In evangelism, we sometimes say, “Jesus is the Answer!” Unfortunately, we are often unfamiliar with the questions that Christians and Non- Christians are struggling with. While some still wonder about the reliability of the Bible, the resurrection of Christ or whether there is a god, many more are questioning the cultural credibility of Christianity – whether Christians are judgemental, hypocritical, anti-intellectual, homophobic or colonial. In most cases, these new questions take place over conversations – at home, over meals, in church and at the workplace. Many Christians find ourselves unprepared to help our friends navigate their doubts about Christianity.
Cultural Apologetics Through Conversations seeks to provide not only theological-spiritual perspectives and analytical frameworks for apologetic conversations, but also introduce skills for discerning, conversing, and listening to our friends. While the classical apologetic questions will be addressed, we shall focus mostly on the cultural concerns that our society and friends are grappling with. These include Christians behaving badly in society, anti-science, and intellectual behaviour, engaging the LGBTQ+ community, and other cultural concerns. The aim is to help them navigate their doubts and struggles, while living out the love of Christ, so that they can encounter Christ who is ultimately, the one who can transform their lives!
