"Dr. Geisler is a living witness to the strugglesof evangelicalism in the past 60 years that has experienced a virulent, growingevangelical decay toward trust in God's inerrant Word. Of all leading biblicalscholars today, Dr. Geisler knows first-hand the dark hour we are facingspiritually right now in this battle for the Bible that rages and to which thiswork documents. He is a veteran Christian soldier who has always boldly,unashamedly, fearlessly stood against assaults on the inspiration, authority,and inerrancy of God's Word--not merely against an expected assault fromliberal unbelieving scholarship but also now even more shockingly from anincreasing evangelical assault that mirrors their liberal counterparts. . ."
--F. David Farnell, Ph.D. Professor of NewTestament, The Master's Seminary
Dr. Geisler's PreservingOrthodoxy is a devastating witness that stands against the latest fads heldby scholars who seek to redefine biblical inerrancy. This necessary andmeticulous work is the gold-standard on many fronts, especially since it waswritten by an eye-witness to the battles for God's Word in thetwentieth-century. In addition, Dr. Geisler brilliantly illuminates andconfronts the modern evangelical attacks on Scripture emerging from well-respectedevangelical scholars. In a very real way, Dr. Geisler's clear voice on thesecrucial topics is much like John the Baptist's voice in the wilderness -unpopular among the challenged scholarly elite and received by those whorealize that God cannot err. This book is a must read for everyone interestedin preserving God's voice in Scripture. I give Preserving Orthodoxy my highest recommendation!
--Joseph M. Holden, President, Veritas EvangelicalSeminary

The extra star was earned by the concluding two chapters on how orthodoxy can be lost and how to preserve orthodoxy. Sadly they were much too brief. I came dangerously close to abandoning this book but I am glad I finished it. Had I known how much better the final two chapters were, I might have skipped ahead and then abandoned the book.
Thanks for writing yet another great addition to the informational field
The true irony behind the above statement is that Geisler himself cannot seem to keep from departing from his own understanding of orthodoxy. Indeed, this book includes one of at least 3 lists of "essentials required for salvation" that I know of - none of which have matched. In his 2005 article for the Christian Research Journal, Geisler listed 14 essential doctrines. Then in his 2008 book "Christianity Without Compromise" Geisler split one into two items, and dropped Christ's Reign from the list altogether. Now Geisler has added Christ's Purity and dropped Final Judgment. It would be nice if this defender of the faith could decide what the faith actually is!
In the end, all Geisler can do is pit his personal understanding of non-authoritative "creeds" (e.g., the ICBI or the ETS) against the non-authoritative personal understandings of others. If you are interested in knowing what Geisler thinks, then this book is for you. But if you want to learn what the actual Orthodox Historic Faith is, you'll need to look further back than 20th Century Evangelicalism.
