9780195138078: Humble Apologetics: Defending the Faith Today

Is it still possible, in an age of religious and cultural pluralism, to engage in Christian apologetics? How can one urge one's faith on others when such a gesture is typically regarded with suspicion, if not outright resentment?
In Humble Apologetics John G. Stackhouse brings his wide experience as a historian, philosopher, journalist, and theologian to these important questions and offers surprising--and reassuring--answers. Stackhouse begins by acknowledging the real impediments to Christian testimony in North America today and to other faiths in modern societies around the world. He shows how pluralism, postmodernism, skepticism, and a host of other factors create a cultural milieu resistant to the Christian message. And he shows how the arrogance or dogmatism of apologists themselves can alienate rather than attract potential converts. Indeed, Stackhouse argues that the crucial experience of conversion cannot be compelled; all the apologist can do is lead another to the point where an actual encounter with Jesus can take place. Finally, he shows how displaying an attitude of humility, instead of merely trying to win religious arguments, will help believers offer their neighbors the gift of Christ's love.
Drawing on the author's personal experience and written with an engaging directness and an unassuming nature, Humble Apologetics provides sound guidance on how to share Christian faith in a postmodern world.

From the Author:

'Tis a pity the Publishers Weekly reviewer seems not to like, or even fully understand, my book. It will indeed trouble both those who see apologetics as outmoded in favour of just being nice in so-called interreligious dialogue, and those who still want apologetics to be a religious contest of all-or-nothing, "kill or be killed." But reviewers for the Library Journal, Dallas Morning News, and other media do like and understand the book, as do those who wrote appreciative blurbs for it, including Dr. Os Guinness of the Trinity Forum and Dr. Nicholas Wolterstorff of Yale University. So I hope Amazon customers will give it a good look.

About the Author:


John G. Stackhouse, Jr. is Professor of Religious Studies at Crandall University in New Brunswick, Canada. His previous book, Can God Be Trusted?: Faith and the Challenge of Evil (OUP, 1998) was named one of Christianity Today's books of the year.
