Many teenagers leave home for college but don't take their faith with them. Popular writer and speaker Sean McDowell offers a solution for this problem: a new way of approaching faith that addresses the questions the emerging generation is asking and that incorporates a radically humble and relational approach.
An impressive list of contributors including Dan Kimball (They Like Jesus but Not the Church), Brian Godawa (Hollywood Worldviews), and Josh McDowell show that today's apologetics must employ...
- a clear connection with everyday life
- an invitation for people to express their doubts and wrestle with tough questions
- a culturally savvy understanding of the way secular people view Christians
- an engaging methodology that captures the imagination before engaging the mind
- a strong emphasis on the resurrection and how it changes everything
This resource is imperative for leaders who are ready to engage a new generation with the claims of Christ.
Sean McDowell is an educator and a popular speaker at schools, churches, and conferences nationwide. He is author of Ethix: Being Bold in a Whatever World, coauthor of 77 FAQs About God and the Bible, Experience Your Bible, and Understanding Intelligent Design, and general editor of Apologetics for a New Generation and The Apologetics Study Bible for Students. He is currently pursuing a PhD in apologetics and worldview studies. Sean’s website, www.seanmcdowell.org, offers his blog, many articles and videos, and much additional curriculum.
The compilation of noted speakers and authors in Apologetics for a New Generation on pertinent topics that face this and our next generation is absolutely outstanding. It is a must read for every parent, youth worker and teacher out there.
No person who is serious about affecting the lives of young people for Christ should be without the insight and wisdom contained in this book. I'd love to see it as required reading in every youth group/small study group across the nation. Our Christian young people need not only to believe in Christ, but be able to defend their faith in Christ and this resource is a definite beginning for this use. Thanks Sean for a job well done.”

Apologetics meets postmodernism. Sean gives me a renewed sense that apologetics really does matter. I will recommend this book to every youth pastor I know.”

Lisa Hatfield4 Stars Out Of 5August 31, 2010Lisa HatfieldLoved this book. Gave me an insight into the minds of young people today and has got me thinking about how I approach sharing my faith with others. The chapter on sharing with the gay community was especially helpful to me. Definitely would recommend this book.

Christy Lockstein4 Stars Out Of 5March 31, 2009Christy LocksteinApologetics for a New Generation edited by Sean McDowell is a collection of essays about how the study and use of apologetics has changed and needs to change to be relevant in the 21st century. Apologetics is the study and defense of Christianity and is often used to try and convince nonbelievers, but because we now live in a postmodern society, the old arguments don't work. There are a lot of great essays in this book to help not only in addressing nonbelievers, but in talking to teens, even those who do have faith. Not every essay succeeds as well as others. Some get caught up in jargon and high-minded language. Others are fascinating reading, and I finally now understand the difference between modern and postmodern thinking! This is a terrific book for youth leaders and church leaders as well as lay people interested in wanting to know how to have successful and interesting conversations about God. The overriding theme of the book is that relationships are necessary before opinions can be shared. It's a good message for everyone.
wyn4 Stars Out Of 5March 30, 2009wynI am not that familiar with Apologetics which is why I read this book. It is a series of chapters written by different people about their view of presenting Christianity to the post-modern generation. All of the chapters were well written and had very interesting and doable suggestions with good basic theological and realistic reasons. This is definitely not a "because I said so" or a "this is how it feels" type of response to the basic question "How do you present Christianity to today's young adults in a manner that will gain their interest and promote their faith?" Every chapter focused on a different theme answer; and I was very impressed with the thoughts that they brought forward. A great read for anyone interested in working with Christian and non-Christian youth in order to strengthen their faith.
