Book Description

31 May 2011 0334043522 978-0334043522
Apologetics, the rational defense of the Christian faith in a public context, using the language of philosophy, is traditionally associated with either Roman Catholic theology or Evangelicalism. The contributors to this book seek to (re-)claim Christian apologetics in an Anglican Catholic context.The book originated in a number of successful Apologetics summer schools at St Stephen's College Oxford which generated interest in the rediscovery of apologetics in the context of today's Church.A star cast of authors from a variety of backgrounds offer constructive reflections on subjects such as:what is Apologetics,common objections to the Christian Faith,the atheism,apologetics and contemporary culture and apologetics in the parish.

Product Description


'This is a stunning book. In simple and vibrant prose, the authors explain our failing attempts to communicate God through colourless, proof style arguments that are all but emptied of mystery and the language of desire. They call, instead, for a healthy tension between clarity and estrangement, logic and wonder. They invite us towards socially and culturally sensitive presentations of the Gospel, rooted in Church tradition and embodied in our own lives. Imaginative Apologetics delivers a prophetic and uplifting message for all Christians.' --Alan Ramsey, St Aldates, Oxford

'Rowan Williams memorably said, as he took up office, that the Church needed to "recapture the imagination of the nation". Many theologians have responded to the challenge: we continue to see in the Church of England a confident and intelligent engagement with contemporary culture and a firm critique of the ways in which secular humanism and New Atheism diminish what it means to be a human person. This book is a tremendous collection of essays that explore how the Christian faith is both reasonable and imaginative: it should be read by all who wonder what culture loses when Christianity is eclipsed.' --Frances Ward, Dean of St Edmundsbury Cathedral

'This attractive volume of essays encourages us to invite others into Christ's way of seeing the world and to step into the life of a community where his new way of living and loving can be found. It is an original and inspiring contribution to the apologetic task of the Church.' --Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry
