“ . . . a learned and thoughtful book.” –The Expository Times 

 “Alan Sell discusses learned and profound issues with . . . great felicity. He is a scholar who reaches the parts other scholars do not reach. The book is a feast of quotations and stories that have been mined from an extraordinarily wide field . . . readers of all branches of Christianity will find things to interest and set them thinking in this wide-ranging and comprehensive work.” –Faith and Freedom
“. . . there is much that is readily useful for apologetics and this prolific author merits attention from evangelical readers.” –Themelios
 “The book is written in lively and lucid style and exhibits a wealth of learning . . . The text is replete with witty quotations and many of Sell’s own humorous asides. This book is an excellent resource for the philosophical theologian.” –The Journal of Theological Studies
“ . . . this last volume of Sell’s impressive trilogy is both learned and profoundly embedded in the community of the faithful. It’s for sure an encouraging and valuable asset to those engaged with apologetics.’ –Arts Disputandi
“This is an important work. . . He is equally at home in both philosophy and theology. Indeed he demonstrates an amazing breadth in both areas. . . to be commended to anyone who is interested in clear thinking about an important topic. . .” –Philosophical Books
“ . . . the volume is a rich mine of information on the philosophical theologians of the modern era. . . This final volume of Alan Sell’s trilogy is, like its predecessors, a remarkable tour de force. It illuminates innumerable intriguing byways in the history of theology while maintaining the momentum of a grand overall scheme of argument . . . There is an abundance of biographical and reference material. . . it is certainly appropriate to admire the amount of sheer hard work which has obviously gone into the book’s production. . .” –International Journal of Systematic Theology
“. . . wide-ranging and extensively annotated. . . This book provides a fascinating and wide-ranging survey of how Christians have understood and sought to commend their faith to others. . . it will provide a rich source of information. . .” –British Journal for the History of Philosophy
“ . . . a comprehensively researched and erudite study . . . The layout and presentation of this commentary are admirable . . .This is a serious commentary which students of Joshua will need to reckon with. . .” –Irish Theological Quarterly
“ . . . an erudite, charming, elegant and expansive work . . .” –Heythrop Journal“This book is so rich with the detailed history of apologetics, especially in British nooks and crannies too often overlooked, that it deserves a wide readership beyond its Welsh publishing audience. Pastors wanting a refresher course in Christian thought, past and present, will be especially instructed and edified. Here is a review that “confesses” such and “commends” with enthusiasm this exercise in exploring, and advocating for, the Christian faith.” –New Mercersburg Review
“Rooted in scholarship of considerable breadth and depth, the book reveals a thorough knowledge of where the enterprise of apologetics has travelled over the centuries, together with a clear appreciation of the contemporary intellectual climate and its peculiarities. The book is, moreover an intellectually demanding and enjoyable reading experience. This book speaks, with integrity and clarity . . . is most welcome and warmly commended.” –The Ecumenical Review
