The Pensées is simply the compelling "Thoughts" of mathematician, physicist,
and religious thinker Blaise Pascal. Originally intending to publish a book
defending Christianity, Pascal died before he could complete it. The thoughts
and ideas for his book were collected and complied, posthumously, and then
published as the Pensées. Pascal's thoughts are as powerful as they are
comprehensive. He discusses with great wonder and beauty the human condition,
the incarnation, God, the meaning of life, revelation, and the paradoxes of
Christianity. He passionately argues for the Christian faith, using both
argumentation and his famous "Wager." His ideas and arguments are sometimes
developed and intricate, at other times, abrupt and mysterious. Consequently,
the Pensées is a startling and powerful book--with each successive read,
one discovers new profound insights. Anyone curious about the Christian faith,
or simply looking for an impassioned defense of it, should look no further than
