K SCOTT OLIPHINT
Apologetics is often considered the hobby of intellectuals, a philosophical “side dish” to Christian truth. But we all need to defend our faith and apply the truth to the concerns of our day.
Often the Bible is left out of this task. We’re told that what we need are strong reasoning skills, not revelation. But “it is the Bible that we need, and must open, if we are going to think about and prepare to do apologetics,” says Scott Oliphint. “To refuse to use the only weapon that is able to pierce to the heart, is to fight a losing battle.” In clear, biblical terms he explains the issues involved in defending the faith and guides us in that effort. Readers will be encouraged to reason from Scripture, confident that the battle belongs to the Lord.
