How far would you go to defend your faith? Throughout history God has raised up just the right people to defend the truth of His Word against those attacking the Church. Spanning two millennia of Christendom, Voices of Reason in Christian History takes a fascinating look at the lives, legacies, and primary writings of eleven of the most renowned defenders. Intended for history enthusiasts, Christian school personnel and college professors, homeschoolers, youth and adult Sunday school teachers, this unique compendium offers timeless insights into the risks and endurances it takes to stand up for one's faith.
"It seems that even Christians who enjoy apologetics are seldom very knowledgeable regarding the history of this storied discipline. Further, very few books even address this subject. Gannon Murphy's volume seeks to remedy that lack, not only by choosing major, influential apologists of past generations, but by linking each to his historical context. This should be an invaluable addition to the literature."
- Gary Habermas, Distinguished Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy, Liberty University
"This book is a well written and helpful analysis of a wealth of apologetic materials from a select number of great Christian apologists down through the centuries."
- Norman L. Geisler, President, Southern Evangelical Seminary
"Gannon Murphy has done a great service for both Christian apologists and the wider believing community. With impressive depth, he presents the ideas and arguments set forth by the leading defenders of the faith across the ages. He reminds us of the debt of gratitude we owe to those giants on whose shoulders we stand."
