Interesting Christian theology book which attempts to do an end-run around apologetics, claiming that the entire field is catering to to debate in a specific arbitrary world-view. It claims that the Christian/Jewish history is a basis for an alternate way of thinking about the world distinct from the philosophical ideas proposed by the greeks and Romans which we still rely on today. I also felt like this book was somewhat of a "CliffsNotes" guide to various philosophical positions from a Christian perspective. Highly recommended to Christians or Seekers who want to have their mental horizons broadened a bit.
