This work on Christian apologetics is in three parts. Part One surveys various tests for truth in order to lay the groundwork for testing the truth of various world views. Part Two applies the test for truth to the various world views and concludes that theism is the only adequate world view. Part Three works within the context of a theistic world view to verify the unique claims of historical Christianity as to the deity of Christ and the authority of the Bible. The basic movement in this historic apologetic takes its roots from the apostles in the New Testament, was developed by Augustine, and comes to fruition in later Christians like Aquinas. It is in essence the approach used by the old Princetonian theologians like Warfield and Hodge in the tradition of Calvin and it has been more popularly represented in recent times in the writings of C. S. Lewis. The heart of this apologetic approach is that the Christian is interested in defending the truths that Christ is the Son of God and the Bible is the Word of God. However, prior to establishing these two pillars on which the uniqueness of Christianity is built, one must establish the existence of God. For it makes no sense, to speak about an act of God (i.e., a miracle) confirming that Christ is the Son of God and that the Bible is the Word of God unless of course there is a God who can have a Son and who can speak a Word. Theism, then, is a logical prerequisite to Christianity. What is more, an adequate test for truth is a methodological prerequisite to establishing theism. For unless the Christian apologist has a test by which he can show other systems to be false and theism to be true, then there is no way to adjudicate the claims of various religions and world views. In view of this important problem we unapologetically commit Part One to the prior question of truth tests before an attempt is made to defend theism (Part Two) and the uniqueness of Christianity (Part Three).
At a time when the Christian church faces an ever-increasing challenge from a secular and pluralistic culture, leading apologist Norman Geisler provides a substantive resource for answering the challenge. "Christian Apologetics" addresses issues such as Deism, Theism, Christ's authority, and inspiration of the Bible. Geisler's systematic approach presents both methods and reasons for defending the claims of Christianity. (58)
