Alvin Plantinga, University of Notre Dame
"Plantinga is at his most persuasive when exhibiting defeats in the naturalist world-view." - Anthony Kenny, Times Literary Supplement
"Plantinga is an intellectual heavyweight in the philosophy of religion, and those who want to keep abreast of the best work in this area would be well advised to read this long-awaited contribution." - The Tablet
"Alvin Plantinga is one of the most eminent philosophers in the world, and a book from him on science and religion is of the first importance. It is a joy to see how he uses precise logical analysis to counter the arguments of his opponents, and issue a
trenchant defence of Christian thought." - Keith Ward, Third Way
"an engaging read ... a very good book, well worth reading by both theists and non-theists for its thoughtful consideration of difficult and contentious issues. I warmly recommend it." - Robert J. Deltete, Philosophy in Review
"a robust defence of religion against the claim that it is defeated by science." - Julian Baggini, TPM
"a highly worthwhile contribution to the contemporary science-and-religion debate, and one which brings the much needed voice of this rigorous philosopher to bear upon the complex conceptual issues at stake. ... The book is
relatively technical, but thanks to Plantinga's generaous use of examples and the relegation of the most technical material to smaller print, the non-specialist should have little difficulty understanding the thrust of this excellent book." - Max Baker-Hytch, Theology
"There is much ... to note and commend in this demanding and rewarding work. ... Yet the present reviewer regards the permanent value of this important book as lying in its critical implications for the beliefs of the 'New Atheism.' Not an easy read, admittedly - but for those with patience and perserverance, this is a highly commendable addition to a pastor's library." - Alister McGrath,
