Herein, we have a Reformed approach to apologetics by Presbyterian professor Francis R. Beattie. He contends that the best way to defend Christianity is to offer the unbeliever the essential, fundamental, foundational strength of its doctrines. He presents the rational basis of Christian teaching by contrast with competing views and an investigation of the evidence for the facts of Christianity.
