In a world where the dominant intellectual streams of thought are relativism, pluralism, and naturalism, it is our belief that the bastions of truth are rare. Thus, Bastion Books is here to help you “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 1:3). Here you will find inexpensive and quality e-books (sorry, no printed books here) by Dr. Norman L. Geisler on topics of systematic theology, classical Christian apologetics, ethics, and more. You can trust that these e-books are built firmly on the divine authority and inerrancy of the Bible, and historical Christian orthodoxy. They also contain a strong biblical, logical, and Christocentric emphasis for which Dr. Geisler is known.
This is what BASTION stands for:
The Bible is the only divinely authorized source of written information that we have. It’s the written Word of God. As such it is absolutely unique and definitive for anyone in pursuit of truth. God, of course is the source of truth, and he has infallibly revealed truth in the Holy Scriptures. The Bible is written revelation from God, not simply a record of revelation. What Scripture says, God says. Inspiration also implies unbreakability, or infallibility. Our Lord Jesus affirmed that the “Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35). The best way to know more about God is to study his written Word. Here you will find e-books that rest on this foundation.
Dr. Geisler is perhaps best known as an apologist (defender) of the historic, orthodox Christian Faith. Bastion Books is a bastion for classical apologetics. Stay tuned because some great apologetics ebooks should become available here soon.
Dr. Geisler has taught systematic theology on the college or graduate level for over fifty years. While many scholars lean away from systematic theology, Dr. Geisler remains a champion of the approach. He has published a monumental four-volume set of Systematic Theology (Baker Books). Most of the 80 books he has published in the last fifty years are either theological and apologetics books or they at the very least have these elements woven into them.
God is the designer, creator, and sustainer of all finite reality. God is also the author of truth. Bastion Books is a bulwark for objective truth. If something is true, it corresponds to the reality which it depicts. God has revealed an emengs amount of truth to us through the world he created and placed us in (general revelation). God has also given us a collection of sixty-six books that prophets and apostles penned but which God himself inspired (special revelation). In this canon of Truth we learn that Jesus is the only way, the truth, the life, and the way to the Father. For Jesus is God incarnate, the only mdeidator between God and mankind (1 Tim. 2:5).
The Bible is inerrant, that is, wholly true and without error. Jesus declared, “Your word is truth” (John 17:17). To those who denied the truth of Scripture he responded, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures.” (Matt 22:29). The Bible is God’s Word, and God cannot err. While some segments of Christianity are slouching into post-modern critical thought and an increasingly errant view of inerrancy, Dr. Geisler remains one of the foremost champions of inerrancy. He was one of the framers for the standards of inerrancy hammered out in ICBI The Chicago Statemenst on Biblical Inerrancy and Hermeneutics. The e-books available at BastionBooks.com can be trusted to take an uncompromising stance on inerrancy.
Many divinity schools and churches in the Protestant Christian traditions have lost their grip on orthodox Christianity and settled for either liberal or neo-orthodox theologies based on anti-supernatural philosophies. Bastion Books is a bastion of conservative, historic, evangelical orthodoxy based in Scripture and set forth in the Early Christian Creeds.
Dr. Geisler is a defender of moral absolutes over against the relativism and situational ethic of our time. He is also an exponent of graded absolutism which takes a realistically the conflicting situations with which we are confronted in our culture. Also, he articulates the biblical norms over against the utilitarian and pragmatic currents in our culture.
