This timely and accessible book offers a fresh, contemporary introduction to Christian apologetics, arguing for a version that is theological, philosophical, and "catholic" and embracing the whole of human reason. It emphasizes a foundation in theology that is both confident and open and makes reference to philosophy in an accessible way. It includes contributions from authors such as Alister McGrath and Graham Ward and a foreword by John Milbank.
