What the community says about Escape from Reason
- "This is just a bad book. Not just bad for coping parents, but just bad. It's full of flawed theories and created research that pre-supports the writers own theories. This is basically just as bad as Descartes's "Cogito ergo sum" which he came to after working backwards to find a philosophy that fit his narrative in the belief in God."
- "I really loved this book a lot. Even though a lot of stuff went over my head I still enjoyed it. It had a lot of deep thinking to it, but he did a very good job analyzing patterns and philosophy. I think I may have to re-read the book to understand it a lot more than I did the first time."

in What are the best christian books" If you're going to stand up and tell the world that only your faith is true and valid, you'd better have the wherewithal to back it up. Schaeffer doesn't. He talks about how Thomas Aquinas as the cause of the downfall of Christianity. However, he makes this judgment not after reading Aquinas' own writings, but after reading other people's books about Aquinas. That is not the proper way to create a foundation for "truth.""
- "Shaeffer's Escape from Reason shows its age. I originally read this in the 70s at the recommendation of a Christian friend. When I was cleaning off my book-shelf, I came across it again, and, beyond the laugh, found it to be a perfect gift for the local church book donation drive."
