IVP Academic Christian Apologetics: A Comprehensive Case for Biblical Faith - eBook

The Christian worldview proposes answers to the most enduring human questions. But are those answers reliable?

In this systematic text entitled Christian Apologetics: A Comprehensive Case for Biblical Faith, Douglas Groothuis makes a comprehensive apologetic case for Christian theism--proceeding from a defense of objective truth to a presentation of the key arguments for God from natural theology to a case for the credibility of Jesus, the incarnation and the resurrection. Throughout, Groothuis considers alternative views and how they fare intellectually.

A "Comprehensive Case for Biblical Faith" this most certainly is! Groothuis sets the record straight on the nature of truth, authentic Biblical faith and a proper view of God. Discussing everything from New Atheism to Eastern religion to the life and credibility of Jesus Christ, this is a 'one-stop' apologetics text. With chapters contributed by Craig Blomberg and Richard Hess, this is one book aspiring apologists shouldn't miss out on.
