About this title


This major reference work is offered as a resource for today's church in its life, worship, and mission to the world. It aims to enable readers not merely to defend the gospel of Jesus Christ against attack, but also to commend it positively.
The Dictionary addresses the main intellectual objections to the Christian faith, and puts the case in its favour from a wide variety of perspectives. But since apologetics is the task of the whole person, the contributors also consider how the truth of the church's message can be demonstrated within the diverse elements of contemporary culture.
Christian students and scholars in all major disciplines, pastors and lay leaders of local churches, and anyone actively involved in evangelism or social outreach will be empowered by this dictionary to witness more effectively to Christ, in word and deed.


"Despite our postmodern culture's comparative distrust in reason, it is still essential to present the gospel coherently, to understand the philosophies and worldviews of our day, and to give good answers to good questions. This wide-ranging volume will be an invaluable tool for anyone concerned with that challenge."--Graham Cray, Bishop of Maidstone

"It is essential for the contemporary church to know that what it believes makes sense. At a time when we are increasingly bombarded by attempts to debunk the faith, Christians need a firm grasp on the coherence and credibility of their beliefs. This volume makes a massive contribution to this need and does so in a way that is readily accessible to any person who takes the trouble to think. As this is exactly what every Christian should do, it follows that this is a book for everyone, and not just the specialist."--Nigel G. Wright, Principal, Spurgeon's College

"The New Dictionary of Christian Apologetics provides a wealth of useful material for Christians wanting to share their faith more wisely and sensitively. It testifies to the power of Christianity to withstand the most rigorous scrutiny not only as a set of teachings but also as a way of life."--David Coffey, General Secretary, Baptist Union of Great Britain

"Apologists, both seasoned and new to the discipline of apologetics, should read and reread this book. The range of issues and prominent figures in apologetics covered is impressive, and the treatment of these topics is far more in-depth and nuanced than one might expect from a dictionary of any kind."--Paul Chamberlain, director of the Institute of Christian Apologetics at Trinity Western University, and author of Talking About Good and Bad Without Getting Ugly

"The New Dictionary of Christian Apologetics is testimony to the growing importance and sophistication of apologetics. Its renaissance has captured the imagination of many Christians across denominational lines, for it forms a unique bond between the work of Christian scholars in the ivory tower with the interests and concerns of their brethren in the pulpits and in the pews. This dictionary is an important contribution to this apologetic enterprise."--Francis J. Beckwith, associate professor of church-state studies, Baylor University, and coeditor of To Everyone an Answer: A Case for the Christian Worldview

"In compiling the New Dictionary of Christian Apologetics, its editors have recognized the vast field of Christian apologetics and contributed an enormously helpful resource. This volume presents a detailed summary of the diverse and vibrant history of apologetics, its approaches and proponents, and includes a much-needed examination of apologetics in the non-Western context. I trust this fine work will find its way into many a pastor's and student's library."--Ravi Zacharias, author and speaker

The choice of articles is on the whole excellent. This addition to the apologetics literature of evangelicalism is most welcome.--Jason Button, TheoSource, July 24, 2008

. . .valuable reference work for anyone interested in Christian apologetics. . .--James E. Taylor in Missiology, Spring 2008

The choice of articles is on the whole excellent.--Paul Martin Henebury, The Reluctant Dispensationalist, January 21, 2008

. . . Valuable reference work for anyone interested in Christian apologetics [is] a rich resource for those who think about and engage in the defense of the Christian faith.--James E. Taylor for Missiology, October 2007
