The editors have selected some of our most pressing questions, which are considered here without resorting to hyperbole, straw men, or false arguments. There is a humility of approach that graces these essays, helping all of us better understand the Christian mindset.
Students of apologetics will find some excellent work here; including modern revisions of Anselm's argument. Well-reasoned, well-written and well-assembled.
