Endorsements

This attractive volume encourages us to invite others into Christ's way of seeing the world and to step into the life of a community where his new way of living and loving can be found. It is an original and inspiring contribution to the apologetic task of the Church.
-Christopher Cocksworth,
Bishop of Coventry

This is a stunning book. In simple and vibrant prose, the authors explain our failing attempts to communicate God through colorless, proof style arguments that are all but emptied of mystery and the language of desire. They call, instead, for a healthy tension between clarity and estrangement, logic and wonder. They invite us towards socially and culturally sensitive presentations of the Gospel, rooted in Church tradition and embodied in our own lives. Imaginative Apologetics delivers a prophetic and uplifting message for all Christians.
-Alan Ramsey,
St. Aldates, Oxford

If you are at all interested in apologetics, you should read this book...The collection does have a distinctly Anglican flavor, which is one of its strengths; the authors' perspective is just different enough from the typical Evangelical perspective as to bring new insights to the table (and to challenge hidden assumptions as well)...This is an important book--one that anyone seriously engaged in the work of apologetics needs to read carefully...Go order this book--and start thinking about what it might mean for the Gospel if we were equipped with a full, rich, well-reasoned, and imaginative apologetics.
-Holly Ordway,
