"It would be hard to find a better example of modern atheistic philosophy's love affair with religion, or a more poignant one of the effort of a modern intellectual to keep the faith while eschewing belief."--Religious Studies Review

"The most intellectually exciting modern book on the philosophy of religion."--Anthony Quinton

"Since Kaufmann's book is not only well written, but also the only existing text combining detailed understanding, sympathy, and criticism of both existentialism and analytic philosophy, it becomes a 'must' for any man's spiritual medicine cabinet. Add to this a careful critique of neo-orthodoxy, the Higher Criticism, demythologizing, mysticism, Freudian psychology, and certain aspects of Judaism and Buddhism, and the intellectual treat is obvious."--Commentary

"Kaufmann's discussion, which is lively, extensive in scope, and erudite, contains much to stimulate the philosopher and still more that will give the sincere Christian believer many headaches."--Mind

"A splendid critique of Christianity. A Christian should take this book to a quiet place and enter into a genuine dialogue with it. If it does not make a better man out of him, Kaufmann can hardly be blamed."--Theology Today
