Publisher's Description

Apologetics is not just for philosophers. We all need wisdom for defending our faith. This book equips us to answer unbelief by means of our most powerful weapon.

Hoping "to get us to open our Bibles again when we think about apologetics," K. Scott Oliphint probes six Scripture texts on the subject. He summarizes their message as follows:

  • Since Christ is Lord, and the battle is his, we are always ready to contend for the faith once for all delivered to the saints.
  • We are to use the weapons, not of this world, but of the Lord.
  • We are to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ as we demolish the arguments, with gentleness and reverence, of those who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, exchanging the truth of God for a lie, worshipping created things, rather than the Creator.

Includes study questions for each chapter.
