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 today's 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.

A delightful, thought-provoking book. Makes Pascal understandableto the average reader. This is probably the finest apologetic thathas ever been written. I lead an internet ministry that does evangelismand counseling in chat rooms on the internet, and the ideas in herehave been most helpful to me personally.
