Apologetics
« on: September 20, 2013, 11:28:00 AM »
Can someone recommend a good book that focuses on protestant apologetics? I've read Becoming Orthodox but I was looking for something that's more topic focused.
The true Orthodox way of thought has always been historical, has always included the past, but has never been enslaved by it. . . for the strength of the Church is not in the past, present, or future, but in Christ.

Apologetics for Protestantism or for Orthodoxy?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

if you would like to read 176 pages on line (look away every 15 mins to avoid eye strain)...
then try this:
http://copticorthodoxy.com/BookByPope/Comparative%20Theology.pdf

from the parts of it i have read before and from my skim reading today, there is nothing that would be different to the eastern orthodox interpretation, so i hope it will be very useful to you.
it is written at a fairly easy to understand level (theology graduates may be bored) and nearly half the book is quotes from the Bible explaining the differences between protestant and orthodox Christian belief.
