“Andrew Fuller’s success as an apologist was as much a product of his temperament as of his abilities. To be successful, an apologist must be humble and gracious. The most skillfully crafted argument is of no effect if the intended audience takes offence and ceases reading. Fuller took great care to try to avoid offending his readers. At the same time, Fuller gave no quarter and thus avoided any appearance of weakness.”
