 Our Description


Peter Kreeft believes that Blaise Pascal is the first post-medieval apologist.  No writer in history, claims Kreeft, is a more effective Christian apologist and evangelist to todays uprooted, confused, secularized pagans (inside and outside the Church) than Pascal.  He was a brilliant man-a great scientist who did major work in physics and mathematics, as well as an inventor-whom Kreeft thinks was three centuries ahead of his time.  His apologetics found in his Pensees are ideal for the modern, sophisticated skeptic.


Kreeft has selected the parts of Pascal's Pensees that are generally considered great and interesting, and most respond to the needs of today, and offers his own comments and insights on applying Pascal's wisdom to today's questions and problems.  Kreeft, who has used Pascal's writings in his college courses for years, attempts to bring the reader into his college classroom where he and his students read, interpret and discuss "the beef" of the Pensees.  Pascal's writings are very lively and eloquent as well as lyrical and incisive. 

Addressed to modern skeptics and unbelievers, as well as to modern Christians for apologetics and self-examination, Pascal and Kreeft combine to provide a powerful witness to Christian truth and goodness. 

"In his usually profound and entertaining style, Dr. Kreeft provides the contemporary reader with a guided tour through the ever-ancient yet ever-modern land of Pascal.  And so, one is led-inexorably and delightfully-to follow Pascal's example in betting on God, with all the atttendant benefits and joys."
