A quirky, smart comic which introduces an essential set of critical thinking skills that even the most reasonable reader will benefit from.
The world is a confusing place and every day there is more information we have to sort through. It pours endlessly from our screens, our leaders, our friends, and from posters taped to lamp-posts. Rebecca was overwhelmed and anxious in the face of this deluge until she found reasonableness. Unlike so many techniques and trinkets that promise empowerment, the critical thinking skills presented in How to be Reasonable will make you more confident, cautious, and effective – and maybe even happier.
How to be Reasonable (By Someone Who Tried Everything Else) encourages readers to embrace reason and evidence with a combination of clear, well-researched guidance, and witty asides. Fox’s illustrative style and personal story enriches the experience and will evoke many wry smiles.
He has written or edited more than 30 books, his arguments for God and Jesus are frequently cited by Christian apologists around the world, and he has severely overstated his case through a series of blatant mischaracterizations and philosophical blunders.
You may have heard of William Lane Craig, a professor of philosophy at Talbot School of Theology who is known for debating atheists, but even if you haven’t you have probably heard his arguments through followers and fans. He is known for painting faith as the “reasonable” road, and falsely claiming that he can prove the validity of his religion.
From his work attempting to show evidence for Jesus’ resurrection to his development of the Kalam cosmological argument for the existence of God, Craig is respected among his peers on the Christian side of the religious spectrum. But is that deserved? What’s at the core of these arguments? Are they philosophically sound? More importantly,is thisUnreasonable Faith?
"an excellent destruction of W.L. Craig’s entire apologetics. Cogently argued and factually accurate, this is required reading for anyone keen to question the soundness of anything W.L. Craig has argued over the decades. Which makes it an invaluable resource for refuting Christian apologetics generally."
Richard Carrier, author on the historicity of Jesus.
