Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover This book is a thoughtful introduction to Christian apologetics that is focused on the needs and interests of students but embodies a deep understanding of the underlying philosophical issues. It is a wise and helpful book. -- C. Stephen Evans , Baylor University Introducing Apologetics finds the balance that apologetics books typically lack: it has sweeping breadth without being simplistic, it draws deeply on recent scholarship while remaining completely accessible, and it plumbs theoretical depths while offering practical, relevant wisdom. The result is a book wonderfully suited for the classroom and the nonacademic Christian reader alike. -- Michael J. Murray , John Templeton Foundation [Taylor] employs the tools of analytic philosophy in a manner that is accessible to nonspecialists and integrates historical and biblical evidences in his defense of Christian faith. . . . Taylor is to be commended for envisioning the discipline of apologetics to be done within the context of Christian discipleship. . . . [The book] is irenic and balanced in its presentation of arguments. . . . Taylor covers a wide breadth of issues. . . . [The text] cover[s] many issues found in traditional introductory books on Christian apologetics. Yet, the text is distinct in that it goes beyond these familiar yet important matters to include discussions that have again emerged in contemporary philosophy of religion and philosophical theology, which was certainly refreshing to read. . . . Taylor has provided a very informative and thorough introductory textbook on Christian apologetics. It is certainly a welcomed addition to the field. -- Patrick T. Smith , Philosophia Christi Taylor steers a middle course between 'an overemphasis on reason and an overemphasis on faith.'. . . While there is nothing here that contradicts Catholic or Orthodox Christianity (and much in support), this text defends Christianity more broadly. . . . The text is readable and ideally suited for introductory courses on Christian apologetics, especially at the undergraduate level, and at evangelical institutions. -- Glenn M. Harden , Religious Studies Review Taylor wrote this work as a college textbook with outlines of each chapter, lists of terms and people in each chapter, and review questions. It is both well-organized and highly user-friendly. . . . Taylor carefully crafted his work to help Christians understand who they are and what they believe as they are bombarded by the contemporary philosophies of our day. From a missiological perspective, the author approaches his subject with a Western mindset. He does an excellent job. -- John F. Easterling , Missiology
