Wow, this should be almost as good as the recent Apologetics315 Essay Series!

Sharada said...

Word.

Silas said...

Great!

Alex Albert said...

Lets try....

Paul said...

Plenty of variety there from some excellent thinkers, but I hope the contributions are not too superficial.

robinlionheart said...

William Demski wouldn't know a good argument if it slapped him upside the head, but I won't hold that against a collection of essays by other authors.

Stephen Weltz said...

Sounds great!

Joseph said...

This would be a nice addition to a slowly growing (err.. currently small) collection of Christian Apologetic's books.

Rod said...

Would love to have a free copy!

scottkeller0975 said...

Looks good. Dembski and Licona together sounds like an interesting pair. Also, in regards to the recent essay series:
"At the end of the month, readers may download an ebook version of the essay collection."
Did it ever come out as an ebook? Thanks.

Satya Maharjan said...

wow, it'll be great to have a free copy. I believe this book will be a handy book for anyone who is interested in apologetics, as many promising writers in the field of apologetics have contributed to form this book.

KD said...

The collection of essays that make up this work look to be promising contributions to apologetics in general, but specifically to the apologetic methodologies in the areas of Classical Apologetics, Evidential Apologetics, and Presuppositional Apologetics. However, what looks even more interesting is that the essays do not appear to be restricted to these approaches. The hope of the reader might be to explore apologetics beyond some of the traditional arguments of the past; particularly relating to advances in the anthropic argument, new evidences and arguments for Jesus and Scriptural authority.

Eric said...

Awesome!

Sincerely, "One commenter to this blog post chosen at random" (but my friends call me Eric) ;)

Matt Kinsley said...

Licona and Dembski are two of the most thoughtful apologists I have ever heard. It will be quite interesting to read this book.

Kinda misleading title since it's not free for everyone like a downloadable e-mail, but I'm not complaining... ;)

Darren Webb said...

Yay free book!

Ken Lewis said...

That is quite a lineup of contributers. This should be an excellent book.

Elvis said...

This should be a great addition to the Apologetics Library. Considering the fact that many great Apologists have contributed to this book, makes it a must for anyone interested in Apologetics.

Mikel said...

Awesome prize. Here's my entry!

Daniel said...

Ok, I'll throw my hat in the ring. That list of names involved in this book is like a who's who in the apologetics world. One way or another, I think I'm going to have to get that book.

Estragon said...

50 Arguments? This book must be something! If I don't get it free, I'll buy it. Great addition to my library!

ch4r1 said...

Or maybe I will, Daniel! :-) Reformed theology would have that the person is already chosen!

Scott said...

Nice, I'll throw my handle into the comments too.

Oh please let my comment be the most random. ;-)

Jules said...

Pick me.

Rob said...

I would love to get this book so I can use it in my high school worldview class.

marcuscollins said...

The contributors include some of my favourite authors. This would be a very valuable resource for me in student/campus ministry.

robinlionheart said...

Considering all the debates William Dembski has lost, he wouldn't seem to be a good source for apologetics, but perhaps the 50 authors he collects will include some who are better at it.

Todd Pitner said...

There is no evidence for God.

Unless He exists.

Which He does...so I'm looking forward to the book. Just ordered it!

Todd

robinlionheart said...

Todd writes: "There is no evidence for God. Unless He exists. Which He does..."

It does sound like you need some new arguments, Todd. :)

Hendrik van der Breggen said...

psykojojo said...

Art said...

Sounds great! Looking forward to reading this.

W said...

Wayne - Count me in. I wish I can get this great book.

southboundin2001 said...

I am sure this book will be a great asset to every christian reading it. The enemy is slowly but surely eroding the truths of God with lies. The enemy is changing our prespectives on life by changing how society views God. The enemy making man think that he is a god therefore we control all. The facts are the facts. God exists and has always exsited. We are all His creation for His glory.

Jay said...

Awesome! I really enjoy Michael Licona and this book would be an awesome addition to my collection. Thanks!
