Sept 20, 2014: Think On These Things: How Should I Earnestly Contend for the Faith? Part 4
Previously I offered Lewis and Chesterton as examples of the literary aspect of cumulative case apologetics; as an example of the broadly based combined arguments method, I offer Richard Swinburne and Dr. Kenneth Samples. Although I have not read any Swinburne yet, based on what I have read about him, he is very well known Oxford professor who argues in the cumulative way described by Professor Feinberg. His books are on my wish list, and I look forward to reading them in the future. I am more familiar with Dr. Kenneth Samples, who is part of the apologetics ministry Reasons to Believe. In his writings and podcasts he emphasizes the cumulative case for Christianity, with a special emphasis on abductive reasoning.

Oct 3, 2007: The Reformed Reader: Kenneth R. Samples: “A World of Difference”
I’ve been reading through my copy of Kenneth R. Samples’ new book A World of Difference: Putting Christian Truth-Claims to the Worldview Test. Ken is not only an excellent lecturer, as evidenced by his amazing Sunday school and Academy courses at Christ Reformed Church, he is an equally clear and cogent writer.
Kenneth Richard Samples began voraciously studying Christian philosophy and theology when his thirst for purpose found relief in the Bible. He earned his undergraduate degree in philosophy and social science from Concordia University and his MA in theological studies from Talbot School of Theology. For seven years, Kenneth worked as Senior Research Consultant and Correspondence Editor at the Christian Research Institute (CRI) and regularly cohosted the popular call-in radio program, The Bible Answer Man, with Dr. Walter Martin
In Christianity Cross-Examined, Kenneth R. Samples boldly steps into the courtroom where Christianity is on trial. Going beyond merely presenting a systematic case for the Christian faith, Samples dives into specific accusations against it, from the conventional (If God created everything, then who created God?) to the controversial (Why doesn’t the Bible condemn slavery?).
