An Introduction to Christian Apologetics: Necessity and Purpose (PDF)
Biblical apologetics is the act of defending and affirming the gospel of Jesus Christ, that is, the Christian faith. An Introduction to Christian Apologetics: Necessity and Purpose equips the Christian to understand and engage in basic Christian apologetics. Christians are called to boldly proclaim the gospel of the Son, “contend for the faith” (1 Pet. 3:15; Jude 1:3), and oppose those who attack and distort the fundamentals of Christian doctrine.
An Introduction to Christian Apologetics addresses such topics as,
- The purpose and necessity of apologetics.
- The gospel of the Son.
- The doctrine of the Trinity.
- The deity, preexistence, and incarnation of the person of the Son.
- Justification through faith alone – apart from works.
- The reliability of the NT.
Further, this book addresses both ancient Christological heresies (Gnosticism, Judaizers, Arianism), and modern prevalent heresies (Islam, Roman Catholicism, Oneness Pentecostalism (Modalism), Jehovah’s Witnesses, and LDS (Mormonism), while providing a proper biblical apologetic against them.
