Overview

Universally recognized as one of the most brilliant minds in Christian apologetics, William Lane Craig has proven a formidable opponent for prominent atheists such as Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris. This collection of some of his best philosophical and apologetic works covers the subjects for which he is most well-known: the cosmological argument, the relationship between God’s sovereignty and human free will, and the historicity of the resurrection.

In The Kalām Cosmological Argument, Craig recovers an argument for God’s existence first formulated by Arabic philosophers in the eleventh century. This proof has seen a modern revival—and been subject to fierce debate—thanks largely to Craig’s treatment. Round out your understanding of the cosmological argument with Craig’s The Cosmological Argument from Plato to Leibniz, a survey of the proof’s 13 most famous proponents.

In The Only Wise God: The Compatibility of Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom, Craig suggests that God’s foreknowledge and human will are not incompatible. Rather, God directs all things within creation without violating human freedom.

In The Son Rises: Historical Evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus, Craig argues for the probability of Jesus’ resurrection. He demonstrates that the historical evidence does not allow an easy dismissal of the empty tomb. The most logical and honest explanation for that well-documented event is the miraculous resurrection of Jesus.

Even as interest in the cosmological argument for God’s existence has grown amongst philosophers of religion, few contemporary treatments deal with it fairly and consistently. In this survey of the history of the cosmological proof, William Lane Craig summarizes the thought of the 13 most prominent proponents of the argument. His even-handed analysis is the most comprehensive to date, and alleviates the errors found in other treatments.

Does God exist? Of the many ongoing debates to answer this question, perhaps none is more controversial than the kalām cosmological argument. According to proponents of the argument, a temporal series of past events could not be actually infinite, and therefore the universe has an absolute beginning. Since the universe could not spring uncaused out of nothing, there must be a creator. William Lane Craig provides a broad assessment of the argument in light of recent developments in philosophy, mathematics, science, and theology.

The Only Wise God: The Compatibility of Divine Foreknowledge and Human Freedom

Does God know our actions before we do them? And if so, do human beings truly have free will? William Lane Craig contends that God’s foreknowledge and human free will are compatible. He demonstrates that the Bible teaches divine foreknowledge of human free acts, and reveals two ways of “reconciling divine omniscience with human freedom.”

  • Publication Date: 2000
  • Pages: 156

Is the Christian message of Jesus Christ and his resurrection true? Using 10 strands of historical evidence, William Lane Craig defends the probability that Jesus was resurrected following his crucifixion and death. He examines the origin of the Christian movement and more provocative subjects, such as the Shroud of Turin, parapsychological phenomena, and hallucinations.
