For philosophers, the pursuit of truth travels on precise definitions. For Christian apologists, the defense of the faith is founded on the defining Word. And for beginning students of either discipline, the difference between success and frustration begins with understanding the terms and ideas and identifying the thinkers and movements.
The Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics and Philosophy of Religion is designed to be a companion to your study of these two related disciplines. Among its 300 entries are:
- Terms, from a posteriori to worldview
- Apologists, from Abelard to Van Til
- Philosophers of religion, from Alston to Wolterstorff
- Movements, from analytic philosophy to voluntarism
- Apologetic arguments, from the cosmological to the wager
- Theologies, from Arminianism to Zoroastrianism
Here is an affordable and easily accessible help key for your readings, lectures, writing assignments, and exam preparation. It’s a must-have study aid for any student who expects to cogitate on coherentism or ruminate on Ricouer.
