About the Author:

Richard B. Ramsay is a missionary with Mission to the World, assigned to work with Miami International Seminary and Universidad FLET in Florida. He received his BA from the University of Kansas, his MDiv and DMin from Westminster Theological Seminary, and his ThM from Covenant Theological Seminary.

Review:

"Other books have made the point that presuppositional apologetics is compatible with the use of evidences, but few have shown practical ways of bringing these together. The Certainty of the Faith presents an ‘integrated’ apologetic that uses many of the traditional types of arguments, as they are appropriate to different practical situations, always honoring the biblical teachings about how we come to know God. . . . The book is an excellent study tool, with graphics and questions for review and reflection." -- John M. Frame, Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary (Orlando)

"Richard Ramsay has provided college students and, specifically, those who minister to college students, a useful and practical manual giving ‘honest answers to honest questions.’ This book does not simply say, ‘here are the answers and I dare you to think.’ It actually engages the reader in a warm and relational way." -- Rod Mays, national coordinator, Reformed University Ministries

"His apologetic approach is clear, sensitive, adaptive, and bold. It is practically applied in detail and honesty to some of the toughest questions we face about our faith. Good discussion questions at the end of each chapter enhance individual and small group learning. I recommend this book as a terrific aid to our evangelistic endeavors on campus." -- Chris Keidel, area director, InterVarsity Metro Philadelphia/Delaware

Book Condition: NEW. 224pp This book gives Christians greater confidence in their own beliefs, and gives them tools to defend their faith in dialogue with postmodern man. It exposes the uncertainty of non Christian thought, analyzes some of the best arguments of Christian apologists, and suggests answers to the most difficult questions we face.This book suggests answers to six of the most difficult questions that people use to challenge Christianity. It presents a basically presuppositionalist apologetic in a simple and practical manner, and it also shows how we can benefit from other apologists, without compromising our commitment to the Scriptures as our final authority. It shows the uncertainty of non Christian thought, as opposed to the certainty of Christian epistemology. It gives a brief, practical survey of western philosophy, and a brief survey of key Christian apologists.Richard B.
