P & R Publishing Apologetics to the Glory of God

Here John M. Frame (No Other God: A Response to Open Theism) unveils some of the "variety and richness of a biblical apologetic." Defining apologetics as "the discipline that teaches Christians how to give a reason for their hope," he distinguishes three main kinds of apologetic: PROOF - presenting a rational basis for faith; DEFENSE - answering objections of unbelief; OFFENSE - exposing the foolishness of unbelieving thought. Frame clarifies the relationships of reason, proofs, and evidences to faith, biblical authority, and the lordship of Christ. He offers a fresh look at probability arguments and gives special attention to the problem of evil. Particularly helpful are his extensive use of Scripture and his presentation of specific lines of argument. A model dialogue in the concluding chapter shows how the various lines of argument work in a conversation with a nonbeliever.

John Frame has given us a gem! One of the best aspects of this book is how radically God-centered the author's thoughts are. Slowly, point by point Frame addresses most of all the revelant topics in current apologetic discussion, and his second chapter on the Problem of evil was wonderful. In his writing Frame doesn't get the reader too bogged down with theological and philosophical terminology, so the reading is very lucid and smooth. If you're doing research over which apologetic method you would like to use, you can't afford to ignore this book. Also see Frame's fuller work on this subject, which supports his thinking in this one, titled "The Doctrine of the knowledge of God"
