Product Description

There is apologetics, when the actual Bible, God or the faith are being actively maligned, and then there are the difficult questions that sometimes arise in casual conversation. In this book Paul Copan is addressing the latter, and carefully examines each one - its logic, validity and theological implications. This is what he calls 'everyday apologetics', and whether the questions are directed toward Christianity itself, the Christian worldview, or simply truth and reality he does not shy away from tough problems some people - even Christians - have with the faith. Questions about denominations (Why so many?), lying (Is it okay to lie to Nazis?), and God (Why does He seem so egotistical?) just scratch the surface of Christianity's uniqueness. Over a dozen questions are dealt with head-on, but many others are answered within each chapter, and end-of-chapter suggested reading lists will assist those who need to dig deeper.

Publisher's Description

More than ever, Christians are bombarded with tough faith questions from their pluralistic friends and neighbors. Many of these emerge as "anti-truth claims" and slogans we are all familiar with:
• Why not just look out for yourself?
• Do what you want--just as long as you don't hurt anyone
• Miracles violate the laws of nature
• Aren't people born gay?
Paul Copan has been answering questions like these for many years. In When God Goes to Starbucks, he offers readers solid and caring Christian responses to these and many other concerns that are being discussed in Starbucks, shopping malls, youth groups, and schools. Each chapter provides succinct answers and points for countering the cultural questions believers are faced with today.

Author Bio

Paul Copan (PhD, Marquette University) is the Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics at Palm Beach Atlantic University in Florida. He lives with his wife and five children in Florida.

Publishers Weekly

Copan, a professor of philosophy and ethics at Palm Beach Atlantic University, submits an excellent and comprehensive resource to help Christians contend with controversial questions about their faith. Copan writes eloquently and respectfully on social and moral themes: when is lying biblically acceptable? why does a sovereign god [sic] demand worship from humanity? how can Christians believe theirs is the only way to heaven? what does God have to say about homosexuality and same-sex marriage? Though each topic is approached with care, Copan does not flinch from a biblical stance and delineates each problem with exemplary thoroughness. Thoughtful readers will find great value in his approach to unpacking Christian slogans as related to truth and reality, worldviews and religious belief systems. He expertly unmasks the problematic "personal autonomy" philosophy that makes "sweeping relativistic claims, but then tacks on absolute, inviolable standards at the end." Copan's skillful approach to apologetics provides ample information on hot-topic themes, but some readers may not be up to the challenge of slowly digesting his thought-provoking, weighty explanations.
