In down-to-earth language Richard L. Pratt, Jr., has given us this helpful study manual on apologetics, the task of defending the faith. Far from a theoretical exposition, this training manual teaches how to answer nonbelievers and to "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." Pratt shows how the biblical doctrines about humanity and our relationship to our Creator determine how we should do apologetics. Within this theological framework he examines the premises, attitudes, and specific steps involved in a genuinely biblical defense of Christianity. Illustrations and review questions help to make this a valuable tool for individual or group study.
A helpful study manual on apologetics. Using down-to-earth language, Pratt teaches how to answer nonbelievers in a practical format using concepts that any one can understand. Includes illustrations and review questions.
Richard L. Pratt Jr. (MDiv, Union Theological Seminary; ThD, Harvard University) is president of Third Millennium Ministries. He was a professor at Reformed Theological Seminary for over twenty years and is the author of Pray with Your Eyes Open, He Gave Us Stories, and Every Thought Captive.
Richard Pratt has written a manual to help ordinary people engage in apologetics along the lines of Van Tils approach. In the process he has translated the philosophical terminology of Van Tillian apologetic into everyday language . . . both sound and stimulating.
Presents Reformed (or Van Tillian) apologetics in genuinely popular language. . . . In this respect, Pratts book is something of a breakthrough. I would expect and hope that this accomplishment will give the book a wide hearing.
