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

  8. Sharada July 2, 2010

    Word.

  9. Silas July 2, 2010

    Great!

  10. Alex Albert July 2, 2010

    Lets try….

  11. Paul July 2, 2010

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

  12. robinlionheart July 2, 2010

    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.

  13. Stephen Weltz July 2, 2010

    Sounds great!

  14. Rod July 2, 2010

    Would love to have a free copy!

  15. scottkeller0975 July 2, 2010

    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.

  16. Joseph July 2, 2010

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

  17. Satya Maharjan July 2, 2010

    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.

  18. KD July 2, 2010

    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.

  19. Eric July 2, 2010

    Awesome!

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

  20. Matt Kinsley July 2, 2010

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

  21. Awesome! Is Dallas Willard a contributing author? He's very smart!

  22. exotesparemboles July 2, 2010

  31. Patrick July 2, 2010

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

  32. Jason Kanz July 2, 2010

    Haven't read it. Would love to. As donkey says, "pick me! pick me!"

  42. Darren Webb July 2, 2010

    Yay free book!

  43. Ken Lewis July 2, 2010

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

  44. Elvis July 2, 2010

    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.

  45. Mikel July 2, 2010

    Awesome prize. Here's my entry!

  46. Daniel July 2, 2010

    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.

  47. Estragon July 2, 2010

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

  48. ch4r1 July 2, 2010

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

  49. Scott July 2, 2010

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

    Oh please let my comment be the most random. 😉

    God bless guys.

  52. Jules July 2, 2010

  53. Rob July 2, 2010

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

  54. marcuscollins July 2, 2010

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

  55. robinlionheart July 2, 2010

    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.

  56. Todd Pitner July 2, 2010

    There is no evidence for God.

    Unless He exists.

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

    Todd

  57. robinlionheart July 2, 2010

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

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

  58. Here's to hoping…

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

  65. southboundin2001 July 2, 2010

    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.

  66. Jay July 2, 2010

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