“Never before has apologetics been needed more . . . Few contemporary books on the topic are more comprehensive, more systematic, more well documented, and more well illustrated than this one.”
Norman L. Geisler, professor of Apologetics, Veritas Evangelical Seminary
In the light of current threats posed to Christianity by intolerant secularism, militant Islam, pantheism, postmodernism, and widespread misinformation, the necessity of an informed and articulate defense of the Christian faith today can hardly be contested.
Reasons for Our Hope offers that timely, sophisticated yet accessible guide to “destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). The book’s thirty-one chapters are divided into four sections:
Apologetic Methodologies and Systems
A helpful overview of worldviews, the tension between faith and reason, etc.
Apologetics in Scripture and in History
A look at apologetics in the Old and New Testaments, early church, Middle Ages, Reformation, Enlightenment, and today
Issues such as the value of philosophy, dealing with skepticism, the problem of evil, miracles, and the Resurrection
How to Use Apologetics in Engaging the World
Guidance to engage the Cultist, Secularist, Postmodernist, Muslim, and Eastern Mystic
“Drs. House and Jowers have done a wonderful job at providing, in a single volume, a full-orbed education in the defense of the faith. We haven’t seen a book like this in a long time that delves into the definitions, the methodology, the history, the issues, and the practice of this crucial but neglected field of Christian Apologetics.”
Craig J. Hazen, founder/director, Graduate Program in Christian Apologetics, Biola University
“The book’s real strength lies in its treatment of apologetic methodology and the biblical and historical basis of apologetics. It is a delight to see this book published, and I hope it gets into the hands of those who want to know the reasons for our hope.”
