Rob Phillips was once embarrassed when he struggled to defend his biblical faith with Jehovah’s Witnesses!
But good came out of it.
He was to ultimately become an articulate and widely acclaimed specialist in defending the Christian faith … as he is today!
Rob wrote this great work: The Apologist’s Tool Kit: Resources to Help You Defend the Christian Faith!” It is composed of 69 helpful chapters, written in understandable language, each of which can become a great resource for personal study and group discussion. It can be obtained at Rob’s website, www.oncedelivered.net, or at www.mobaptist.org and www.amazon.com.
Rob is motivated by the Biblical directive that we are to “ … sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account of the hope that is within you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” (I Peter 3:15)
He has spent years in preparation to help us be obedient to this command.
Examples in the Bible: Apollos, an apologist, ministered by “… demonstrating from the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.” (Acts 18:28)
Regarding the New Testament martyr Stephen: “ … they were unable to cope with the wisdom and the spirit with which he was speaking …” (Acts 6:10) and …
And from Jude: “I felt the necessity to write to you that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down [once delivered] to the saints.” (Jude 3) This King James phrase “once delivered” is the source of Rob Phillips website address: www.oncedelivered.net.
