The Challenge Settled Suggestions for Improvement:  Suggestions for Improvement Allow opposing views more grace Reppert’s Apologetic Strategy (From CS Lewis’s Dangerous Idea, pp. 12 – 14):  Reppert’s Apologetic Strategy (From CS Lewis’s Dangerous Idea, pp. 12 – 14) “It seems to me that many discussions of Lewis’s arguments treat these arguments as finished products, to be accepted or rejected as they stand … There are, of course, valid points to be made on the side opposing Lewis … [who] can either be offered as a final answer or as a spur to think the relevant issues through oneself.” Suggestions for Improvement:  Suggestions for Improvement Allow opposing views more grace Add some preliminary remarks as Reppert does Avoid saying, “Such questions xxx is unable to answer.” Avoid criticisms of silence Byl on Hasker (page 243): “Hasker gives no detailed argumentation as to how the soul-field can transcend physical properties. Nor does he give any rationale for the soul-field becoming self-sustaining at, or before, the death of the brain.” Byl on the Soul (page 243):  Byl on the Soul (page 243) “The separation [of body and soul] occurs at death [but] … the soul is ultimately to be reunited with a renewed body.” Suggestions for Improvement:  Suggestions for Improvement Firm up some arguments Byl’s claim that faith is a gift cannot be sustained by the scriptural reference cited. Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Suggestions for Improvement:  Suggestions for Improvement Firm up some arguments Byl’s claim that faith is a gift cannot be sustained by the scriptural reference cited.

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.” Suggestions for Improvement:  Suggestions for Improvement Correct some inaccurate statements Kant is labeled an empiricist (page 38). Euclid’s theorem on the infinitude of primes: Byl claims it is an indirect proof that “starts off by assuming the number of primes is not infinite” (page 145). Goldbach’s conjecture Cast as “any even whole number can be written as a sum of two primes” (page 145).
