Sean McDowells Apologetics for a New Generation is a thoroughly intellectual and completely surprising read. This book is a compilation of the writing of several apologeticists (is that a word?) who have experienced the power of the intellectual witness. What really took my breath away in the first few pages was that the main respondents to this type of witness ranges in age from the mid-teens to the late twenties! Peppered between the chapters are short interviews with various other intellectuals who have experienced the logic of coming to Christ. I was thrilled to see contributions by Mark Matlock, a youth pastor who gets my daughters attention at his conference every year, and Lee Stroebel, the author of The Case For Christ.The appeal of the book is that many of us Christians are unprepared to witness intellectually to anyone. We can recall our testimonies and share our faith, but that doesnt mean a hill of beans to those who are looking for facts on which to base their decision for Christ. This book introduces thoughts and resources to help us prepare to be more factual witnesses. I highly recommend it.
