L. Russ Bush was a leading Southern Baptist philosopher, apologist, and professor whose landmark book Baptists and the Bible helped fueld his denomination’s conservative resurgence and decisive emphasis on the inerrancy and Scripture. In Defending the Faith, Engaging the Culture, his friends, students, and colleagues pay tribute by writing about the topics that inspired Bush, excerpting from his published and previously unpublished works to support their message.
Themes include Christianity and the Bible, Christian Apologetics, Christianity and Science, as well as Faith and Culture. Co-editor Bruce A. Little, past director of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, gives an inspiring testimony to the ongoing legacy of Dr. Bush in the book’s afterword.
