By far, the best book I’ve read on apologetics to-date. I would recommend anyone read this book before they started into Plato or Kant. In so doing, he exposes the modernist paradigm into which many Christians have fallen.
There are no resdy topics on this book yet. The most desired form of criticism from you came in the comment right before mine: I felt that trying to do that would just add to the noise. The only author off-hand who may be simpler is Dr.

No longer do I find myself needing to cede the intellectual high grouond when trying to explain why I beleive in God. For the astute and willing student, Bahnsen provides the tools in this redy to be equipped in their own apologetics to interact meaningfully and biblically with nonbelievers.
Paul warns that Christ should be our starting point so that as verse 4 indicates, “no one may delude [us] with persuasive argument. Always Ready is a phenomenal book. How is this possible in an “atheistic” worldview? Jul 26, Ronnie Winterton rated it really liked it.
