Winfried Corduan, Reasonable Faith (Nashville: Broadman-Holman, 1993).
No Doubt About It (Nashville: Broadman-Holman, 1997).

philosophy. Furthermore, neither William Lane Craig's
nor J. P. Moreland's books address the problem of evil

point is that a course in apologetics is required of all
students at Taylor University regardless of their major,

conclusions would answer the opening vignettes.

I am grateful to all the various colleagues across the
country who have adopted this book as their textbook in
