In this stalwart defense (apologia) of the Christian faith, James E. Taylor offers a balanced and comprehensive treatment of the core apologetic issues facing believers in the twenty-first century. Sample topics include: worldviewsthe problem of evilthe life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christscriptural canonicity and authorityreligious pluralismpostmodernismethical relativism
Each of the book's twenty-five chapters contains an outline, summary, list of basic terms, reflection and discussion questions, and guide to further reading. Chapter overviews and sidebars enhance this readable text.
What distinguishes this work is its tone, which is neither strident nor polemical. Instead, Taylor's arguments are sensitive, winsome, humble, and fair-minded, especially with respect to his treatment of philosophical and religious systems that challenge Christianity. Unique to Taylor's approach is his vision of apologetics as a discipline that should ideally lead to Christian commitment, discipleship, and spiritual transformation.
