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.
