Recently, Time magazine reported that "God is making a comeback. Most intriguingly . . . in the crisp, intellectual circles of academic philosophers." Who are these tough-minded intellectuals, and why have they embraced Christian belief? In this book, Mortimer Adler, Alvin Plantinga, Richard Swinburne, and others confront this question with unusual candor, warmth, and brilliance.

Eleven American, British, and Canadian philosophers contributed to this collection of essays, addressing the theme of their practice of Christianity. Both the Roman Catholic and various Protestant traditions are included here, but the majority of writers are affiliated with or have been influenced by the philosophy staff at Calvin College and Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan. Alvin Plantinga, Mortimer Adler, and John Rist number among the authors, all of whom write well and many of whom write compellingly. However, an overall lack of clear audience focus--some are writing for scholars, some for the convinced, some as though they were addressing the callowest undergraduates--calls into question the usefulness of the volume as a whole. The best place for this in the library may be where undergraduate students browse for relaxation or inspiration.
