There is a widespread belief that reason and faith are incompatible and opposed to each other. Faith is viewed as subjective, emotional, a crutch for those who find the real world too hard. Though many of the world's finest minds hold this view, the Bible teaches that it is the fool who says there is no God. // Dr. R. C. Sproul clearly and simply argues that at its core Christianity is rational. He focuses on defending the basic truth claims for two of the most crucial issues of apologetics: God's existence and the Bible's authority. // In this primer of apologetic thought, Dr. Sproul affirms four logical principles that are necessary for all real discussion and teaches you how to defend your faith in a faithless world. Using the writings of church fathers and philosophers throughout the ages, he uncovers the common ideologies that work against faith. // The defense of the faith is not a luxury or an intellectual vanity. It is a task appointed by God that you should be able to give a reason for the hope that is in you as you bear witness before the world.

"Sproul, a fixture in modern Christian apologetics, addresses the superstructure of the apologetical system, dealing with just two questions while laying down the structure that presuppositional apologetics should take. Discussing myriad issues along the way, Sproul gives logical defense to the concept of the existence of a God and to the validity of scripture. But rather than confronting them directly, he builds the case by a masterful exposition of both the apologetic method and the logical fallacies of the unbeliever's thought system. Tracks are roughly 10 minutes apiece, and Robertson Dean gives an intelligent and intelligible reading, drawing listeners in and keeping their attention while conveying deep philosophical ideas in a way that makes them easy to understand without oversimplification.
