One thought on “Expository Apologetics: Answering Objections with the Power of the Word

  1. Alex

    Don t let the scholarly sounding title fool you This is a very accessible book on how to explain what you believe and why you believe it in a way that is natural and winsome Using 1 Peter 3 16 as the central text, Baucham puts that verse in context with the preceding paragraph vv 8 12 with regards to the identity, attitude, speech, and character of the apologist He discusses the relevance of the Old Testament law, answers to common objections to the Christian faith, and finally gives practical a [...]

  2. Jonathan Roberts

    The list of adjectives I could use for this book should be quite long It is a practical Presuppositional apologetic book that I will use over and over again Spectacular, convicting, biblical, exceptional and I could go on and on Go buy this book

  3. John

    I ve read a number of Voddie Baucham s books, always enjoying them, but always finding them to be too basic, and a little too thin on content Don t get me wrong, they serve a need in the church, but I was slow to pick this title up for this reason, having already read fairly widely in presuppositional apologetics I thought, what could he write that wouldn t be retreading ground that others haven t already done better than Baucham could do Well, I stand corrected, and quite amazed This is a GREAT [...]

  4. Will Turner

    Baucham provides a basic but helpful introduction to apologetics of the Van Tillian persuasion What makes apologetics expository is that he seeks to follow Scriptural argumentation where, say for instance, Paul would raise a possible objection to a doctrine and then move on to address, answer, and defend that doctrine An apologist seeks to have answers ready for the hope within him He therefore must know what he believes in order to give reasons for that hope In what I believe was the best chapt [...]

  5. Kaysie Campbell

    I read this book despite the somewhat intimidating title I ve heard Voddie speak in person and have liked his no nonsense style This book actually went over a lot of what I ve heard him say in person but because it was written, I could understand and digest his meaning better I think this book has helped equip me to respond to people s objections to Christianity and point them to the gospel I m going to go back through this book again slower and do what he suggests in familiarizing myself with o [...]

  6. Tyler

    Really helpful primer to presuppositional Apologetics Baucham does a great job expounding on the key texts that determine apologetic methodology He gets notably too Murcia for me in his section on the law, and is a tad to heavy on catechism confessions only in that he occasionally appeals to them without also providing scriptural support particularly when discussing the tripartite division of the law Baucham also repeatedly uses same sex marriage as his case study, which makes the broader applic [...]

  7. Phil Sessa

    If you love aplogetics you have to read this book Many have abandoned creeds, confessions, and catechisms, for philosophy, logic, and reasoning Now I do love philosophy, logo me and reasoning, but I agree we have gotten away from utilizing the creeds, confessions, and catechisms We must use the Word of God as the razor sharp two edged sword that it is in the market place of ideas, on the landscape of world views, and speak the truth to the culture.

  8. Ronnie Winterton

    A great intro to presuppositional apologetics He essentially takes the concepts and ideas from Cornelius Van Til, Greg Bahnsen, and John Frame and condense it to an easy to use method of apologetics and evangelism My favorite part of the book is that it s designed to lead evangelistic conversations and not be an academic debate book Highly recommend

  9. Carrie Anderson

    Expository Apologetics is great for the beginning apologist Voddie is a presuppositional apologist, so I recommend also reading authors that follow classical and evidentiary, but this book is a perfect starter book He also gave me an idea to initiate catechisms with my 10 yr old.

  10. Thomas Hunt

    What an amazing job of show us how easy it is to obey the great commission Thank you for righting this

  11. Greg Miller

    A practical guide, and explanation of real world apologetics with a presuppositional approach outside of a debate setting

  12. Andy Rectenwald

    Baucham Jr gives us great insight on presuppositional apologetics This was a quick, easy read Nothing too complicated, but any pastor would benefit from this book.

  13. Craig Hurst

    While reading books on the theory of various apologetics methods is necessary and beneficial, it is certainly helpful to read books that provide practical discussion and mock conversations on how to employ those methods in everyday life What good is it to know what a method is if you don t know how to use it Presuppositionalism is an apologetics method that has been gaining a lot of ground in the recent years The two best sources for practical explanations of how to use this method have been Ric [...]

  14. Annette

    Quick disclaimer I m a HUGE Voddie Baucham fan I ve followed his books and his preaching for almost 20 years now and rarely does he disappoint And I love it that when I don t agree with something he says in particular, I can see his viewpoint and continue to learn from him because of how he presents his material.Such is the case with this book The introduction alone is worth the read so if you have a kindle, get the free sample so you can at least read Dr Baucham s writing style to see if this i [...]

  15. Daniel Thomas

    For those familiar with Greg Bahnsen or Cornelius Van Til, the presuppositional methodology presented by Baucham is nothing new however, the way in which Voddie presents takes apologetics out of the tower and puts it in the pew, as Patton states in his endorsement of the book His particular application of this method to preaching, teaching, and discipleship helps to further the work of those in the Vantilian vein of encouraging every believer in engaging the unbelieving worldviews that apologeti [...]

  16. Tung

    Most Christians would agree that there is a clear mandate to evangelize yet how to go about it would vary Some ascribe to the relationship heavy, simplistic approach Andy Stanley others support a deeply intellectual approach Ravi Zacharias In this book, Baucham lays out his philosophy on evangelism and apologetics an approach based on Scripture particularly the Ten Commandments , catechesis, and winsomeness yeah, that s the word he uses to describe a personable, friendly, and gentle manner in wh [...]

  17. E

    Excellent look at what is basically presuppositional apologetics Loses a star because slightly tighter editing was called for in places But he handles the topic well He discusses why people disbelieve, and how the apostles particularly Paul handle such disbelief He shows how people stake moral positions without understand where the grounds for such positions come from Baucham encourages his readers to understand basic objections to the faith there are only so many , and to have a decent grasp on [...]

  18. James

    I appreciated Voddie s commitment to keep the ultimate goal of an apologetic conversation in mind to share the gospel He reminds the reader that according to Romans 1 18 20, people don t have a knowledge problem They have a righteousness problem I m also challenged to spend time learning the creeds, confessions, and catechisms that have been used to teach the faith for hundreds of years As a Baptist I ve never studied them much, apart from memorizing the Apostles Creed But now, and especially a [...]

  19. Michael Harshman

    In the Bible, we are called as believers to be able to defend out faith Expository Apologetics was written so we can take the often intimidating word apologetics , which can be an intimidating word but it simply means being able to give an answer for what we believe in Bauchman takes apologetics and breaks it down to where we can learn how to share our faith in a scriptural manner There are some parts where it is a little redundant, but overall, it is a very good read I found it to have some ver [...]

  20. Luis Hernandez

    Extremely reader friendly Voddie Baucham, in my estimation, is the best apologetics teacher who does NOT do any formal debates out there This book gives out the impression that it is only accessible to elders Not so It is for every Christian who is interested in apologetics which we should all have a basic understanding of in the faith, according to 1 Peter 3 15 And it is so clear and concise that I would not hesitate to recommend this to even the newest Christian out there He explains everythin [...]

  21. Matt Smart

    Good ideas in the book, especially applied to preaching Yet, I think Baucham covered way too many topics ranging from homosexuality to how we can discern which OT laws to follow today to a detailed explanation of several creeds For someone who is scared to engage in apologetics this is a good book, but I think there are others who stay on track.

  22. Laramie Gildon

    I think one of my favorite things about this book is its simplicity Voddie doesn t claim to have some new found apologetic style but appeals to scripture and an attempt to preach while answering objections It s a great book that speaks to all believers I highly recommend this book.

  23. Craig Prather

    This book wasn t as engaging as I d hoped it would be Bachman tends to repeat themes quite a bit He does a good job of showing how the apostles use apologetics in their biblical everyday encounters, but I felt this book lacked modern practical tips on how to be a better Christian apologist

  24. Tom James

    A fine introduction into Voddie Baucham s method in preaching he anticipates people s objections and deals with them straight on.
