Apologetics includes a defense of the Christian philosophy of life. Michael Thiessen of the Liberty Coalition Canada joins us to discuss an apologetic for the limits on the authority of the state and the ultimate authority of the kingdom of God that only a Christian worldview can account for.
As Western culture has shifted away from a broadly Christian consensus on basic beliefs of human identity, life, sexuality, history and more, Christian apologetics – the work of defending the Christian philosophy of life – will look different than it did in previous generations.
When a people’s commitment to truth breaks down, they become humiliated. A humiliated, emasculated people is easier to control. Christians have an opportunity and a responsibility to speak the truth effectively to people who have been robbed of their humanity by secularism.
At the 2019 Worldview Leadership Camp, Joe Boot introduces the discipline and practice of apologetics, demonstrating the need for a foundational trust in the Word of God.
At ReformCon 2019, Joe Boot explains that without freedom to live as Christians in every area of society, engaging in culture becomes a moot point.
At the 2019 Worldview Leadership Camp, Cory McKenna of the Cross Current explains why the Word of God must be the foundation for everything we believe, and that we can only recognize the false by first establishing a standard for what is true.
We live in a difficult time to live as faithful Christians. The unbelieving world urgently needs the message of the gospel, whatever the cost may be.
In this updated version of Joe Boot's popular work, he provides clear and engaging answers to the real questions that people are asking – questions of suffering, morality, guilt, and truth. Beginning with a basic understanding of the world, Boot explains the biblical worldview, giving special attention to the life and claims of Jesus Christ. This new edition includes a chapter-by-chapter study guide, designed for group discussion.
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.
Joe Boot appears on Next Week with Jeff Durbin to discuss the message of the gospel and the role of the church in speaking to the public square.
In this field episode of the podcast, Ben Virgo of Christian Heritage London learns about Joe Boot's own story how he came to be an apologist, some of his formative authors, and the nature of human beings and the apologetic task.
