In down-to-earth language Richard Pratt, has given us this helpful study manual on
apologetics, the task of defending the faith. Far from a theoretical exposition, this training manual teaches how
to answer nonbelievers and to "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." Pratt shows how the
biblical doctrines about humanity and our relationship to our Creator determine how we should do apologetics.
Within this theological framework he examines the premises, attitudes, and specific steps involved in a
genuinely biblical defense of Christianity. Illustrations and review questions help to make this a valuable tool
for individual or group study.
A helpful manual on the defense of the faith.
Pratt succeeds in adapting Cornelius Van Til's basic
apologetical approach in an understandable fashion.
