The following is my detailed book outline of R.C. Sproul’s, John Gerstner’s, and Art Lindsley’s book Classical Apologetics. It should serve as an excellent introduction to the classical method of apologetics (and a not-so-excellent critique of presuppositional apologetics) for students of the art and science of apologetics as well as interested lay persons.
From the back cover:
“Must a person accept Christianity on faith alone, or is there a reasoned defense for being a Christian? The authors of this book hold that Christianity is eminently reasonable. The primacy of the mind in the Christian faith can be affirmed without denying the importance of the heart. This book embraces reason without rationalism, personal love without personalism, faith without fideism is our capacity to love Him. The book is divided into three parts. Section I is a prolegomenon dealing with the problems and methods of apologetics. Section II develops the theistic proofs and authority of Scripture. Section III is given over to a critique of presuppositionalism in apologetics, particularly with reference to the thought of Cornelius Van Til. Classical Apologetics will help the thoughtful Christian understand his or her faith better, and it will provide more solid grounds for sharing this faith with others.”
