One Apologetics Strategy to Rule Them All
Apologetics is the branch of theology that is concerned with defending or proving the truth of Christian doctrines. Romans 1 gives us the Bible’s own apologetics manual. In Romans, Paul is addressing an audience that had not heard the gospel, which means his approach is uniquely geared toward a secular audience. By “translating” its insights into modern terminology, we can craft a powerful apologetics for our own day that gives us the tools to address any worldview.
Nancy Pearcey is the author of Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, Finding Truth, and two ECPA Gold Medallion Award Winners: How Now Shall We Live (coauthored with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson) and Total Truth.
Her books have been translated into eight languages. She is professor and scholar-in-residence at Houston Baptist University. A former agnostic, Pearcey has spoken at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, USC, and Dartmouth. She was highlighted as one of the five top women apologists by Christianity Today and was hailed in The Economist as “America’s pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.”
