This volume presents an evangelical appraisal of modern theological thinking. It examines the views of nine leading theologians on the apologetic task today, from Karl Barth and Reinhold Niebuhr to Harvey Cox and Thomas Altizer. The strengths and weaknesses in the theology of each are set forth.
It is the author's contention that modern apologetics is often anchored in the spirit of the age and the values of the culture rather than in biblical revelation. This book calls on Christians to place their trust, not in imperfect human reason, but in God's self-revelation in Christ, which can be discerned only by faith.
