Warren Christian Apologetics Center has published a book written by Freed-Hardeman University professor Rolland Pack. The book, “Truth Acknowledged, Rejected, and Applied,” was written for Christians, Pack said, “to help them think carefully about how to share reasons for their faith and hope.”
“The volume is a tribute to my mother’s personal experience with harsh, judgmental believers,” Pack said. Therefore, he focuses his book on Acts 17, Rom. 1 and Heb. 11-12 to explain “what it means for us to be ‘engaging moral philosophy for contemporary apologetics.’” Pack encourages readers to remember Christians share some truths and enough common ground with contemporaries to help them avoid rejecting God’s truth.
In simpler terms, Pack says, his message is, “Be nice to those we want to discover the truth about God, His Son and His Word. Find common ground and build on it.”
Pack, who holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from Georgetown University, was a research and teaching fellow of the Kennedy Institute for Ethics while at Georgetown. He is currently a professor of philosophy and of biblical studies at Freed-Hardeman.
The book is based on a series of lectures given May 10, 2012, at the Second Annual Spring Apologetics Lectures in Vienna, W.Va. It is available from warrenapologeticscenter.org bookstore and from Amazon.
