Sean McDowell is the editor, but many others contributed articles. I think I especially like Dan Kimball's article about how to answer those who raise the question of morally difficult passages from the Old Testament and occasionally from the New Testament.
The other stand that article was Michael Licona's "How to question the Bible in a post-Christian world." he says that if we understand that Genesis 3 through Revelation 19 represent God's dealings with people in a fallen world, it might help us to understand some of the strange things that we encounter. He also points out the divine regulation of social constructs does not necessarily demonstrate divine endorsement.
most of the other articles were good also. I appreciated Casey Lutkins' apologetics from intelligent design article as well.
This kind of format makes the book fascinating to read. There is a richness of perspectives and practical advice from men and women across a wide range of experiences. Together they bring to the table the learning from many years of working at different points of intersection between Christianity and our culture.
We all know the culture has been changing in many different ways. This book will be helpful for any Christian who is interested in understanding what those changes look like and how to share their beliefs with others, given that changing climate. It is a must for the one who has a passion for apologetics and evangelism, and a desire to get out there. The contributing writers of this book share their experiences and advice in practical, down to earth ways in their own styles, which makes it hard to put the book down. I highly recommend this book.
It is not easy "...giving an answer for the hope that we have..." in a very secular world. This book was a big help. I have a long list of comments and notes that I will soon incorporate into my own teaching.
Great job Sean!!! Thank you!!
Sean McDowell, the General Editor, outlines the purpose of the book, writing, “In this book, you will see the intersection between apologetics and important topics such as economics, politics, and race. You will learn how to tackle thorny matters of our day such as the transgender issue and religious liberty. You will gain a model for answering tough questions such as the exclusivity of Christ and new challenges to the Bible. And you will learn practical skills such as having apologetics conversations, asking good questions, using social media, and mentoring the next generation” (p.16).
Apologists are often seen as know-it-alls, with type-A personalities, always looking to argue, and prove others wrong. This book looks to break that trend, providing an apologetics approach that is nonabrasive, is more in line with biblical mandates, and remains uncompromised. The heart of McDowell and the other apologists is evident throughout the publication, as they show a great deal of compassion when addressing divisive issues, and recommend strategies to engage non-believers with warmth and love. Overall, this is a great book, and is highly recommended to every Christian, especially those engaged in apologetics, evangelism, and/or church leadership.
