As objective truth has come under suspicion in theological study during recent years, scholars and students have also begun to take less seriously the task of persuading others to believe. Apologetics has been neglected, misunderstood and misrepresented. Unwilling to accept this new status quo, editors William Dembski and Jay Wesley Richards, along with their team of expert contributors, firmly hold that apologetics once again deserves our attention. The editors and contributing scholars, all one-time students at Princeton Theological Seminary, squarely meet some of the most vexing issues in contemporary theological studies pervasive contextualism the question of error in Scripture feminist challenges to our concept of God the nature and coherence of the incarnation the presumption of universalism incursions of science into theology Taking up in turn foundations, Scripture, Christology, theology and science, the essays comprising Unapologetic Apologetics expose the tenets of naturalism and other philosophical systems that too often permeate theological studies without remark, let alone critique or debate. Dembski, Richards and their contributors expertly administer their cure for false ideas--not quarantine but inoculation. Contributors include Michael D. Bush, Raymond D. Cannata, Gary W. Deddo, William A. Dembski, Matthew Frawley, Phillip E. Johnson, James Parker III and Leslie Zeigler. For seminarians and anyone pursuing theological study, Unapologetic Apologetics will become a trusted guide to the philosophical and cultural forces at work in religious education today.
