Description:

In a society fascinated by spirituality but committed to religious pluralism, the Christian worldview faces sophisticated and aggressive opposition. A prior commitment to diversity, with its requisite openness and relativistic outlook, has meant for skeptics, critics and even many Christians that whatever Christianity is, it cannot be exclusively true or salvific.What is needed in this syncretistic era is an authoritative, comprehensive Christian response. Point by point, argument by argument, the Christian faith must be effectively presented and defended. To Everyone an Answer: A Case for the Christian Worldview offers such a response.Editors Francis J. Beckwith, William Lane Craig and J. P. Moreland have gathered together in this book essays covering all major aspects of apologetics, including- faith and reason- arguments for God's existence- the case for Jesus- the problem of evil- postmodernism- religious pluralism and Christian exclusivismPreeminent in their respective fields, the contributors to this volume offer a solid case for the Christian worldview and a coherent defense of the Christian faith.

Francis J. Beckwith is a frequent contributor to the Christian Research Journal, a publication of the Christian Research Institute. The journal publishes articles that defend the Christian faith against teachings of other religions and the values of modern life that undermine Christianity's fundamental teachings. Beckwith's articles have dealt with theological issues, such as the deity of Christ, the Trinity, and the occurrence of miracles; he has also analyzed the philosophies of other religions, including the Mormon and Baha'i faiths. Beckwith also writes from a Christian perspective about current and often controversial social issues, such as abortion. Taking a strong antiabortion stance, in The Abortion Debate: Back to the Future and Abortion and Personhood Arguments: A Critical Analysis, Beckwith analyzes the prochoice arguments and then provides counterarguments. He has tackled equally controversial issues in articles on euthanasia, cloning, and civil disobedience. Beckwith's works include Are You Politically Correct? Debating America's Cultural Standards and Affirmative Action: Social Injustice or Reverse Discrimination? Other of his titles include Relativism: Feet Planted Firmly in Midair, and See the Gods Fall: Four Rivals to Christianity. Beckwith received a B.A. from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, an M.A. from Simon Greenleaf University, and a second M.A. and a Ph.D. from Fordham University. He has taught at Fordham, Southern Nevada University, the University of Nevada, and Whittier College. He has also worked with the Nevada Policy Research Institute. Since 1997 Beckwith has been an associate professor of philosophy, culture and law at Trinity Institute University.
