About this question: any books on old testament apologetics?
I can see this question as being problematic simply because it shows a lack of research, but I'm struggling to see how this could be closed as "too broad". It asks a simple yes or no question, to which there's a simple "yes" answer. It's not a list question, and narrowing it down to "books written by denomination/group x" wouldn't change the answer.
As brilliant pointed out by asking these questions...
- What's the main Catholic view on how much it is a duty for Christian children to believe in what their Christian parents believed?
- What's the main main-stream Protestant view on how much it is a duty for Christian children to believe in what their Christian parents believed?
- What's the main Orthodox view on how much it is a duty for Christian children to believe in what their Christian parents believed?
... Scoping isn't always the issue. While there wasn't much support for my Meta post on Can simply adding “ACCORDING TO X” salvage any question? brilliant's series of questions further illustrates the problem of trying to improve questions solely by scoping them.
Back to the question at hand - are there any books on Old Testament apologetics... the question as stated is objectively answerable.
- It's not a duplicate
- It's not off-topic
- It's not unclear what's being asked
- It's not an opinion question.
To me, it looks like this was just a relatively un-researched question, but we don't have a close option for "too basic" or "general reference", so the community picked the only close reason left. That close reason doesn't seem to fit IMO - "Too broad"
Perhaps it really is too broad, and I'm losing my perspective on the community guidelines. Or perhaps the guidelines are getting even more strict.
Please don't take this as me being argumentative. If this really is a question that suffers from a scoping issue, I really want it explained to me, because I just don't see it.
Could someone, anyone, please explain to me how it could possibly be improved by scoping it to a specific group?
