For the Hope that is in You: Christian Apologetics & the Biblical Story of Reality

by Joe Boot

September 27, 2018 | 1 Peter 3:15

The apostle Peter wrote that God's people need to always be ready to make a defense "to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." Christians have responded in several ways to this "apologetic mandate," but what is the most biblically faithful approach? How do we present the Christian story in a culture that denies any overarching story or purpose to the world as we know it? The answer lies in first correctly identifying the nature of the hope that is in us; this hope is grounded in the historical work of Jesus Christ, and in his present reign as Lord and King over all the earth and over every area of human activity.

How do we faithfully witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in an age that seems to have abandoned any real notion of truth? Joe Boot demonstrates how to effectively present the gospel without compromising on its essential truths, and examines some of the prevailing worldviews that we must understand and contend with in such a post-truth context.
