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.

Apologetics? When we as Christians hear this word we shut down , oh that is not for me it is too heavy.
This is a book for you. It breaks it down, gives you an understanding that is very useful.

Books on apologetics are quickly becoming one of my favorite topics within theology to read on. Being that most of my conversations at coffee shops or with neighbors are apologetic related it was with some degree of interest that I read Mere Apologetics by Dr. McGrath. As I read this book I had numerous people asking me what I thought, and I told them, I enjoyed it. Being that I had never read a book by Dr. McGrath, I didnâ€™t know what to expect and he didnâ€™t disappoint.
Mere Apologetics is not an advanced textbook on apologetics but rather an introductory book on apologetics. Furthermore this book does not attempt to provide a rationale for a particular type of apologetics but merely tries to set forth what the Bible teaches about apologetics and then help its readers to engage in apologetics. In one hundred and eighty six pages with nine chapters, Dr. McGrath covers a lot of space from answering, â€œWhat is Apologetics?â€ to the biblical and theological reasons for apologetics, pointers to engaging in apologetics, and developing your own approach to apologetics.
Engaging in apologetics is important for Christians and vital for the Church. Throughout the history of the Church there have been many great and articulate defenders of Christianity. Many of the great battles in our own day demand a response, as new challenges to the Christian faith have arisen in our day. Dr. McGrath in Mere Apologetics offers pointers by outlining manâ€™s sense of longing for justice, beauty order in the physical world and much more. Through the use of arguments, explanations, stories and images he helps the reader to understand what type of apologetics will work best for your personality and audience.
Apologetics is an important and biblical discipline every Christian should engage in. While few Christians will engage in professional level apologetics, every Christian is to engage in apologetics because every Christian is called to make disciples of the nations, and to contend for the faith once and for all delivered to the saints.
Mere Apologetics is a well-written, easy-to-read introduction to apologetics. While the intermediate to advanced student of apologetics will not learn anything new in this book those who have no idea what apologetics is or why they should engage in apologetics will find this book helpful. I recommend reading Mere Apologetics: How To Help Seeks and Skeptics Find Faith by Dr. McGrath.
In reading this book, Iâ€™ve been reminded of the task of apologetics and of the many challenges Christians face in our day. It is not often that I read a book, review it and then pass it on to a friend, but with this book, I am doing just that giving away my review copy to a friend of mine. If you have no idea what apologetics is or why you are to engage in it as a Christian read Mere Apologetics and youâ€™ll gain a good understanding of not only what apologetics is but why practicing this discipline is so important.
