What’s Being Said about Making the Case for Christianity
This book is distinctively Lutheran, patently Christian, and genuinely winsome. As such, believers from all branches of Christendom will find this volume both attractive and beneficial. Although the chapters in this fine text focus on a range of topics and are written by different contributors, their commonality is this: every page of this book communicates the Gospel and exalts Jesus. Indeed, such a Christocentric methodology is the best way to make the case for Christianity.—David W. Jones, PhD (Associate Professor of Christian Ethics, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina)
Not a primer nor an encyclopedia, here is the mid-range apologetics we have needed. The authors address several recent challenges to the Christian account of life with responses that are sometimes contentious, sometimes sympathetic, always insightful, and ultimately constructive—a defense that is not merely defensive. The reader will find timely and useable discussions about current apologetics issues that matter.—Russ Moulds, PhD (Professor of Psychology and Education, Concordia University Nebraska, Editor and author of A Teacher of the Church (Wipf & Stock, 2007)
Making the Case for Christianity is a page turner, with plenty to reward both budding and seasoned apologists. I’ve worked on and around these issues for decades, but I found myself repeatedly underlining and circling new things to incorporate into upcoming talks. And the citations are a treasure. Where I found myself taking a different tack with my answers, I still appreciated their pointed and clear-spoken observations.—Mark Coppenger, PhD (Professor of Christian Apologetics, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)
