Sale price + dynamic pricing

The entire collection is already 45% off, but, if you own a base package, you could get an even better deal! Logos’ dynamic pricing ensures that you never pay for a resource twice. Logos 6 base packages include the Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics. If you already have this volume in a base package, the Norman Geisler Apologetics Library will be even more affordable.

Interconnected reference works

One of the primary benefits of a Logos library is the way the individual resources come together to form a coherent, systematized research tool. For instance, the screenshot below shows the pop-up information for “Augustine” while reading the Baker Encyclopedia of Christian Apologetics. If I click the link, it takes me to that exact section within the resource.

Additionally, when I come upon Bible references and other external links, Logos allows me to open those sources in a separate tab for side-by-side reading, comparison, and study.

    I heard some people becoming agnostic about the inerrancy of the Bible after reading Geisler. “Embarrassing” and “desperate” is the word that I heard most frequently to describe his writings. I’m not a big fan of people who lose faith in Scripture nor of the people through whose writings they lose their faith. Can anybody familiar with Norman Geisler’s writings say something in defense or at least explain to me why he has that effect on modern young thinkers about inerrancy of the Bible?

    P.S. I do not take agnostic side and I do still believe in inerrancy of the Bible. I’m just a young non seminary layperson who wants to know more about the word of God.

      I have read several books by Geisler, including his Systematic Theology and Defending Inerrancy. I don’t see how anyone can come away from either with anything but more confidence in the scriptures.

      In the latter he uses a strong polemic tone to combat some of the aberrant attacks on Scripture. Personally I never got the sense that his tone was over the top, and it most certainly wasn’t ’embarrassing’ or ‘desperate’.

      He is one of the great thinkers of our time and well worth reading!

      I cannot imagine anyone who has really read a Geisler book saying anything in it was embarrassing or desperate. Read some brief comments from four of our Nations foremost theological leaders, on Geisler’s book “Defending Inerrancy.”

      “In yet another generation, the inerrancy of the Bible is being called into question. Defending Inerrancy is a much-needed work and one that will start an important and timely conversation. This is a book that cannot, must not, and will not be ignored.”–R. Albert Mohler Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

      “The authors give a very informative but deeply disturbing digest of several recent attacks on Scripture that have come from supposedly evangelical authors and institutions just in the past decade. It is time for genuine believers to awaken to this issue again and speak up with a clear, united voice of confidence and conviction. We owe a debt to Geisler and Roach for their willingness to stand at the front line in this renewed battle for the Bible.”–John MacArthur, pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California; president, The Master’s College and Seminary

      “The earliest attack of Satan was on the question of whether or not God had really said what our first parents understood him to say. In this superb volume, Geisler and Roach have demonstrated once again that the attack, though an old one, must and can be answered. Anyone engaging the culture needs to read this book.”–Paige Patterson, president, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

      “The biblical doctrine of inerrancy is both true and of crucial importance for the life and health of the church. Geisler and Roach provide an excellent, up-to-date treatment of the recent history of the doctrine, an analysis of what it does and does not mean, and a response to recent attacks against it.”–J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology; author, The God Question
