share of failures. However, It covers most of the important aspects that would be needed in an introduction to logic, and then some. Many of the examples come from the Bible, or theological debate. Each chapter is followed by a number of exercises th...more

For those who aren't familiar with the study of logic, this is a good primer to start that endeavor. He discusses the proper and improper construction of logical argumentation as well as the basic laws of logic and their fallacies. There were some things in this book that it could have done without (such as the co-authors attempt to be humorous). Other than that and whether or not you agree with Geisler's theological stances, it would be beneficial to give this a read.

A good introduction to semi-formal logic. Somewhat disconcerting in it's opening thesis which suggests a reading of John chapter one which reads, "In the beginning was the Logic." Nonetheless a good read for those wishing to encounter a Christian understanding of largely Platonic logic.
Christian Proano
A must read twice and reviewing for refresh from time to time. This is an excellent book.
