My thoughts:

Reasons for Belief was a really good apologetics book. I thought it presented the facts and evidence well and it wasn't hard to read/understand.

I pretty much liked all of the chapters in Reasons for Belief, but two of my favorites were chapter 7: The New Testament and chapter 13: How Should the Truth Impact My Life - both gave me a lot of insight and were memorable to me.

One of my favorite quotes:

The same thing is true of our beliefs: If my premises are wrong, my conclusion will be wrong too. If my beliefs about Jesus are wrong, I'll reach the wrong conclusion about who he is. If I reach the wrong conclusion about who Jesus is, it won't matter how "sincere" I am, how "good" I am, or how "hard" I've tried. I will have erred tragically and inevitably regardless. - Page 197

While I didn't completely agree with everything in Reasons for Belief, it was still a great read and I recommend it.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~ Philippians 4:8
