Product Description

Christianity is experiencing a strong revival in apologetic thinking, a development much welcomed in a time of flux. Christian Apologetics: Past & Present, Volume 2 1500 to Present, editors William Edgar and K. Scott oliphant argue in their introduction that nothing more important than having access to the manuscripts of Christian apologists thro0ugghout the ages will better prepare us here and now for the task of defending the Christian faith.

Here, in Volume 2, a one-of-a-kind resource takes a sweeping look at apologetics from the Reformation to the present. Readings from twenty-six apologists, including Martin Luther, John Calvin, Blaise Pascal, Jonathan Edwards, Sxren Kierkegaard, Francis Schaeffer, Alvin Plantinga, and William Lane Craig are included. With editorial commentary and questions for reflection, Christian Apologetics Past and Present will prove a valuable text for students as well as a unique resource for those interested in defending the faith, especially among students, pastors and other advanced laity.

Endorsements

The texts here assembled are ‘classics’—not in the sense that they answer all legitimate questions about Christianity, but that, when they were written, they made their readers think hard about the faith, and that they continue to do so today. This is a most worthy collection.
-Mark A. Noll,
Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

Understanding apologetics as explicating, affirming, and vindicating Christianity in the face of uncertainty and skepticism, Edgar and Oliphint have skillfully selected the best primary sources to introduce us to this ongoing task. Their work fills a gap in scholarly resources and highlights the strength, wisdom, and solidity of the prominent defenders of our faith.
-J. I. Packer,
Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College; author, Knowing God
