Jonathan MS Pearce’s new book, Did God Create the Universe from Nothing? Countering William Lane Craig’s Kalam Cosmological Argument, is now out and doing well. Here are some early reviews from Amazon:

William Lane Craig is considered one of the elite Christian apologists. He is obviously intelligent and erudite and is most well known for his use of the Kalam cosmological argument. In this book Jonathan MS Pearce takes it on and takes it down in an incredibly clear and accessible manner. Pearce has a real talent for communicating complex ideas in a very clear and concise manner for an intelligent general audience. I can honestly say I’ve been impressed with everything I’ve ever read by him.

Most of the text was written by Pearce but he includes several sections by other contributors, all of which are good but the one by someone who goes by Counter Apologist was exceptional.

If you want to know all about one of the most prominent arguments for the existence of God by an apologist and how it goes wrong, terribly wrong, then this is the book for you. It’s not long and tedious but it is comprehensive in just the right amount for an interested reader at about 160 pages. Very highly recommended!

Theists and atheists alike who are familiar with the acclaimed writings and debates of William Lane Craig know that he always attempts to create an accumulated case for Christianity. His arguments usually include one from morality, the resurrection, ontology and a host of others. But all of them rest on the hope that the Kalam cosmological argument is sound. In fact, if that falls, the whole thing falls. If Craig cannot prove at rock bottom a prime mover, his entire repertoire of arguments is clearly on sinking sand.

Philosopher and academic Jonathan Pearce with great articulation and erudition does exactly that. He studiously shows with the same depth that he gave us in his book on “free will” how the KCA fails to convince one of the most thoughtful philosophers of our day and most likely anyone who has ears to hear, eyes to see and without prejudice and an axe to grind. As always, this book is academic but not dry, courteous and not obnoxious, highly convincing and thoughtful. Peace is one of the top intellectuals of our day that has a knack for dissecting and elucidating in-depth and complex subjects with a depth and a clarity that is unmatched.

This is one to get if you think the KCA is convincing or just want to hear one of the top intellectuals dismantle it piece at a time. Highly recommended and Pearce is sharp as a razor.
