Defence of the Truth: Contending for the Faith Yesterday and TodayBy: Michael Haykin
The Apostle Peter's words in 1 Peter 3:15--'In your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defence to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you'--have an element of timelessness about them. The task of defending the Christian faith in the face of unbelief and open rejection of biblical truth and the Christian worldview--sometimes called 'apologetics' is a responsibility laid upon every generation of those who love the Lord Jesus Christ. In the six chapters in this book we look at six incidents in which early Christian leaders had to engage in apologetics. In every case there is much to learn from the arguments used and the ways of seeking to win those opposed to the truth.
