Wednesday Giveaway - Christian Apologetics

Categories Theology

Christian ApologeticsEver wanted to know what Aquinas thought about the Trinity? How about what Plantinga has written on the Ontological argument? Or what Calvin believed about the authority of Scripture?

This week’s giveaway, Christian Apologetics: An Anthology of Primary Sources, brings together such key witnesses from across the history of the Church and explores how they went about offering an apology for the Christian faith.

In this book voices like Augustine, C.S. Lewis, and Pope Benedict XVI discuss everything from the existence of God to the Problem of Evil, and you can read their arguments in their own words.

Why does all this talk of Apologetics matter? Well, John Warwick Montgomery, in an excerpt from his chapter A Short History of Apologetics, explains his appreciation of apologetics this way.

“Since the biblical plan of salvation centres on God’s revealing himself in real history, through prophets, priests, and finally by the incarnation of his eternal Son, Jesus Christ, the biblical apologetic is essentially one of asserting and demonstrating the factual nature of the events recounted.”
