With the demise of objective truth in theology has come less need to take seriously the task of persuading others to believe. As a result, errors and confusion have arisen. Unwilling to accept this new status quo, the authors of this book firmly hold that apologetics once again deserves a chair at the seminary debating table. Taking to their task with vigour, the authors meet head-on some of the most vexing issues in theological studies - the pervasiveness of contextualism, the question of error in Scripture, feminist challenges to our concept of God, the nature and coherence of the Incarnation, the presumption of universalism, and the incursions of science into theology. Throughout these presentations the authors, all one-time students at Princeton Theological Seminary, expose the permeating influence of naturalism in theological studies as well as other philosophical tenets that are neither critiqued nor defended but merely assumed in much mainline theology. As a result, they expertly administer their prescription for exposure to false ideas - not quarantine but inoculation.
