Apologists devote their lives to learning the ins and outs of various arguments and how competing views think about the existence of God. Doing apologetics is meant to be a slow and time-consuming process of deconstruction, debate, and reasoning. A manual is needed for those of us who want a good survey of what arguments are out there.
