has to do with giving well reasoned answers for believing in Jesus Christ.
meaning of the word is not to express regret - but to defend. A key New Testament
verse is I Peter 3:15, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who
asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have." The word translated,
answer, (or defense) is
in the Greek text. Apologetics has
two main divisions: evidences and polemics. Evidences has to do with giving
positive reasons for believing in Christianity, and polemics has to do with
responding to criticisms of Christianity. Green Leaf Press will sometimes
use the heading Evidences in place of Apologetics, because it appears to be
a more recognizable word for many people.
Thinking About Christian Apologetics,James K. Beilby, (InterVarsity Press) This is a book about apologetics rather than a book centering on apologetic arguments. It explains what apologetics is and what it is not; the proper limitations of apologetics. It deals with the issue of faith and reason. It rejects rigid fideism as well as exclusive dependency on rational argumentation. It reminds us that we must speak the truth in love, and that a good argument can be mortally damaged by an arrogant dismissive spirit. One might describe this book as being about the strategies of apologetics. This is an excellent read and is bound to add to oneís appreciation for and use of apologetics. Dr. Beilby is professor of systematic and philosophical theology at Bethel University, St. Paul, Minnesota.

God Forsaken,Dinesh DíSouza (Tyndale)
One of the critical issues for Christian apologetics is the issue: How Can A Good God Allow Evil? The new atheists, Sam Harris (The End of Faith), Christopher Hitchens, Daniel C. Dennett, Richard Dawkins, et.al. all zero in on this subject. "The biggest question about God is not, surprisingly enough, whether he exists. Itís about whether God is really good. In this book, DíSouza applies recent scientific discoveries in physics, astrophysics, and biology to the persistent problem of evil. The result is a stunningly new and well-reasoned exploration of why a good God can allow so much suffering in this world"

Ten Philosophical MistakesMortimer,J. Adler (Macmillan)
Adler points out that many of the (popular) errors of thought, with which
we wrestle, trace to initially simple errors made by some of the greatest
modern philosophers from the seventeenth century to the present. These
mistakes lead to egregious errors regarding human and animal intelligence,
the establishment of morality and ethics, and the reality of God - among
others. Adler writes in the Prologue: "The least initial deviation from
the truth is multiplied later a thousandfold." So wrote Aristotle in the
fourth century B.C....At the very beginning, before the consequences are
discerned, the mistake appears innocent and goes unnoticed. Only when
we are confronted with the repugnant conclusions to which cogent reasoning
carries us are we impelled to retrace our steps to find out where we went
wrong." Mortimer Adler was one of the foremost teachers in America during
the Twentieth Century. He has served as chairman of the editorial board
of the Encyclopaedia Britannica and as editor of the Great Books of the
Western World. He is the author of more than fifty books. Dr. Adler has
been sympathetic to the Christian worldview for most of his intellectual
life. He converted to Christianity In his early seventies.

A Theory in Crisis
Michael Denton (Adler & Adler)
of the outstanding books in the English language that demolishes the theory
of evolution as it is popularly presented. Dr. Denton is the Senior Research
Fellow in Human Molecular Genetics at the University of Otago in New Zealand.
He reminds us that the Darwinian theory of evolution requires almost an
infinitude of transitional types to accomplish its hypothesized gradual
development. Denton states, "The inter-mediates have remained as
elusive as ever and their absence remains, a century later, one of the
most striking characteristics of the fossil record."
that the development of amino acids and the complex DNA and RNA molecules,
essential to life, could not possibly have occurred by mere chance. The
author writes, "It is surely a little premature to claim that random
processes could have assembled mosquitos and elephants when we still have
to determine the actual probability of the discovery by chance of one
single functional protein molecule!"

the Myths of Darwinism Richard
Milton (Park Street Press)
The author has been
a science reporter in England for more than twenty years. He is astounded
and bewildered at the closed minds he encounters in the scientific establishment
to a rational discussion of the mechanisms of evolution. He states, "I accept
that there is persuasive circumstantial evidence for evolution, but I do not
accept that there is any significant evidence that the mechanism driving that
evolution is the neo-Darwinian mechanism of chance mutation coupled with natural
He says further, "I am seriously concerned, on purely rational
grounds, that generations of school and university teachers have been led
to accept speculation as scientific theory and faulty data as scientific fact:
that this process has accumulated a mountainous catalog of mingled fact and
fiction that can no longer be contained by the sparsely elegant theory."
He emphasizes the
absence of inter-mediate life forms - the limitations to change within
species - and the virtual absence of empirical evidence for the development
of one species out of another. This skillfully written book is for everyone
interested in the evidential basis for evolutionary theory. ISBN 0-89281-884-0

The Devil’s Delusion (Atheism and its Scientific Pretensions), David Berlinski, Basic Books Berlinski is a secular Jew, who in this book, has made a frontal assault on recent writings by atheists like Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, and Richard Dawkins. He is disturbed by their misuse of science in attacking Christianity. He accuses them of the pretense of overrating the accomplishments of science and misrepresenting or even being ignorant of the message of the Bible. Berlinski holds a Ph.D from Princeton University. He is the bestselling author of such books as A Tour of the Calculus, The Advent of the Algorithm, and Newton’s Gift. He writes frequently on scientific and mathematical themes. His attack on the pretensions of Darwinism is devastating. Like Cyrano de Bergerac his parries and sword thrusts are sure, but accompanied by a subtle humor. This book alerts us to the excessive claims of those who oppose Christianity in the name of science. It is both entertaining and informative. ISBN 978-0-465-01937-3 Soft Cover 255 pages
