Great book, Very helpful, Very logical
This is a great book. Even though it is an encyclopedia it is wonderful to just browse. The author is one of the most respected Christian apologists. The articles are very helpful, logical, and well presented. One minor editing flaw - names don't always include the date of birth and death. Also, it would help to have a stronger topical index. I couldn't find the Divine Command Theory of Ethics in the index even though it is discussed under "Essentialism." But these are minor defects in one of the most useful works on Apologetics ever produced. For a consideration of non-foundationalist approaches to Apologetics, I highly recommed "Reason For the Hope Within" also available from Amazon.com
A "Must-Have" for Every Christian's Library!
Does God exist? Is the Bible, rather than the Koran or the Book of Mormon, the Word of God? Did Jesus really rise from the dead? Is Jesus God in the flesh? These are just a few of the questions addressed in Baker's Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics. This book is undoubtedly one of the most important Christian reference books to be published in many, many years. As another reviewer said, this is Dr. Geisler's magnum opus. He has left no stone unturned in his presentation of the philosophical, theological, and historical evidence that proves the historic Christian Faith as Truth. As a Christian, I am very interested in presenting the truth of the Christian Faith to those who are searching for truth. Dr. Geisler has written an excellent resource that puts the answers right at my fingertips! If you buy only one book for your library this year, this, without question, must be the one! No Christian should be without this book. J. M. Spencer
