About the Author
Art Lindsley is senior fellow at the C. S. Lewis Institute in Springfield, Virginia. He is a conference and retreat speaker, and he has taught extensively at several theological seminaries. He is also ordained in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church. His books include True Truth, C. S. Lewis’s Case for Christ and Classical Apologetics, which Lindsley co-wrote with R. C. Sproul and John Gerstner. He and his wife, Connie, partner in a teaching and discipleship ministry (Oasis) based in the Washington, DC area.
Apologetics, from the Greek word απολογία (apologia), means to make a defense. There are countless Christian books on apologetics. Many reside on bookshelves in my home. This book is a little different from the rest. Lindsley takes an approach that I have heard in passing but never really grasped until reading this book. His approach is “the apologetic of love.” The author got the idea for the book when traveling in Eastern Europe and Russia where he was speaking on cults and world religions.
