Using the work of C. S. Lewis as a starting point, Markosexamines the key popular apologists and arguments that shape theintellectual defense of the Christian faith today.The vibrant and persuasive arguments of C. S. Lewis broughtabout a shift in the discipline of apologetics, moving theconversation from the ivory tower to the public square. Theresulting strain of popular apologetics-which weaves throughLewis into twentieth-century writers like Francis Schaeffer andmodern apologists like William Lane Craig, Josh McDowell, and LeeStrobel-has equipped countless believers to defend theirfaith against its detractors.Apologetics for the Twenty-first Century usesLewisrs"s work as the starting point for an absorbing survey ofthe key apologists and major arguments that inform apologeticstoday. Like apologists before him, Markos writes to engageChristians of all denominations as well as seekers and skeptics.His narrative, "man of letters" style and shortchapters make Apologetics for the Twenty-first Century easily accessible for the general reader. But an extensive andheavily annotated bibliography, detailed timeline, list ofprominent apologists, and glossary of common terms will satisfy thecuriosity of the seasoned academic, as the book prepares allreaders to meet the particular challenges of defending the faithtoday.
