It has never been more important to articulate the wonder and enchantment of the Christian message. Yet the traditional approaches of apologetics are often outmoded in an age of profound disenchantment and distraction, unable to meet this pressing need.
This winsome apologetics book for a new generation makes the case that Christianity offers a compelling explanatory framework for making sense of our world. Pastor and writer Gavin Ortlund believes it is essential to appeal not only to the mind but also to the heart and the imagination as we articulate the beauty of the gospel.
This book utilizes four frameworks for understanding the world--causation, beauty, story, and love--all of which lead to God, to present a cumulative case for Christian theism. On the basis of these four frameworks, the gospel is warranted, plausible, and even desirable given the way our world works. The book is suitable for use in classes yet accessibly written for pastors and small group leaders.
