Norman Geisler's Christian Apologetics

"Geisler is extremely erudite, possessing an astonishing wealth of scholarly knowledge, and displays a remarkable gift of superb organization and clear analysis in laying out his material...I consider Christian Apologetics the best textbook we have on behalf of conservative evangelical Christianity.
-Clark H. Pinnock,
Christian Scholar's Review
Destined to be a major textbook for evangelicals in apologetics...[It will] help a generation of readers and students faced with a tough-minded humanism to give cogent and careful defense of the faith.
-F. R. Howe,
Provides the reader with a fundamentally sound overall approach to Christian apologetics...It will be a valuable addition to any student's library.
Reformed Theological Review
At a time when the Christian church faces an ever-increasing challenge from a secular and pluralistic culture, Dr. Geisler's Christian Apologetics provides a substantive resource for answering the challenge...Christian Apologetics should find a place in the library of all college and seminary students by default. In addition, all others interested in probing the causes and effects of these isms will find the book a challenge but also greatly rewarding.
