Editorial Reviews

(from the foreword) - Phillip E. Johnson
"Dembski and Richards have created what deserves to be called the mother of all seminary peer groups, an apologetics seminar where the tough issues are debated even in front of outside critics."
Robert P. Mills
"This guide should be required reading not merely for seminary students but for all who are in any way responsible for their care and feeding. It offers valuable insights and much-needed correctives in a straightforward style and with uncompromising conviction. I regret that I graduated from Princeton Theological Seminary before Dembski and Richards helped begin the Princeton apologetics seminar. The stimulating essays they have drawn from the seminar and collected in this volume would have been a welcome supplement to my course work. No seminary-bound evangelical should leave home without this book."
Peter Kreeft
"Unapologetic Apologetics is another sign of the coming of David and the doom of Goliath. David represents young, vibrant and unanswerable Christian orthodoxy, while Goliath is the reigning liberal/modernist theological establishment. Here are students at a large, 'leading' seminary making more sense than their professors. Goliath cannot stand for long."
J. P. Moreland
"My first reading of Unapologetic Apologetics sent an electric shock through my body. I have been waiting for twenty-five years for someone to write this book, and finally my wait is over! This book is not only a first-rate piece of orthodox Christian scholarship but also an absolutely unique book in its aim and scope. Dembski and Richards address a host of issues--biblical authority; the nature, aim and scope of apologetics; naturalism and its impact on theology and biblical studies; feminism; postmodernism and others--that seminary students and, indeed, Christian leaders must engage if they want to approach their development with an eye on the culture they are called to minister in. This book will be of special interest to those who work on secular college campuses, attend seminary, do graduate or undergraduate work in philosophy or religious studies, or regularly interact with those on the left of the intellectual spectrum. Every evangelical who attends seminary must read this book before he or she graduates."
