Christian Apologetics as Cross Cultural Dialogue Hardback
This is a call for a new understanding of apologetics, moving away from appeals to tran-cultural rationality, arguing for a new form of cross-cultural dialogue.
Christian apologetics is in crisis. Old concepts do no longer hold and post-modern development pose new questions.
Benno van den Toren argues for an apologetic witness that is an exercise in cross-cultural dialogue aimed at persuading our conversation partners of the relevance of a life centred on the reality revealed in Jesus Christ.
Some significant steps have been made toward the development of such a new apologetic practice.
The aim of this book is to provide theological and philosophical basis for a new paradigm for Christian apologetic dialogue with our post-modern and multi-cultural world and to work out its practical relevance.
