“Apologetics has a deeply human side that is concerned with the whole person,” say William Edgar. This book bears that out in both tone and content. While affirming the importance of reason in answering unbelief, Edgar invites us to make full use of the diverse forms of persuasion aimed at the unbelieving heart.
In part one he lays out the biblical foundations for apologetics and in part two explores actual objections and arguments. When we understand biblical apologetics and the reasons for disbelief, we will be better able to cut through the intellectual smoke screens of our day.
“Effective apologetics is an art: it addresses the whole person—mind, emotion, and will. With insight and practical wisdom, William Edgar outlines, clarifies, and illustrates the complex apologetic tasks. What intrigues me most is his explanation of how the Bible itself—from start to finish—engages in apologetics. Excellent for both beginning and veteran apologists.” —James W. Sire
