Apologetics – A Survey of Contemporary Approaches

Mapping Apologetics is a new book from IVP Academic written by Brian K. Morley. I’ve been a long-time lover of apologetics. Take a look at the table of contents. You’ll quickly see why I’m so excited about this excellent book.

Regarding the treatment of his own approach John Warwick Montgomery says “Mapping Apologetics¬†provides the most complete and best analysis to date of my overall apologetic approach.” And John Frame writes “Brian Morley shows mastery of the details of my approach, including the qualifications and nuances.”

He is the author of God in the Shadows: Evil in God’s World and has been a member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Evangelical Philosophical Society and the Society of Christian Philosophers.
