With our Foundations series, we are putting theology back where it belongs: in the Church. We believe that Christian scholarship in important doctrinal areas should no longer be the sole prerogative of the academician. Too many professional theologians write from a purely academic perspective that limits their usefulness because their studies have become detached from the life of the Church. Instead, we believe good theology should be the fruit of pastoral labor from those who have spent much time in the text and among the people of God. But we are also concerned that the Church by and large has lost its vision for careful thinking and rigorous scholarship. Therefore, we also desire to bring theology back to the Church for the sake of her health and joy.
Apologetics by the Book | Cliff McManis – For years Christian apologetics has suffered from an identity problem. What constitutes the practice of apologetics? How should engage unbelieving arguments? Should we separate apologetics and evangelism? Examine the latest books on the topic of apologetics and you will find a vast and irreconcilable array of answers to these questions. By rooting his discussion first and foremost in Scripture while examining the most popular apologetic approaches and arguments, Cliff McManis demonstrates that the practice of apologetics is not the prerogative of a few scholars, but the privilege of every Christian.
