Oliphint, K. Scott
This collection of essays sets in the foreground the necessity of exegetical and theological foundations for any Reformed, Christian apologetic. A Reformed apologetic is only Reformed to the extent that its tenets, principles, and methodology are formed and re-formed by Scripture.
Here, noted theologians show the necessity of the truth of Scripture and the implications of that truth for apologetics—spelling out more clearly the need for, and the beauty of, an apologetic surrounded by the rich truths of the Reformed faith.
