Hope's Reason: A Journal of Apologetics


Hope’s Reason: A Journal of Apologetics is a new periodical that deals with issues broadly pertaining to the defense of the faith. While it is a print journal, each issue is posted online with articles and reviews in PDF format (see below). As each issue is finally compiled, it will be available for purchase by library or individuals.

The editor, Stephen J. Bedard, is one whom readers might be familiar with as the co-author of the excellent book Unmasking the Pagan Christ: An Evangelical Response to the Cosmic Christ Idea with McMaster Divinity College’s principal Stanley Porter. Bedard explains the purpose of the journal thusly:

The purpose of this journal is to provide academically sound apologetic resources that will equip Christians (pastor and layperson) to engage critics and to answer the questions of seekers.

Our vision is to bridge the gap between the academic world and the needs of the local church. This journal represents solid scholarship and provides practical resources for the local church.  This is a peer reviewed journal in order to keep the standards of the resources to an appropriate level of excellence.

I am thankful to the editor and peer-reviewers for accepting an article of mine on presuppositionalism (please forgive the stylistic glitches, they’ll be fixed). I’ve linked it below along with the other articles that comprise the online edition thus far.
