This is one of the finest contemporary books covering the broad spectrum of apologetics that offers both positive evidence for faith and a thoughtful critique of other viewpoints. As a graduate-level seminary professor, Groothuis is thoroughly familiar with the defense of the faith. And while the length of the book may at first glance be somewhat intimidating, the chapters are well-organized and generally straightforward enough for the layperson to grasp. The one possible exception is chapter 10, on the ontological argument for God's existence, a complex subject to condense into a single chapter. On the whole, Christian Apologetics is one of the best resources available on the topic.
