'... Michael Palmer's "Introduction and Sourcebook" deservedly stands alone as a uniquely creative and inventive approach to the six major arguments for God's existence ... The Question of God posseses an integrity and a coherence completely lacking in similar books of this kind. Simply put it has been exceptionally well thought out, and exceptionally well presented.' - Rob Fisher, Reviews in Religion and Theology

'... a model of its kind - logical, clear and fair-minded. No university or A level student has any excuse for failing after reading it.' - Martin Camroux, Expository Times
