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.

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.
