Resurrection, Scripture, and Reformed Apologetics
A Test for Consistency in Theology and Apologetic Method
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Debate has raged within evangelicalism regarding proper apologetic methodology with little progress. However, in this very helpful work, West breaks the impasse and navigates current apologetic approaches within Christian theology in a highly readable way. He then argues cogently for a presuppositional method that incorporates the best of the other approaches. In a short space, West not only introduces us to contemporary apologetic polemics, he also points the way forward. I highly recommend this work."
--Stephen J. Wellum, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"There are at least three reasons why I highly welcome and recommend this book. First, there is the relevance of and necessity for truly Reformed apologetics in these turbulent times. Second, there is a great need for consensus of opinion on the best possible methodology--based on sound philosophical and other principles--in the implementation of Reformed apologetics. And finally, there is a constant and urgent need for sound doctrine on Scripture and the resurrection . . . The depth and honesty of his research add value to Reformed theology in the global context."
--Callie Coetzee, North West University
"West writes the way he speaks, with clarity, conviction, coherence, and an appropriate sense of humility. His incisive analysis of Reformed approaches to apologetics convincingly shows the necessity of a presuppositional and transcendental orientation, while taking seriously the important contributions of Reformed apologists from other schools of thought . . . An important primer on Christian apologetics and a valuable addition to the library of student, pastor, and apologist alike."
--Joe Boot, Ezra Institute for Contemporary Christianity
