The life and death debate : moral issues of our time by James Porter Moreland( Book )

13 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is an introductory treatment of issues and options in social and bioethics which center on the end of life. The purpose of Moreland and Geisler is to offer a beginning survey of these issues to someone unfamiliar with philosophy. Thus, they have attempted to simplify and summarize various end-of-life topics without being simplistic or caricaturing different viewpoints, even though the authors' own viewpoint is made perfectly clear. A comprehensive bibliography, glossary, and subject and author index make this a valuable textbook as well as a resource for further study.||The major pur

Why I am a Christian : leading thinkers explain why they believe( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite contributions from high-profile writers such as Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell and Peter Kreeft, this anthology adds nothing to the age-old genre of Christian apologetics. It opens with essays defending both truth and theism against postmodern atheists, and eventually moves to specifically Christian teachings: "Why I Believe the Bible Is the Word of God," "Why I Believe Jesus Is the Messiah and Son of God," and "Why I Have Chosen to Follow Christ." Some essays, such as J.P. Moreland's autobiographical discussion of his choice to follow Jesus, are stirring. Others are dull and predictable: Barry Leventhal (Southern Evangelical Seminary), for example, tediously rehearses the Old Testament prophecies that he believes Jesus fulfilled. As a collection, the book is unbalanced. There are, for instance, too many contributions from some writers; editor Geisler offers two essays, as does Liberty University's Gary Habermas. Given the abundance of Christian "leading thinkers," one wishes the editors had been a bit more imaginative and included a greater diversity of voices. Particularly troubling is the total absence of female contributors. In an era in which many women leave the evangelical churches for spiritual homes more friendly to feminism, this book would have been strengthened immeasurably by an essay or two by leading women thinkers explaining why they, too, believe. This disappointing collection of apologetic essays will send readers scurrying back to Cardinal Newman and other bolder, more invigorating defenses of the faith

Introduction to philosophy : a Christian perspective by Norman L Geisler( Book )

12 editions published between 1980 and 2005 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is unashamedly written from a Christian perspective. Thus, in the discussion of various positions we have tried to refute only those views that are anti-Christian. At the same time, we have attempted to present every position as fairly as possible. Among the several Christian perspectives, we have presented argument and counterargument, leaving the teacher or student to judge which view is the most adequate

To everyone an answer : a case for the Christian worldview : essays in honor of Norman L. Geisler by Francis Beckwith( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a society fascinated by spirituality but committed to religious pluralism, the Christian worldview faces sophisticated and aggressive opposition. A prior commitment to diversity, with its requisite openness and relativistic outlook, has meant for skeptics, critics and even many Christians that whatever Christianity is, it cannot be exclusively true or salvific. What is needed in this syncretistic era is an authoritative, comprehensive Christian response. Point by point, argument by argument, the Christian faith must be effectively presented and defended. To Everyone an Answer: A Case for the Christian Worldview offers such a response. Editors Francis J. Beckwith, William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland have gathered together in this book essays covering all major aspects of apologetics, including faith and reason, arguments for God's existence, a case for Jesus, the problem of evil, postmodernism, religious pluralism, and Christian exclusivism
Vital issues in the inerrancy debate by F. David Farnell( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The inerrancy of God's Word has been attacked throughout church history. Today's assaults are unique since neo-evangelicals now surrender to post-modernistic ideas of history and historical-critical ideologies that assault this vital doctrine. They seek to redefine the orthodox meaning of inerrancy. Since the signing of the Chicago Statements, troubling signs have once again appeared in recent years among many who either did not fight the battles for the inerrancy of Scripture as did the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, or who do not remember the troubling times that caused their development. The nature and definition of 'inerrancy' are now being changed to include ideas of fallibility. History is forgotten. The need arises for sounding the alarm for Vital Issues in Inerrancy"--Back cover
