I am a philosophy student on my way to become an apologist.  All the research and writing that I do for evangelism is exhaustingly time-consuming.  I love Norman Geisler, but, truthfully, spend a lot of time reading other apologists, as well.  I am wondering if it is possible to get the works of any or all of these scholars:

William Lane Craig

Gary Habermas

J.P. Moreland

Paul Copan

John Frame

Greg Bahnsen

Ravi Zacharias

Hank Hanegraff

C.S. Lewis

R.C. Sproul

John Ankerberg

Ron Rhodes

Walter Martin

James Sire

Phillip Johnson

William Dembski

Michael Behe

Stephen Meyer

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  I spend countless hours researching and writing, developing classes, making handouts, etc...  The time I could save with Logos would be invaluable to the work of spreading the gospel.

Anyway, if this is possible, I don't know where else to submit such a request.

Thanks,

T. Myers

Thanks.  It is interesting how much support logos offers for presuppositional apologetics such as Frame, Schaeffer, and Van Til (all of which have virtually all, if not all, of their works represented in the library) in comparison with apologists of other methods, such as evidential or classical.  Geisler has many books, but most of the other apologists I mentioned are only sparsely sampled in the Libronix Library (a book or two), despite the fact that many have published 30 books or more.  I thoroughly enjoy Schaeffer and Van Til, and have read about half of Schaeffer's works, 3 of Van Til's.  However, I must admit that I am classical, though I employ presuppositional methods when I evangelize.  Anyway, thanks for such prompt responses.

Tyrone,

Some of Habermas is already available in Logos (only a couple of them, however).

  • One of Habermas' best books is The Historical Jesus: Ancient Evidence for the Life of Christ.  It is only 14.95 and contains tons of great information.

    Also check out the Complete Works of Francis Schaeffer, and the notes for the Apologetics Study Bible, which is available in Logos 4.

    Lee Webb:
    It can also be found  at
    If you could please read the Forum Guidelines, it would be most appreciated as Logos has asked us not to post links to competittors who sell products. 

    http://community.logos.com/forums/t/10072.aspx

    In respect for their forum guidelines, it would also be nice if you could edit your original post to comply with the guidelines.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, everyone.  I purchased the Geisler Apologetics Library.  I have the Apologetics Study Bible (both in print and on logos).  I own the works of Schaeffer, have most of McDowell's books, Walter Martin's, Ron Rhodes, etc.... I am aware of most of everyone's posts here.  To clarify, what I am actually looking for is a much better apologetics package.  Morey is very controversial and has been involved in some questionable practices.  I will follow the above advice and post on that forum.  A better apologetics package would include sections that have a healthy sampling of each view of apologetics (classical, evidential, presuppositional, etc...), address main areas of difficulty from each view/perspective (parallel works addressing the following topics from each perspective of apologetic method) , such as justifications of Christian Doctrine/Theology (Trinity, Jesus' Deity, etc...) works on worldview, cults and the occult, world religions, science (especially in the light of how prevelant the ID movement currently is), philosophy, bioethics, ethics, reliability/historicity of the Bible, etc....  I'm thinking systematic and comprehensive.  I am overwhelmingly happy with Logos 4.  I love it.  It literally does what it says; it makes Bible Study so much easieir.  So, I am not complaining, but, rather, just daydreaming.

    So sorry!  I was not aware of the guideline.  I would be happy to edit the post to comply.  How do I do this?

    At the top right of your post you will see the "more" button.  Click it and select the option to "edit".  This is only available for 10 hours from the initial post then your ability to edit it goes away.
