Study Guide

Here is an almost-completed study guide for my book, Christian Apologetics.
Greg West
Douglas; I have to tell you that I was skeptical of this book. I was under the impression that it would hold my attention about as well as a book on geometry and that it would be pretty much inaccessible to the layman. I was WRONG!!! Since I got this book (paying the retail price of $40 with a gift card I got for Christmas--It's MUCH cheaper on Amazon) I cannot put it down and keep it near me at all times (when I'm home that is).

Your book serves multiple purposes: A totally comprehensive apologetics reference book.

An apologetics classroom textbook.

An thorough introduction to apologetics for any layman.

A truly comprehensive case for Christianity.

And probably more...

Christian Apologetics and Ethics at Denver Seminary

Douglas Groothuis has established the reputation of being one of the
best apologists and Christian philosophers in the Evangelical
community. Now he has developed a new and exciting program in
Christian apologetics and ethics. This program is very important in
light of contemporary culture, and any student who studies with
Groothuis and his colleagues will get first-rate training. I highly
recommend this program. -- J.P. Moreland

When an apologist defends the truth, rationality and pertinence of Christianity, he or she is also advocating a Christ-centered, Spirit-led, bible-honoring way of being. - Douglas Groothuis, "Christian Apologetics"

APOLOGETICS
Christian Apologetics: A Comprehensive Case for Biblical Faith, by
Douglas Groothuis [1] -- as a fellow educator at Denver Seminary
with Groothuis (though part-time), reviewer Robert Velarde uses this
review to laud his colleague's latest book concluding that "no
single volume of apologetics has, in recent years, approached the
comprehensive qualities of Christian Apologetics.
"Intended by the author primarily for use in seminary-level
apologetics courses ... a few portions may pose some challenges to
the lay reader [but] on the whole Christian Apologetics offers an
intermediate level of content that is both scholarly and accessible.
"The approach is that of cumulative case apologetics (chap. 3),
which Groothuis views as superior to fideism, presuppositionalism,
Reformed epistemology, and evidentialist approaches. This, however,
does not mean that Groothuis entirely dismisses competing
apologetics approaches (fideism being the exception).... Cumulative
case apologetics builds a case for the Christian worldview: 'Several
lines of evidence converge on the hypothesis that Christian theism
is the best-attested worldview. ...
"Christian Apologetics strives for a nonpolemical approach, but
in a few instances it will invariably perturb some. ...
"The book is divided into three parts, Part One addresses
'Apologetic Preliminaries' such as methodology, the Christian
worldview, and truth. Part Two, the lengthiest portion, offers 'The
Case for Christian Theism,' in what may be described as a thorough
'systematic theology' of Christian apologetics. ... Part Three
capably confronts three 'Objections to Christian Theism:' religious
pluralism, Islam, and evil." Christian Research Journal, 34:6 -
2011, p53. [3]

Speaking

My new book seems to be generating more opportunities to speak on apologetics. For that, I am grateful. Let me know if I can help you in this regard.
