John Frame: Apologetics

John Frames Apologetik Apologetics: A Justifikation of Christian Belief ist 2015 in einen neuen, erweiterten Auflage unter Mitwirkung eines Freundes erschienen. Im Vorwort heißt es:

I am delighted to see this new edition of my book. It is an anniversary celebration; the original book was published in 1994, and this one now appears twenty years later. During that period I have done more writing in apologetics, and I am very thankful to the editor, Joe Torres, for adding that material to this book, with his own editorial notes. Joe has been a good friend and correspondent for maybe ten years, has worked with me as a teaching and research assistant, and who understands my apologetic approach as well as anyone else in the world.

My prayer for this book is that it will motivate believers to take the gospel to the streets, even to the world, without fear. Among Christian apologists there are “not many . . . [who] were wise according to worldly standards” (1 Cor. 1:26), but those worldly standards themselves are foolishness in God’s estimation. So we should expect apologists faithful to the Lord to “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ” (2 Cor. 10:5). May God use this book to help believers to present the gospel with such power.

Ich habe die erste Auflage mehrmals gelesen. Es ist eine (leicht) selbstkritische Einführung in die voraussetzungsbewusste Apologetik, wie sie von Cornelius Van Til entwickelt wurde. Ein hilfreiches Buch, das in die Bibliothek von Leuten gehört, die sich mit dem Thema beschäftigen.
