Christian ApologeticsAlan Billings, via The Good Book Stall
For anyone who has undertaken a course in theology (or science) at any British university in the past fifty years, reading this book will come as a very great shock. Although the author is well-acquainted with contemporary scholarship, he refers to books, writers and arguments only to dismiss them. Little or nothing from these sources seems to have had any significant influence on Groothuis’s own thinking, including modern evolutionary science. What the sub-title of this book really means is: a comprehensive case for a very conservative understanding of Christian theology.
Dr Groothuis is professor of philosophy at Denver Seminary in the United States. It is probably fair to say, therefore, that he represents the more conservative American evangelical position. He treats familiar apologetic themes – the question of truth in religion, arguments for the existence of God, Christian anthropology, the claims of Jesus, key Christian doctrines, the problem of evil, religious pluralism and the challenge of Islam. There is even an appendix defending one understanding of hell as eternal punishment for those who do not believe. Once you have accepted a few basic premises everything is argued cogently, economically and with clarity – and put me in mind of the style of writing of C.S.Lewis. The book is, as the sub-title promises, comprehensive and runs to some 676 pages. If you are a conservative evangelical and want a scholarly account of your position, or if you are not and want to know what Christians of this persuasion really do believe, this will be a useful addition to your library.

'Groothuis is a leading evangelical thinker and Christian Apologetics is a monumental result of decades of study and reflection. Breathtaking in scope, clear in style, this book is now the go-to text in the field. I know of nothing like it, and I enthusiastically recommend it to all who want to learn to give an answer for the hope that is within them.'J. P. Moreland, author of The God Question
