In the light of current threats posed to Christianity by intolerant secularism, militant Islam, pantheism, postmodernism, and widespread misinformation, the necessity of an informed and articulate defense of the Christian faith today can hardly be contested.
Reasons for Our Hope offers that timely, sophisticated yet accessible guide to "destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God" (2 Corinthians 10:4-5). The book's thirty-one chapters are divided into four sections:
- Apologetic Methodologies and Systems - A helpful overview of worldviews, the tension between faith and reason, etc.
- Apologetics in Scripture and in History - A look at apologetics in the Old and New Testaments, early church, Middle Ages, Reformation, Enlightenment, and today
- Apologetic Problems - Issues such as the value of philosophy, dealing with skepticism, the problem of evil, miracles, and the resurrection
- How to Use Apologetics in Engaging the World - Guidance to engage the cultist, secularist, postmodernist, Muslim, and Eastern mystic
