The Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics by Norman L. Geisler is the ultimate one-volume reference for Christians who seek meaningful responses to criticisms of their faith. Geisler, a professor of theology and apologetics at Southern Evangelical Seminary, is the encyclopedia's sole author. His previous books--Answering Islam and When Cultists Ask--help qualify Geisler to respond to a wide range of challenges to Christian belief. And this encyclopedia covers almost every conceivable philosophical challenge to Christianity, from "Agnosticism" to "Zen Buddhism." It also summarizes the key points regarding oft-challenged Christian doctrines and beliefs ("Adam, Historicity of," "Virgin Birth of Christ"). Each article is cleanly written and clearly organized. Indeed, Geisler's greatest talent is for logical thinking. Whether he is considering Jesus' view of the Bible or the tenets of Deism, he writes with confident assurance, so that no reader will feel lost.

If you want the best single volume work on the entire field covered by Christian Apologetics, this is the one to get.
I also own the four-volume Systematic Theology by Dr. Geisler and again, would get it for kindle, this time, it is not the cost that is the barrier, but its availability. It seems that it is now in a single volume and that would be the ticket in Kindle format.
I also have several other works by Dr. Geisler. I find myself buying copies of his: "I don't have enough faith to be an Atheist" and giving them to loved ones who could profit from its contents. So, the bottom line: Get as many of Dr. Geisler's books that you can afford, then get some more and skip Starbucks for a while. If you can only afford one, this is it.
I owe much to Dr. Geisler and pray that our Lord will bless him abundantly for his dedication and hard work of scholarship.
