Product Description

Throughout history there have been great and articulate defenders of the faith, from Augustine and Aquinas to Jonathan Edwards, G. K. Chesterton, Francis Schaeffer, and C. S. Lewis. But with new challenges comes the need for a fresh apologetic that specifically addresses the arguments levied against faith in our time of scientific atheism and skepticism.

In the spirit of C. S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, Alister McGrath's Mere Apologetics seeks to equip readers to engage gracefully and intelligently with the challenges facing the faith today while drawing appropriately on the wisdom of the past. Rather than supplying the fine detail of every apologetic issue in order to win arguments, Mere Apologetics teaches a method that appeals not only to the mind but also to the heart and the imagination. This highly accessible, easy-to-read book is perfect for pastors, teachers, students, and lay people who want to speak clearly and lovingly to the issues that confront people of faith today.

Author Bio

Alister E. McGrath (DPhil and DD, University of Oxford; Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts) is professor of theology, ministry, and education, and head of the Centre for Theology, Religion, and Culture at King's College, London, and president for the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including the award-winning The Passionate Intellect: Christian Faith and the Discipleship of the Mind. A former atheist, he is respectful yet critical of the new atheist movement and regularly engages in debate and dialogue with its leaders.

Publisher's Weekly

In this easy-to-read book, McGrath (The Dawkins Delusion), a former atheist and president of the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics, offers a guide to help readers develop their own approach to apologetics in a postmodern world. He provides insight into the history of apologetics, offers a theological basis for apologetics, and helpfully distinguishes the task of the apologist from that of the evangelist. He also supplies information on apologetic methods and furnishes two “case studies” of common queries seekers and skeptics may pose. In an attempt, however, to make the book useful to members of all denominations, McGrath does not provide theologically derived responses to the questions apologists will need to answer. Additionally, he frequently deviates into his own apologetic critique of the New Atheism. While many readers may not be interested in this critique and may desire more in-depth guidance for answering common challenges to the Christian faith, McGrath’s book is an accessible manual for those interested in understanding the field of apologetics more broadly.
