Christian Apologetics in the Postmodern World

Evangelicals are beginning to provide analyses of our postmodern society, but little has been done to suggest an effective apologetic strategy for reaching a culture that is pluralistic, consumer-oriented, and infatuated with managerial and therapeutic approaches to life. This, then, is the first book to address that vital task. In these pages some of evangelicalism's most stimulating thinkers consider three possible apologetic responses to postmodernity. William Lane Craig argues that traditional evidentialist apologetics remains viable and preferable. Roger Lundin, Nicola Creegan and James Sire find the postmodern critique of Christianity and Western culture more challenging, but reject central features of it. Philip Kenneson, Brian Walsh and J. Richard Middleton, on the other hand, argue that key aspects of postmodernity can be appropriated to defend orthodox Christianity. An essential feature are trenchent chapters by Ronald Clifton Potter, Dennis Hollinger and Douglas Webster considering issues facing the local church in light of postmodernity. The volumes editors and John Stackhouse also add important introductory essays that orient the reader to postmodernity and various apologetic strategies. All this makes for a book indispensable for theologians, a wide range of students and reflective pastors.

The Reason I Believe

The Reason I Believe

How would you respond to the question, "Why should I be Christian instead of Muslim, Hindu, or Buddist?" In answering, you might focus on what Scripture teaches and what you believe - namely, the Gospel message. But the skeptics will press you for more. They will ask why a loving god allows eveil in the world. They will promote science that supports Darwinian theories. They will challenge the relability of Scripture People dont often believe something just because someone says they should, especially when it comes to religion. But what if you answered, "You should be a Christian because Christianity is the only religion that can be proven to be true." And what if you had the evidence to support this powerful claim? In The Reason I Believe, author Allen Quist returns to a basic fact-based defense of Christianity. In doing so, he offers a wealth of compelling evidence for the truthfulness of Christianity, including the existence of God, the reliability of Scripture, and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Quist also presents a biblical response to the problem of evil and the scientific issues with Darwinism, equipping Christians to confidently respond to these common objections to their faith. After reading The Reason I Believe, Christians and skeptics alike will better understand why Christianity requires faith - just not a blind leap of faith.

The Principles of Christian Apologetics

"The study of the science of Apologetics is very necessary in these days of doubt and agnosticism. The fundamental principles which underlie all religious belief are daily called in question. And even if the urgent need of a reasoned grasp of the foundations of Faith did not exist, the interest of the subject of Apologetics, the large outlook upon life which it involves, the coherence of its parts and the cogency of its conclusions make it desirable that an examination into the principles of Theism should be an indispensable adjunct of Christian teaching." --From the Preface

The Old Testament Basis of Christian Apologetics

These theological themes are derived from the Old Testament itself, not adapted from the New Testament. This book serves to fill the gap of a proper biblical-theological foundation of the academic field of apologetics.

The Old Testament Basis of Christian Apologetics

Much has been written on apologetics of the Old Testament canon and historicity, investigating the Old Testament as an object of apologetics. However, this study is the first comprehensive investigation focusing on apologetics within the Old Testament—i.e., the Old Testament theological foundations of the discipline of Christian apologetics— investigating apologetics as an object of the Old Testament. Taking seriously the biblical texts at its outset, the study presents a biblically based scheme of five types of apologetic strategy: narrative apologetics, prophetic apologetics, wisdom apologetics, “citatory” apologetics as antithetic proclamation, and exemplary apologetics. It focuses on the many explicit confrontations in dialogues, disputes, quotes, and responses, in both prose and poetical form, which are accompanied by an indirect dispute, taking substantial space within the historical parts of the Hebrew Bible. These theological themes are derived from the Old Testament itself, not adapted from the New Testament. This book serves to fill the gap of a proper biblical-theological foundation of the academic field of apologetics. It is a new challenge for all apologists who wish to take seriously the biblical theological foundation of their discipline. With its sole focus on the Hebrew Bible, this study speaks to Jewish scholars as well. It enriches the current discussion on Jewish apologetics, its beginnings and first developments.

Christian Apologetics

Professor ALAN RICHARDSON is a theologian whose praise is (or deserves to be) in all the churches on account both of the books which he has written himself and of those which he has edited.' So Dr Alec Vidler, editor of Theology, has written. One reason for Alan Richardson's popularity as a theological writer is that he really does have long practical experience of teaching-as an Oxford tutor, as Study Secretary of the Student Christian Movement in the fateful years 1938-43, as Residentiary Canon and eventually Sub-dean of Durham Cathedral, and since 1953 as Professor of Christian Theology in the University of Nottingham. He has also had practical experience of church life-as a young parson in Liverpool and as the vicar of a Northumberland parish. And he has done much work for the Ecumenical Movement. Emerging from this wide experience, his books reflect his power of presenting difficult and complicated material as clearly as possible. He is a D.D. of Oxford, and an Honorary D.D. of Glasgow.
