Jeffrey Stivason

"Apologetic" comes from a Greek term which means “defense.” As Christians, we are called to give a defense for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15). But how? Reason and evidence both play their parts, but Scott Oliphint explains that we must build our case on the ground of Scripture itself. Essays by James Boice, Jeffrey Stivason, Michael Roberts, and Grant Van Leuven further discuss how a Bible-based apologetic should look. The result: a defense that honors God, takes God's Word seriously, and shows respect towards the unbeliever. By God's grace, we will be equipped to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3)
