Two Book Reviews

I have written two book reviews featured in the current issue of Christian Research Journal. The reviews are of C.S. Lewis as Philosopher and Faith Comes by Hearing.

About the Lewis book I write, "The result is a rich and varied tapestry of writing that provides distinctly philosophical insights on The Abolition of Man, Miracles, The Problem of Pain, Mere Christianity, the Chronicles of Narnia, and many other works by Lewis."

On Faith Comes by Hearing, I observe, "While some may think a simple quotation of John 14:6 is enough to rebut inclusivism, noting that Christ himself claimed to be the only way to the Father, the book demonstrates that contemporary inclusivism is too intricate a theological system for such tactics. Fortunately, the editors have compiled excellent essays that will aid readers in understanding and responding to the inclusivism of such figures as Clark Pinnock, John Sanders, and Terrance Tiessen."

Thanks for doing this. I am ordering one of these for a library as a consequence of your mention here.
