What a wonderful read! Kreeft and Tacelli show so clearly and logically how the Catholic faith is founded upon Truth. They tackle many problems, such as the existence of objective truth, the existence of God, His divinity and nature, His relationship to nature, as well as other sensitive subjects that are more ecumenical in nature.
Rarely do academics write in a way that is so readable for popular audiences. Those who seek the Truth shall find it. If the seeker is like Sherlock Holmes, then The Handbook is a like a super magnifying glass; it doesn't give all the answers, but it does give many of them.
Overall, a wonderful read. The arguments are beautiful. Recommended for Catholics who want to know how to defend their faith and understand why they believe what they do, or for non-Catholics who are curious about the faith and wonder how it is different from other religions.

This is one of those dangerous books. You see, any thinking reader should be warned that after a serious reading of the clear and logical explanations presented, they are libel to find themselves willingly sitting in a pew at the local Catholic Church. Heaven forbid!
