Thus, this collection of apologetics essays by friends and colleagues.
Those I've read so far will certainly cause me over time to read all of these. Especially blessed with Carl Mosser's and Paul Owen's on "Mormonism" and especially the insights on their problems with the Trinity, as well as Abdul Saleeb (who co-authored volume on Islam with Geisler) on Islam. Both provide additional worldview and theological insights which would aid any of us in our outreach to these false theologies.
Excellent defense of apologetics written by Craig Hazen. This well done essay will help any who think apologetics has no right or task in our outreach.
Impressive grouping of Christian apologists such as: Dembski, Craig, Ben Witherinton III, Zacharias. Worth the invest to read.
I especially liked Dembski's Information-Theoretic Design argument and Willaim Lane Craig's chapter on the Ontological argument. Both helped explain things that had previously been presented to me in a rather confusing manner.
The only chapters I did not especially like were W. David Beck's chapter on the Thomistic Cosmological argument and Ronald Nash's chapter on the Problem of Evil. Beck tried to prove specific attributes of the Christian God from the Thomistic Cosmological argument, and it seemed rather contrived and unconvincing. Nash was supossed to discuss the Problem of Evil, and he spent most of his chapter discussing what a worldview was (in the middle of the book, mind you), and never really got around to giving a very good answer to the problem. He simply dismisses the argument as invalid (in his one paragraph response), which I imagine is not going to be very persuasive to any naturalists he may encounter.
Overall, this was a VERY good book which I highly recommend. It is probably the top non-advanced apologetic book released in the last few years. Definitely worth your time to read it.
Overall grade: A
As far as the actual materials themselves, despite the essays being fairly good introductory essays (and I emphasize introductory, this isn't an in depth text on the various issues) overall there is very little "new" material here. I felt that, along with another reviewer, the essays didn't necessarily reflect their respective author's best works. If you really want to get into a topic, this is not the book to do it with. Go read Dembski's "Intelligent Design" or Craig's "Cosmological Argument," or Habermas' various books on the Resurrection (or N.T. Wrights massive book on the topic, for that matter).Read more ›
