To Everyone an Answer is a “festschrift” or tribute to Norman Geisler that surveys the science of apologetics and its application to the main challenges of the Christian faith. It is written by over twenty of Geisler’s friends and colleagues and is divided into five parts: 1) Faith, Reason, and the Necessity of Apologetics, 2) God’s Existence, 3) Christ and Miracles, 4) Philosophical and Cultural Challenges to the Christian Faith, and 5) Religions Challenges to the Christian Faith.
I especially enjoyed the chapter, “Facing the Challenge of Postmodernism” where Douglas Groothuis aptly pointed out many of the internal inconsistencies of much postmodern thought. I thought the chapter on Darwin, Design, and Public Schools didn’t fit in well with the book, because the goal shifted from providing evidence for true claims about reality to parsing court decisions related to teaching intelligent design in public schools.
The book is consistent with Dr. Geisler’s evidentialist apologetic method and serves as a helpful introduction to the key arguments for the existence of God and responses to the challenges to the Christian faith.
