About-

Dr. Hackett provides, in digestible form, a comprehensive, systematic, and pervasively philosophical apologetic for the Christian revelation claim. Although the approach is seriously philosophical, the text is free as possible of the earmarks of technical scholarship--reflecting the author's aspiration to "reach the common person who has a deep interest in such questions."

Thus, although positions, arguments, and counter-arguments are discussed (of necessity), these are set forth without distracting encumbrances. Specifically, this book is designed as a substantial textbook for college and seminary courses in apologetics.

In his thorough introduction, "Philosophical Prolegomena," a firm base for the whole study is established by initiating the reader firmly in epistemology and the concept of revelation. The main divisions are:

-- Christiainity and the Revelation Cosmos: A Philosophical Case for a Theistic Metaphysic.
-- Christianity and the Revelational Person: An Historical / Critical Case for the Incarnation of God in Jesus Christ.
-- Christianity and the Revelational Word: The Propositional Expression of Revelation in Scripture.

Dr. Hackett includes on every page parallel marginal summaries and outlines to guide the reader and to facilitate ready reference.
